The Clockwork Scarab is a wonderful mystery that includes Egyptology, time travel, secret societies, and vampire hunters. Reluctantly at first, Mina Holmes, the teenage niece of Sherlock Holmes, and Evaline Stoker, the teenage sister of Bram Stoker, combine their sleuthing and hand-to-hand combat talents to find out why society girls are turning up dead. The young ladies infiltrate opium dens, pubs, society balls, and seedy criminal lairs in pursuit of the mystery of the missing girls.  This is the first book in the Stoker & Holmes series, set in Victorian London with a steampunk twist. If you enjoy Clockwork Scarab, be sure to check out book two in the series, Spiritglass Charade.
