The Broken Sun: A Steampunk Detective Novel featuring Jack Mason by Darrell Pitt

When The Broken Sun, an ancient artefact said to lead to the lost city of Atlantis, is stolen from the British Museum, Jack, Scarlet and Mr Doyle embark on a hunt across Europe to find it.

But just as the artefact is within reach, their beloved secretary is mysteriously poisoned.

In their race against time to find the antidote, the team uncovers a deadly plan, to attack the Houses of Parliament.

Though no one has banked on another shocking discovery - that Mr Doyle's long-dead son may still be alive...

Darrell Pitt began his lifelong appreciation of Victorian literature when he read the Sherlock Holmes stories as a child, quickly moving on to H.G. Wells and Jules Verne. This early reading led to a love of comics, science fiction and all things geeky. Darrell is now married with one daughter. He lives in Melbourne. There are three Jack Mason Adventures to date: The Firebird Mystery, The Secret Abyss and The Broken Sun.

Praise for the Jack Mason Adventures:

'Lots of mechanical mayhem and derring-do - breathless stuff.' Michael Pryor

'Non-stop action, non-stop adventure, non-stop fun!' Richard Harland

'Set in a fantastical London, filled with airships, steam cars and metrotowers stretching into space, this fast paced adventure and homage to the world of Victoria literature and Conan Doyle offers an enjoyable roller-coaster read for fans of Artemis Fowl and the Lemony Snicket series...[a] rollicking who-dunnit that will keep young Sherlocks guessing to the very end.' Magpies
