A series of short stories and novelettes chronicling the adventures of a trio in an alternate history, Edwardian steampunk London of the early 20th century, and sometime abroad.

The first protagonist is James Wainwright, a reclusive engineer with a working-class background sponsored by and dragged willy-nilly into the quickly shifting hobbies of his rich aristocrat friend Alton Bartleby. Until the latter settles for a longer time than usual as a private investigator in the footsteps of a famous and retired "Holmes".

The third member of the trio (though during earlier stories in this collection the men operate as a pair with her as a supporting character, and she has her own parallel adventures) is the aristocrat's long time fiancée Aldora Fiske, a brilliant young woman stifled by the boundaries set on women of her time and class.

They're fairly engaging characters, strongly defined (if not very deeply at first but the extra bits and pieces fall into place nicely with each new story). They face their own challenges both to their perceived strengths and weaknesses. They grow as persons and partners. ( )
