    The Lizardine Empire is under threat. When Mycroft Holmes is murdered in London, it is up to retired shadow executive Smith to track down his killer and stumble on the greatest conspiracy of his life. Mycroft's protégé, the young Lucy Westerna, returns from Abyssinia with an ancient device that wreaks havoc when activated, summoning into being deadly machines that look like giant tripods. And across the ocean, in Vespuccia, a young Harry Houdini faces death...and the return of an enemy once thought vanquished.
