If you're head of the Wildenstern clan, you can expect someone'll try to kill you at some point or another. And usually when someone does, it's a member of your own family. But, right now Berto Wildenstern, and his brother Nate, have more pressing matters on their minds . . . local women seem to be spontaneously combusting and no one's quite sure why! Wild mechanical creatures, explosions, deceptions, twists and turns with a host of fantastic otherworldly characters - imagine The Godfather meets Philip Reeve and you have Wisdom of Dead Men.
