Publisher Description

Trapped and alone, Jonathan Adams will face an evil he can’t even begin to imagine.

When Collector-for-Hire and occasional police consultant Jonathan Adams arrives at The Franklin Building, he finds scared servants, a concerned constable, and a maid with her head cleaved in two. For lurking in the hallways is a killer not of this world!

“A cleverly constructed, taught thriller with elements seamlessly blending steampunk, horror, detective fiction and sci-fi.” – Amazon reviewer

The Franklin Incident is an exciting short story that starts Philly-Punk, a series of short stories that will leave readers hungry for more. Set in an 1840s Philadelphia still controlled by the British (WTF?), The Franklin Incident—and the series Philly-Punk—puts Steampunk, Mystery, and Horror into a meat grinder to cook up a fine good read! With sharp action, witty reparte, and plenty of thrills, The Franklin Incident gives readers a quick trip into a world they’re going to want to come back again.

“Jonathan Adams is a fantastically written character, harboring the intellect of Sherlock Holmes alongside the bravery of John McClane!” – Pure Awesomosity
