1881—Special Agent Gillian Hamilton is a magic caster with the Federal Bureau of Magic and Steam. He’s sent to Shallow Grave, Arizona, to arrest a madman engineer known as Tinkerer, who’s responsible for blowing up half of Baltimore. Gillian has handled some of the worst criminals in the Bureau’s history, so this assignment shouldn’t be a problem. But even he’s taken aback by a run-in with the country’s most infamous outlaw, Gunner the Deadly.

Gunner is also stalking Shallow Grave in search of Tinkerer, who will stop at nothing to take control of the town’s silver mines. Neither Gillian nor Gunner are willing to let Tinkerer hurt more innocent people, so they agree to a very temporary partnership.

If facing illegal magic, Gatling gun contraptions, and a wild engineer in America’s frontier wasn’t enough trouble for a city boy, Gillian must also come to terms with the reality that he’s rather fond of his partner. But even if they live through this adventure, Gillian fears there’s no chance for love between a special agent and outlaw.



"He [Declan Winters] did a great job with the story and with Gillian, Gunner, and the nefarious Tinkerer. Highly recommendable!" - Bayou Book Junkie

"Add to that the outstanding narrative with a great mix of voices, and this is definitely an audiobook I recommend." - Rainbow Book Reviews

"Declan Winters narrates the audiobook of The Engineer.  He is a new-to-me narrator, and based on this first listen, I’m impressed with his skill." - Love Bytes Reviews
