Imagine that the next book you read will steal your mind. You will become a puppet of a secret society that is about to seize the British Empire. You and millions of others have only one hope: the courage of a roguish gentleman adventurer known as the 'policeman of secrets'.
In a vivid world of steampunk and sensuality, the psychopathic members of the Arcanum plot to overpower whole countries - but they can only succeed by defeating the irrepressible Count Balthazar, a master at stealing and protecting secrets.
He launches into an adventure involving rooftop chases, hijacked airships, a giant train, an unusual mechanical circus, and surprise twists and betrayals. To survive, he must overcome the beautiful and deadly Elizabeta. Driven by violence and lust, she has ambitions of her own that will surprise everybody.
Filled with colorful characters thrown together in a life and death struggle, 'The Policeman of Secrets' is a romp that races from a backstreet bookshop and secret lairs to a strange gentlemen's club and a battle in a royal palace. Along the way it gives Victorian history a refreshing, erotic, and steam-powered spin.
