Description

A Wall Street Journal and Booklist Best Mystery of 2012 A Best Science Fiction Book of 2012 -- The Guardian GeekDad 's Best Adult Fiction of 2012 -- Wired.com Finalist for the Los Angeles Times Book Prize and the Arthur C. Clarke Award A rollicking romp of a spy thriller from the acclaimed author of The Gone-Away World . Joe Spork fixes clocks. He has turned his back on his father's legacy as one of London's flashiest and most powerful gangsters and aims to live a quiet life. Edie Banister retired long ago from her career as a British secret agent. She spends her days with a cantankerous old pug for company. That is, until Joe repairs a particularly unusual clockwork mechanism, inadvertently triggering a 1950s doomsday machine. His once-quiet life is suddenly overrun by mad monks who worship John Ruskin, psychopathic serial killers, mad geniuses and dastardly villains. On the upside, he catches the eye of bright and brassy Polly, a woman with enough smarts to get anyone out of a sticky situation. In order to save the world and defeat the nefarious forces threatening it, Joe must help Edie complete a mission she abandoned years ago, and he must summon the courage to pick up his father's old gun and join the fight.
