Dr. Nathaniel Smythe, doctor of psychology and engineering. Philanthropist and investor. Grandson of one of the town's founders, and confirmed bachelor. General Franklin F. Fremont, retired general of the Army. Explorer and big game hunter. The two men, stalwart friends in a small industrial town on the banks of the Susquehanna River where nothing changes and excitement is discouraged. On the surface, anyway.
But there is something rippling beneath the sleepy town's gentle facade. It's been there for as long as anyone can remember. No one talks about it, not even in subdued whispers, but it touches the lives of every resident - including the two friends. And when Dr. Smythe reveals one of his secret inventions to a bored General Fremont, Hell breaks loose in the form of a demon from another dimension. The two are forced to hunt the creature before it can wreak havoc on the town they both love.
It won't be as easy as they think. The doorway they open is but the beginning, and even more horrors wait for them and the rest of the town.
This is life on the river. This is life for residents who will do anything to achieve their goals. If the town accepts you, it will give you anything you can dream. Even if the dream is a nightmare. Welcome to Milltown.
Take the crew of Serenity, put them on the Waverider from Legends of Tomorrow, and have them do a job from Leverage.
The Milan Job: A Time Travel Steampunk Adventure
(The Williams Hunt Book 1)
Meet Captain Alexandria de Sade, the proud and once loyal captain of Naviwerks chrono-ship #25. When she learned the truth about how the company was fleecing their customers she turned her back on the promotion they offered her, left the man she loved without a word, and disappeared with her ship.
With a plan in mind to undermine Naviwerks’ business of artifact and heirloom retrieval, Captain Alex hired on several like-minded misfits to crew her chrono-ship which she re-christened The William’s Hunt. They are: An awkward but genius Horotech, an irascible ex-marine, a flamboyant playboy, a churlish physician, and a hot-shot pilot.
Their first venture: go to Milan, Italy 1490 and retrieve the working model of Leonardo da Vinci’s Gran Cavallo before Naviwerks does. What should have been a simple snatch and run mission for the newly formed band of pirates goes south nearly immediately. In their struggle to recover, they learn that there is much more behind Naviwerks’ actions. Captain Alex and the crew of The William’s Hunt are the only ones that stand a chance of putting things right,and it seems as if her crew’s every step takes them deeper and deeper into discovering just how nefarious Naviwerks truly is.
