Evaline Stoker and Mina Holmes never meant to get into the family business. But when you’re the sister of Bram and the niece of Sherlock, vampire hunting and mystery solving are in your blood. And when two society girls go missing, there’s no one more qualified to investigate. Now fierce Evaline and logical Mina must resolve their rivalry, navigate the advances of not just one but three mysterious gentlemen, and solve murder with only one clue: a strange Egyptian scarab. The stakes are high. If Stoker and Holmes don’t unravel why the belles of London society are in such danger, they’ll become the next victims.

The very rst time I learned what "steampunk" was,I was fascinated and knew I would someday write abook in that genre. It was just a matter of getting the rightstory. And so I just let it perk for a while, because there's onething I've learned after writing more than twenty books: whenthe story's ready to be told, it'll come to me. I've always been a huge fan of Sherlock Holmes. I readmost of the stories when I was in middle and high school, andwhen I learned a movie was being made with Robert Downey, Jr., as Sherlock, I was over the moon. I adored that movie(the second one, not quite as much but I will totally go seethe third!), and seeing it got me to thinking about Sherlockin a steampunk world. In fact, I had several discussions withpeople about whether that movie is steampunk (it's not), butthat got the juices owing and reminded me what a fantasticcharacter Sherlock Holmes is. I loved RDJ's portrayal of himtoo. He nailed it. (And so has Benedict Cumberbatch, in theBBC's
Sherlock 
.) With this on my mind, one day I thought: what wouldSherlock Holmes's daughter be like? Then I immediatelyerased that thought. Sherlock Holmes would never, ever havea daughter.
