PNEUMATIC CASES #1-3 is the latest offering from Last Ember Press featuring the penultimate issue of the Steampunk Murder Mystery Series!
Lord and Lady Ravenscroft are scientists and inventors who solve crimes as a side hustle. When a violent murder is laid out on the streets of London for all to see, the pair are called in to consult in classic Holmesian fashion.
The clues they find take them on a journey across Europe fighting reanimated men and other nefarious criminals while making enemies along the way. Now, their quest has landed them in Romania where violent animal attacks are anything but. How this ties into the larger mystery at hand is what Percy and Annie must discover or die trying!
After funding in 48 Hours, ISSUE 4 is now being unlocked via Stretch Goals!
