Infernal Devices by K.W. Jeter

HE INHERITED A WATCHMAKER'S STORE - AND A WHOLE HEAP OF TROUBLE. But idle sometime-musician George has little talent for clockwork. And when a shadowy figure tries to steal an old device from the premises, George finds himself embroiled in a mystery of time travel, music and sexual intrigue. A genuine lost classic, a steampunk original whose time has come. From Goodreads.

This is a classic steampunk and the author K.W. Jeter is supposed to be the one who came up with the genre steampunk. This unfortunately doesn't mean it is a great book.
I have read other steampunk books and this book of course has all the elements of that genre being one of the originals but to me it was boring.
