A faceless corpse lies on the recently completed Transatlantic Span, the vast suspension bridge that connects Liverpool and New York City. Assigned to the case is newly widowed police Inspector Matthew Langton. The investigation quickly takes a turn for the supernatural, bringing Langton into the orbit of a gang of soul-stealers known as Jar Boys and their shadowy patron, Doktor Glass, who may be connected to the body on the bridge, as well as the death of Langton's own wife. Steampunk fans who enjoy a good police procedural should enjoy this alternate world, Victorian-themed whodunit.
