Cover Wonderment: Lady Law

Doesn't this cover look awesome? For only $3.19 on Amazon for the Kindle, I'm seriously considering picking up The Mysterious Lady Law! Has anyone tried it?
Goodreads blurb: "In a time of grand airships and steam-powered cars, the death of a penniless young maid will hardly make the front page. But part-time airship waitress and music hall dancer Julia Bairstow is shattered by her sister's murder. When Lady Law, the most notorious private detective in Britain, offers to investigate the case pro bono, Julia jumps at the chance-even against the advice of Constable Al Grant, who takes her protection surprisingly to heart.

Lady Law puts Scotland Yard to shame. She's apprehended Jack the Ripper and solved countless other cold-case crimes. But is she really what she claims to be-a genius at deducting? Or is Al right and she is not be trusted? Julia is determined to find out the truth, even if it means turning sleuth herself and turning the tables on Lady Law."
