Veronica Britton is a Victorian private detective, a specialist in untangling tricky situations that occur in time as well as space. Working alongside her young apprentice Gabrielle Pendleton, she's very much in demand: if a necklace goes missing and you suspect that someone is selling it off in the future as a valuable antique, or you find yourself being blackmailed by someone who knows a little too much about your past, she's your woman.
Smart, efficient and (almost) always discreet, Veronica is the best chronic detective in London. Time travel is an open secret in the city and operates under the supervision of the Ministry, an obscure branch of the British government. Veronica does her best to avoid the Ministry’s agents, but recently they have started to follow her a little too closely. As she navigates the ‘timepools’ of London, Veronica soon uncovers a series of mysteries that are strangely interconnected; a fiendish plot that threatens not just the city, but the whole world. Only by facing up to the secrets of her past can Veronica Britton save the future.
Veronica Britton is steam punk at its best: smart, funny and escapist, with a little something for everyone to enjoy.
