THE CURIOSITY KILLERS
In the twenty-second century, a second Civil War is decades past. The states of the New British Empire have been reduced to working with Victorian-era technology—that is, except physicist Edward Vere, who invents time travel with a little help from aviation pioneer Wilbur Wright.
Vere partners with historian Ben Jonson to monetize the invention, founding the first time travel agency. Unbeknownst to them, a serial killer is using the technology to murder without detection. When Ben discovers the killer has targeted the woman he loves, the mild-mannered academic must become brave enough to change history rather than merely observing it.
“Taylor’s first foray into science-fiction borrows from her urban fantasy and horror background for a unique spin on the time travel novel. The Curiosity Killers is an exciting adventure set in a beautifully detailed alternate United States with enough serial killers, monsters, and mystery to keep readers on their toes.”
—J.L. Gribble, author of the Steel Empire series
“Wholly original and a hell of a lot of fun!”
—Tim Waggoner, author of the Nekropolis series
“From the moment you read that first paragraph, K.W. Taylor zaps you through time and space and alternate history at a thriller pace with some of the most engaging traveling companions anyone could ask for.”
—Heidi Ruby Miller, award-winning author of the Ambasadora series
