In Victorian London, Alice, the wife of scientist-explorer Langdon St. Ives, is murdered by his arch-nemesis, the hunchback Dr. Ignacio Narbondo. St. Ives and his valet, Hasbro, pursue Narbondo across Norway, contesting Narbondo's plot to destroy the earth and, later, efforts to revivify Narbondo's apparently frozen corpse. In the process, St. Ives gains access to a powerful device created by Lord Kelvin, which allows St. Ives to travel through time.

I would recommend it to those that enjoy James P Blaylock novels. It is typical of his portrayal of the quirkiness of the characters.
Nigel Carringtons was well cast as the narrator. His voice and presentation matched the nuances of the plot perfectly, not just a narration but a performance.
