"Sybil Gerard"--a fallen woman, politician's tart, daughter of a Luddite agitator
"Edward "Leviathan" Mallory"--explorer and paleontologist
"Laurence Oliphant"--diplomat, mystic, and spy.
Their adventure begins with the discovery of a box of punched Engine cards of unknown origin and purpose. Cards someone wants badly enough to kill for....
