Book View Café is thrilled to announce that Chris Dolley’s new Reeves & Worcester novel will be published on February 9th in both trade paperback and digital format. The cover art is by award winning illustrator Mark Hammermeister.
This is the final version. We’d left space on the cover hoping that Publishers Weekly would oblige us with a good quote … and they loved the book.
“Jeeves and Wooster meet (or run face-first into) Holmes and Watson with a touch of steampunk in the hilarious first full-length Reeves and Worcester tale … This laugh-out-loud parody works on several levels … With razor-sharp wit and fast pacing that plays fair with the reader, this is an excellent genre mash-up that fires on all cylinders.” – Publishers Weekly

About the book:
Wodehouse steampunk version of The Hound of the Baskervilles!
An escaped cannibal, a family curse … and Reginald Worcester turning up on the doorstep. Could things get any worse for the Baskerville-Smythe family?
As the bodies pile up, only a detective with a rare brain – and Reggie’s is so rare it’s positively endangered – can even hope to solve the case.
But… there is the small matter that most of the guests aren’t who they say they are, the main suspect has cloven feet, and a strange mist hangs over great Grimdark Mire.
Luckily the young master has Reeves, his automaton valet, and Emmeline, his suffragette fiancée, on hand to assist.
This novel is the fifth Reeves & Worcester Steampunk mystery and is set a few months after The Aunt Paradox. The first two stories were published in the ebook, What Ho, Automaton! And the first four stories were published in the trade paperback, What Ho, Automata.
