There are no simple cases. Jacob “Jolly” Fellows knows this.

The London of 1888, the London of steam engines, Victorian intrigue, and horseless carriages is not a safe place nor simple place…but it’s his place. Jolly is a thief catcher, a door-crashing thug for the prestigious Bow Street Firm, assigned to track down a life sized automatic ballerina. But when theft turns to murder and murder turns to conspiracy, can Jolly keep his head above water? Can a thief catcher catch a killer?

Automatic Woman is the second novel from award winning screenwriter Nathan L. Yocum. A volatile mix of steampunk, noir, historical fiction, and two-fisted action, Automatic Woman takes us to a place that never was yet we all know so well… the London of Jules Verne, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle, Jack the Ripper and Bram Stoker with a pneumatic twist.


The Automatic Woman by Nathan Yocum is a fascinating read, taking the reader into a world of well known historical figures of science, twisting historical possibilities which lead into an imaginative tale of a power struggle between two very well known characters from our past.

The main character Jacob Fellows, an investigator for a private service, back in olde England, becomes hunted by police and the special secret service he works for, when he is found in extenuating circumstances at a murder scene of the man, who owned a 'special' automated woman, when his firm had hired him to investigate her theft.

The story becomes a power struggle between two well known influential parties from history, as they compete to learn the secrets of the missing automatic woman. The meat in the sandwich, stuck in the middle of these two waring parties is Jacob Fellows, who just happens to be strong enough physically and mentally, not to be completely manipulated or corrupted by their will.

Set in olde England, this interesting and quite original steam punk novel is a fascinating read. The reader is swept into the bygone, imaginative era of olde England, when the development of science and machine was paramount in gaining knowledge, prestige, power and wealth.

That does sound like a very cool novel. I haven't read much Steampunk, but it seems like a genre I'd very much enjoy.

I love the idea for your A to Z theme. Looking forward to the rest of the month!!

I've never read Steampunk!
To be honest, I don't really know what the genre is all about... I've only heard about it...

That is a beautiful cover and the story sounds interesting. I've never read Steampunk before (no idea why either) so this may have to be my foray into it.
