Steam Punk alternate history horror might aptly describe an interesting take on a mixed mélange of iconic fiction. Eliza Jekyll is the bi-polar protagonist dealing with Dr. Watson's legacy.
This is an interesting book with lots of twists and turns. Eliza is a police physician in a misogynist society. Victorian style
depicted as a soul less police state.
The scene settings are squalid and vile and lead to incessant hand
washing after reading. Seriously the
squalor is palatable as well as the depravity of the
"institutionalization" of the mentally unstable.
Lizzie is both appealing and appalling while simultaneously depicting unbound, unrestricted liberation.
The author did a masterful job in depicting an alternative environment where electricity ran amuck amid the muck. Murder and mayhem abound in this tale of kindred soul discovery.
This book may have been received free of charge from a publisher or a publicist. That will NEVER have a bearing on my recommendations.
