The Automatic Woman:

 


Novel Description:

Praise for Automatic Woman:"Steampunk done right. If you want your Sherlock Holmes ala Guy Richie, with the all the grit, cockney, and braggadocio of 19th century that never was, Automatic Woman is the one not to miss." - E. Golosovker

"There are no simple cases. But... there are plenty of simply great books. Automatic Woman happens to be one of them." - Krystal Wade, bestselling author.

About Automatic Woman:

There are no simple cases. Jacob “Jolly” Fellows knows this.

The London of 1888, the London of steam engines, Victorian intrigue, and horseless carriages is not a safe place nor simple place…but it’s his place. Jolly is a thief catcher, a door-crashing thug for the prestigious Bow Street Firm, assigned to track down a life sized automatic ballerina. But when theft turns to murder and murder turns to conspiracy, can Jolly keep his head above water? Can a thief catcher catch a killer?

Automatic Woman is the second novel from award winning screenwriter Nathan L. Yocum. A volatile mix of steampunk, noir, historical fiction, and two-fisted action, Automatic Woman takes us to a place that never was yet we all know so well… the London of Jules Verne, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Jack the Ripper and Bram Stoker with a pneumatic twist


More Praise for Automatic Woman:

"Beautiful is a good word for Automatic Woman. So are incandescent and mesmerizing." - Vicki Keire, bestselling author.
