The Bartleby and James Adventures steampunk mystery series follows the cases of consulting detectives Anton Bartleby and James Wainwright through an alternate Victorian history. Their latest adventure takes them high above the greatest city in the world.
Brilliant but socially-awkward inventor and engineer James Wainwright has been accused of murder most foul, and only his savvy partner, Alton Bartleby, can clear his name. The clock is ticking, though, as the true murderer's sabotage threatens to crash the world's largest airship into the teaming streets of London below.
Who are Bartleby and James?
Alton Bartleby is a social savant, the scion of a once pround and noble bloodline, working to restore his family's name. James Wainwright is a brilliant engineer and inventor. Together they take on the cases that Scottland Yard cannot or will not handle.

This is a real quick listen, at under an hour. Very enjoyable and well written, the characters & story are interesting. Wayne Farrell did a fantastic job of bringing this story alive, his characterisations were spot on, he grabs your attention from the beginning. It is a throughly entertaining audiobook.
The music that accompanied the narration was outstanding.
Steampunk atmosphere and airships.
James Wainwright because of his use of physics.
Alton Bartleby - crisp & sure.
The mutiny scene because of the swiftness with which it was put down.
Fun, quick read.
