Format: PDF / Kindle (mobi) / ePub
A Steampunk Short Story set in the world of Iron & Blood: A Jake Desmet Adventure.
Department of Supernatural Investigation agents Mitch Storm and Jacob Drangosavich are called in to investigate missing corpses, clockwork zombies and a charlatan doctor with ties to Jack the Ripper before all hell breaks loose.
New Pittsburgh, 1898 – a crucible of invention and intrigue. Born from the ashes of devastating fire, flood and earthquake, the city is ruled by the shadow government of The Oligarchy. In the swarming streets, people of a hundred nations drudge to feed the engines of progress. The Department of Supernatural Investigation was set up to take care of those things that live below, that go bump in the night... those odd cases that go beyond 'standard' investigation. Nicknamed ‘Storm and Fury’, Mitch Storm and Jacob Drangosavich are two of the more creative agents, working in New Pittsburgh and obeying the rules - when they have to.

Jacob observed. “You took your sweet time.” “We ran into complications on the way,” Drostan said, still warily watching the flaming wreckage, his gun fixed on the ruins. “Complications!” Mitch croaked. “I was trapped in an ever-lovin’ coffin and attacked by mad scientists and zombies.” “Stand in line,” Jacob said drily. “We got chased by hell hounds and Dracula’s coachman.” “I know the cops in this part of town,” Drostan said, still keeping a wary eye on the flames. “We’d better be gone when
nodded. “You and me both, Hans. Now get us out of here, before we all end up in the clink. That fire should keep the cops at bay until our boys show up.” “Capital idea, sir.” Mitch stared at the burning remnants of the house on Ridge Avenue. “Do you think they’re dead?” he asked. “Congeliere is.
