One death by spontaneous human combustion is a rare act of God. Two... is surely a freakish coincidence. Three... well, that's starting to look deliberate.
Cara has a new role as Queen Victoria's artifact hunter, she's adapting to married life and living in a country manor that more closely resembles a mausoleum. In London, Inspector Fraser investigates a series of strange deaths by divine fire - except he doesn't believe in coincidences. Despite himself, he enlists Cara's help to identify what artifact could cause such a hideous death while his desire to bring her husband to justice burns unabated. Someone's intent on making sure a decades old secret stays hidden and Cara must figure out who is responsible before this case consumes her family and rocks the entire realm to its foundations.

I love this book! It has page turning suspense, intrigue and as always passionate love. The combination of A. W. Exley and Gemma Dawson has produced a book that you can't put down. Fantastic!! I highly recommend this book.
"Nero's Fiddle, a tale of intrigue & excitement!"
A true bibliophile at heart, I love a good story wether told by a wonderful story teller of read from the tactile pages of a good book! The only downfall to E-Lit is that the editing generally is left lacking. There are a few errors in the editing to the E-version here which the oral version does not share, but all-in-all the story itself is a true gem of steampunk fun.
Hmmm .. what I liked best ... ahhh... there is much revealed inside this tale and as to what all it is I will not spoil it for the reader/listener. Suffice it to say that there are many unexpected twists and turns and quite a lot of enlightenment in this 3rd installment of the Artifact Hunters series. I truly love that A.W. Exley will always keep you guessing and Gemma Dawson will always draw you in with her wonderful gift of the telling!
Gemma Dawson simply has a wonderful way of magicking you into the story and holding you enraptured to the very end. She brings the characters and the world to life around her audience. Gemma is a true gem and the listeners are all the richer for the fact we are able to enjoy the gift of her story telling!
There are several moments that really make this story so wonderful but my favorite is a moment between Nan and Nessy. There are a few actually and I will leave it to the audience to pick their own.
I am most certainly looking forward to the 4th and final installment of the Artifact Hunters series, Moseh's Staff, which is rumored to be coming out in April 2015 and I do indeed hope that Gemma Dawson will again be the voice of the story! I am so looking forward to more magical worlds from A.W. Exley in the near future.
