Axel's day goes from terrible to strange when he is hired by the highly intelligent, but eccentric Detective Conan Hutchingson. Before Axel can adjust to his new life, he is thrown into the middle of a complicated mystery. There is a new threat that has been growing underneath the shining streets of London. A villain that is only known as the Clockmaker has put in motion a plot that could mean the very end of everything. 

Axel and Hutchingson join forces with Emeline Cloutier, a young lady who is looking for her missing brother. Together the trio must cross Europe, face down pirates, and evade arrest. The clock is ticking as they get closer to the mystery of the elusive Clockmaker. 

Can they unravel the Clockmaker's plot before London is destroyed?

Nice chapter. I can sense an intriguing plot developing through this first chapter. Where is her brother? Also, great taser umbrella! It added a twist ending. Good job!

That is certainly out of the blue! Events seem to move rather quickly so far; I have barely adjusted to one scene before we've already moved on! Perhaps the pacing needs some more work.

Maybe this is just me, but I don't think this is the smoothest way to start a chapter. Something about this paragraph feels rushed, like we're skipping something essential. But it is worded beautifully, so points for that ^^

Haha! This is actually a smooth way of putting a sneaky crime.
