The Sky’s the Limit, the 33rd Master Mystery Production, is a sky-hopping steampunk adventure aboard an airship carrying two American reporters across the Atlantic Ocean, only for the ladies to discover they have been kidnapped by their eccentric pilot and his many marvelous, maniacal machines…
Flying high above the Atlantic Ocean, the fantastical airship, Vesper, sails the skies with two reporters embarking on the adventure of a lifetime. Charlotte Collins and her rival wordsmith Louisa Cahill have both been sponsored by their newspapers to try and beat the Jules Verne Standard by circling around the world in less than eighty days. The accolades that awaits the woman who beats the record (and outraces her rival) will be legion. But just when the race is at its fiercest and both Charlotte and Louisa miss a critical travel connection, the two ladies independently accept the help of the quirky Sir Hugo Featherton for a ride in his self-designed steampunk airship across the Atlantic. However, not long after take-off, the veteran reporters sense something amiss. Why does Sir Hugo know so much about their travels and itineraries? Why is the ship they were supposed to take still in the harbor? Why won’t their editors respond to their urgent questions? Charlotte and Louisa will have to join forces and unite their individual talents to tackle a mystery in the clouds with big secrets, big money, and bigger risks. The sky’s the limit when it comes to what people are capable of, but our intrepid leading ladies will discover just how far some are willing to go to keep their secrets locked up tight.
