About the Book

1855: The Industrial Revolution is in full and inexorable swing powered by steam-driven cybernetic Engines, Charles Babbage perfects his Analytical Engine and the computer age arrives a century ahead of its time. And three extraordinary characters race towards a rendezvous with history and the future. Sybil Gerard - fallen woman, politician's tart, daughter of a Luddite agitator; Edward "Leviathan" Mallory - explorer and paleontologist; Laurence Oliphant - diplomat, mystic, and spy. Their adventure begins with the discovery of a box of punched Engine cards of unknown origin and purpose. Cards someone wants badly enough to kill for.
