This was a fun short story but nothing really too outstanding. The setting was interesting and the characters were likable, however I thought the plot was pretty predictable. Even the 'twist' at the end was something that I feel is pretty standard for these types of stories. I wish this would have been a longer book so we could get some more background on the world [steampunk version of Paris] and also on this 'plague' that is affecting people. The story is written as if the reader is from the world where it takes place so the narrator keeps saying things like 'but of course you know what happened' and I'm just like mmm, I don't though. Still, I did find Driscoll to be a very entertaining protagonist and it was a fun way to spend an hour or so.
The author really pulls together a cohesive world without delving into needlessly complicated exposition. You constantly know the tone of the world from the detail provided, and can therefore extrapolate from what you have to imagine the rest. Even with the setting only taking place in Britain and France, I am fascinated to know what Omichinski's vision of the United States or China would be in this world he has created.
If you are looking to kill a Saturday, this is the type of book you read in one sitting and then desperately hope for a sequel. Looking forward to more adventures from these characters.
