Reviewed in the United States on

"The novel is stunning in its depth, amassing a large cast of characters that come from all walks of life and that really give the reader a true glimpse into the "Railway" era...  Mr. Mckee has a talent for storytelling that uses history as the backdrop and builds off of this truly lively era to weave a fantastic story.

"McKee masterly handles mood and tone, not to mention plot twists and turns. The cover, designed by the author, neatly captures the book’s otherworldly photographic sense."
