The Alloy Heart
In Victorian London, a mysterious organization known as the Mechanic’s Guild has discovered the secret to create extraordinary engines of war, granting the British Empire unprecedented power. The Guild’s enigmatic founder, Archimedes Tesla, uses this power to become one of the greatest men in the city, creating a kingdom filled with leather, lace, copper, and steel. Meanwhile, two young women are found murdered, each with mechanical hearts implanted in their chests where their natural organs should be. Inspector Thomas Hill, a member of London’s aristocracy, is tasked with finding the killer. Thomas enlists the aid of his childhood friend and now the youngest surgeon in London, Dr. Jackson Elliot, to help him unravel the mystery. Jackson is tragically tormented by his love for Thomas’ sister, Sophia, whose own heart is failing, beyond all medical help. Jackson will do anything in his power to save his precious Sophia. Could finding the killer hold the key to saving the woman he loves?
Great read and, for me at lest, an unexpected ending. Mystery with some love tales. Would love to have a spin off or sequel.

Well written. Did not expect that ending. Enjoyed the twists and turns,
Hauntingly Beautiful Love Story!
A murder mystery that takes place in London, England during Victorian times?!? So totally different from Quinn’s usual style! Quinn and Bo did an excellent job of developing the characters, providing just enough details, and causing you to fall in love with these characters.
There were a few twists that I did not expect! Loved it!
