What do robots, dinosaurs, and zombies have in common? Not much, usually. In this book, however, they actually go together quite well. The story begins when a man comes home for tea quite unexpectedly — 4 days after his funeral! A young pick-pocket, Eddie, sees the man being kidnapped and ends up being brought into the drama along with a museum assistant and a clergyman’s daughter. While the pace was a little slower than some of the other mysteries I’ve read, it certainly had just as many twists and turns! A really enjoyable, if macabre, book.
