Hardcore adventurer Sir Algernon Hogshead takes down badass steampunks in Victorian London. But the case of a lifetime might just ruin his winning streak and his life. When his wife starts keeping mysterious secrets and bad company, Sir Hogshead craves a peek behind the velvet curtain. But he can't possibly break through the world of women...or can he? Sparks fly when this manliest man crosses the line and takes on the undercover assignment he never imagined. Will a dress and corset enable a pulp action hero to blow the lid off a female threat without blowing his cover? Or will the terrible truth behind his wife's betrayal mean a horrifying ordeal for the man behind the disguise? Sometimes, the most awful surprises can lurk behind the most ridiculous outfits. Welcome to the latest shocker from Robert Jeschonek, a master of twisted steampunk from the outer reaches of the imagination.
