Welcome to the world of Steampunk! 
    
    Meet Axel Ferro, an Italian pickpocket living on the streets of London. When he is caught, it seems as though his day can't get any worse. Instead of being carted off to jail or worse, Axel is hired as an assistant to the highly intelligent, but extremely eccentric Detective Conan Hutchingson. 
    
    However, underneath the new success of the growing city of London, lies a strange new villain known only as, the Clockmaker. This villain has put in motion a plot that could mean the end of everything. A plan so complicated it seems impossible to unravel. 
    
    Axel and Hutchingson join forces with the spunky French lady Emeline Cloutier, who is searching for her brother. Together, the trio must cross Europe and track down the elusive Clockmaker in order to prevent the biggest catastrophe from destroying London and the rest of civilization.

WOW!! JUST WOW!! I LOVE THIS SO FAR!! Ok I'm good. So I love how you used someone that use to pickpocket as your main character! Not many people do that. I also love how you gave some information but not a lot. It keeps us on the edge of our seats.

I think you've got a really great setting here.  I really like the feel of your London, and the details you put into this.
Hi i really love this. Steampunk is one of my favorite genres. And it's wonderfully written. And you said 'Consulting Detective' and that reminded me of my favorite television show. You have earned your brownie points.
