"And They Called Her Spider" - Steampunk Mystery Novelette

A brilliant but awkward inventor uses his gadgets and the wits of his socially adept partner to scour steampunk London for an impossible assassin before she can murder Queen Victoria on hte eve of her Platinum Jubilee.

Quote:
"She moves, at times, with the fluid grace particular to acrobats and dancers, and at others her motions are sudden and jerky, feral and darting. A sudden tilt of the head, an abrupt twist of the spine, and that's all the warning you get before she changes, switching from entertainer to killer, from elegant to lethal. My pet theory is that when she becomes the perfect assassin she gains a new awareness of time and kinetics, her movements so graceful and quick that the human mind can only process them in sudden still images, like the frames of a camera obscura. My words can barely suffice to convey the purity of her motion. I have to think of her in alchemical terms. She's quicksilver."
James was a socially awkward but brilliant inventor, while his partner Bartleby was a deductive genius and intuitive savant. Together the consulting detectives have been hired to scour steampunk London for the Spider, an impossible killer targeting only the most well-protected of targets. It's up to them to stop her before she can assassinate Queen Victoria at the pinnacle of her Platinum Jubilee.
