Dr. Eliza Jekyll, heroine of the electrifying The Diabolical
Miss Hyde—an edgy steampunk retelling of the classic Dr.
Jekyll and Mr. Hyde—investigates a bizarre murder case in an
alternate Victorian London while battling her treacherous
secret half: Lizzie Hyde.
Solving the infamous Chopper case has helped crime scene
physician Dr. Eliza Jekyll establish her fledgling career in
the chauvinistic world of Victorian law enforcement. But the
scrutiny that comes with her newfound fame is unwelcome for
a woman with a diabolical secret. And there is the mercurial
Royal Society agent and wolf man Remy Lafayette. Does he
want to marry her, eat her, or burn her at the stake? Though
Eliza is uncertain about Remy, her dark and jealous shadow
self, Lizzie, wants to steal the magnetic and persistent
agent, and usurp Eliza’s life.
It’s impossible to push Remy away when he tempts her with
the one thing she can’t resist: a bizarre crime. The search
for a bloodthirsty ritual torturer dubbed the Pentacle
Killer draws them into a terrifying world of spies, art
thieves, and evil alchemy, where the price of immortality is
madness—or damnation—and only Lizzie’s dark ingenuity can
help Eliza survive.
As Eliza and Remy race to thwart a foul conspiracy involving
the sorcerous French, they must also overcome a sinister
enemy who is all too close: the vengeful Lizzie, determined
to dispose of Eliza for good.
