    In an alternative Steampunk universe (c.1885), the plans for Captain Nemo's mysterious Nautilus submarine have been stolen from the British Secret Service. There is only one man who can solve the case, Sherlock Holmes. With his bionic side-kick Doctor Watson, and his brilliant and lethal sister, Mycroft Holmes, Sherlock unravels a mystery that will shake the foundation of the British Empire.

    Narration: Doctor Watson's narrator fits the role but Holme's narrator I felt did not. Overall the narration was good

    It is the Arthur Conan Doyle 1912 story "The Adventure of the Bruce-Partington Plans" with some of the names/genders changed and the Bruce-Partington submarine, changed to the Nautilus. In places especially in the first half it's almost word for word from the original 1912 story.

    The first half reads like a Holmes story the second half reads like some B grade action movie with the bionic man thrown in for good measure. Holmes conclusions are lifted straight from the original story by Arthur Conan Doyle.

    I my opinion this Book will not appeal to people looking for an Arthur Conan Doyle Holmes alternative story, nor is this book really steam punk.
