‘Doktor Glass’ by Thomas Brennan

For a truly interesting and ‘fresh’ afternoon, this book is it. Taking place in the late 19th Century, readers are introduced to the greatest DoktorGlassfeat of engineering ever created – The Transatlantic Span. This incredible invention is an actual bridge that is built across the Atlantic Ocean linking England with New York City. Apparently it is time to inaugurate the Queen, yet this ‘wonder of the world’ is towering over the city of Liverpool and the building crews are running all over the place in order to finish the bridge in time for the Queen to dedicate it.

Switching gears…Inspector Matthew Langton is very broken up over the death of his wife Sarah and is trying his best to get back on the horse with a new case that could possibly distract him from his heartbreaking mourning; not to mention, try to get back into the Chief’s good graces. Matthew is soon assigned a case of murder on the docks, and the victim turns out to be a ‘Boer Irregular’ who’d just obtained a job working on the new bridge.

Langton had served in the Boer War and witnessed the horror there; he‘s now afraid that there might be a conspiracy afoot to kill the Queen or damage the bridge. Dead bodies begin to increase as the main suspect turns out to be one, Doktor Glass, who soon becomes the center of the plot and may also have somehow been involved in Sarah’s death.

Wild ideas, massive imagination – this book certainly provides a story that has never been told. The Transatlantic Span is beyond futuristic, but there are other more…monumental pieces of the good, old paranormal in this book that will certainly keep readers on their toes. No question about it, this narrative will definitely grab and hold all mystery and fantasy readers attention ‘spans’ without any problem at all!
