About the Book

On October 8, 1871, a fire broke out in a barn on the South Side of Chicago. Over the course of the next three days, the booming industrial metropolis suffered tragedy after tragedy. Thousands of lives were lost, and the windy city itself was left in ruin. But another strange event occurred that first fateful day; the St. Clairs of the Clarion Division arrived from the future.

Now, a year since the catastrophe, River, the district’s coroner, and her brother Archer, the police inspector, are on the hunt for a murderer, a monster. After all, who else would burn a man alive? In Chicago, no less.

Regardless of the horrors the investigation renews, the St. Clairs are duty-bound to seek justice. It’s what they do; that much hasn’t changed. They will find Aubrey Milner’s killer and maybe lay to rest a ghost or two of their own.

About the Author

An ongoing student of the arts and sciences and a long-time information technology professional, Ellison Blackburn has been watchful of the line dividing advancement and humanity for decades. Also the author of numerous novels and short stories in mixed genres—namely historical fiction, mystery and suspense, and science fiction and fantasy—all her stories contain an element of technological improbability made real. As a speculative device, she hopes this invites readers to consider their own view of our progress as a species, the opportunities confronting us each day, and the future we are creating.
