I love, love, love this series! Robert MacCammon's best work, although Swan Song and Boy's Life are pretty durn awesome, too.
This book started out a bit slow for me.
Spoiler alert: But once the story reached Pendulum Island, I
gobbled this book up like nobody's business. Can't wait for the next installment in this wonderful historical mystery series that reminds me of a young Sherlock Holmes set in colonial America.
