A Riddle in Bronze by Simon Haynes

"A clean, fast-paced novel featuring an eccentric inventor, his mechanically-inclined daughter and a naive young bookkeeper. Throw in a dash of romance and some good old-fashioned pluck, and you have a rousing, satisfying read."

London, England, 1871. When I applied for a position with Professor Twickham and his daughter, I lied about my qualifications. As it turns out, they lied about the job for which I was applying.

Had we not been so untruthful with each other, there might have been fewer night terrors stalking the inhabitants of the City.

Fewer unexplained disappearances.

Fewer deaths.

Now, nobody is safe from the creeping horrors we've unleashed.

With no time to spare, we face an impossible task: we must discover the mysteries in metal in order to right this wrong.

But is it already too late?

Simon Haynes has been writing fiction for over 20 years. This is his 27th published novel.

Author's note: A Riddle in Bronze was inspired by the works of Agatha Christie, Jules Verne, Charles Dickens, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, HG Wells and other greats from centuries past. Like them, I prefer to write 'clean' novels.

This is a self-contained novel, and does not end on a cliffhanger.

(105,000 words, or approximately 400 paperback pages.)
