The Wild American West was a dream and hope for many, but for some it was a place to die. Lucky Tom Turner has finally run out of the good fortune that kept him alive for so long. Rescue the brilliant scientist, elude the New Confederacy, and escape the Prussians determined to torture him for secrets only he has – that’s all his country asked of him. Ghost trains, evil agents, flooded mines, and a gunfight in the streets of Tombstone all await the no-so-lucky Turner. Before “they” can get him, he’ll do right by his country, his honor, and the memory of the woman he cannot have.
The Volcano Lady, Volumes I and II, told only part of Tom Turner’s story. Now The Gaslight Adventures of Tom Turner (in three novellas) reveals the rest of his adventures. Can he escape his past or will he die at the hands of bio-mechanical assassins? Turner dreams of the day he might be reunited with the only woman to capture his heart – Victorian volcanologist Lettie Gantry – if only he can survive again and again, against all chances.
This is T.E. MacArthur’s latest installment from the Volcano Lady universe: an exciting blend of historical fact and steam-powered fiction – plus a healthy dose of Jules Verne himself.
