'Captain Nemo meets Tuesday Next in the Aegean in 1875. Except that Captain Horatio Anson de la Terre, Royal Navy, isn’t exactly Captain Nemo, because it’s the Sisters Makiniri who have invented the submarine, not him. He just wants to sink the thing. Reddon, the spy, isn’t exactly James Bond either, despite his dinner jacket and diving suit. And, oh dear, the Russians are coming.
A little bit steampunk, a little bit Pratchett, a whole lot hilarious.' (Publication summary)
