Review

I listened to this one on the recommendation of a colleague, and it was the perfect cure for a gray winter day! Clockwork, rogue scientists, spies, mysterious trains, men who want to be gods and ancient alliances of thieves all come together for a fun mystery/road trip. At times I got a bit confused about the time period (we see some characters at different, but pivotal, points in their lives), but I mostly just enjoyed the ride. The ending brought to mind Ocean's 11. Try this one if you like capers, quirky characters, and like a great narrator in your audio books.
