Overview

Magic, mystery, and romance mix in this edgy retelling of the classic The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde in which Dr. Eliza Jekyll is the daughter of the infamous Henry

In an electric-powered Victorian London, Dr. Eliza Jekyll is a crime scene investigator, hunting killers with inventive new technological gadgets. Now, a new killer is splattering London with blood, drugging beautiful women and slicing off their limbs. Catching "the Chopper" could make Eliza's career or get her burned. Because Eliza has a dark secret. A seductive second self, set free by her father's forbidden magical elixir: wild, impulsive Lizzie Hyde.

When the Royal Society sends their enforcer, the mercurial Captain Lafayette, to prove she's a sorceress, Eliza must resist the elixir with all her power. But as the Chopper case draws her into London's luminous, magical underworld, Eliza will need all the help she can get. Even if it means getting close to Lafayette, who harbors an evil curse of his own.

Even if it means risking everything and setting vengeful Lizzie free . . ."

Carr’s steampunk debut is electrifying, memorable, and razor sharp. Eliza Jekyll—daughter of the late Dr. Henry Jekyll, a forensic investigator for the London police—continues her father’s work by battling serial killers and other monsters. No one knows that she hides a monster of her own: Lizzie Hyde, her seductive, wild alter ego, who comes out to play at night. Eliza’s current case has her tracking a murderer who steals body parts, and every avenue of investigation seems to take her into deeper, darker territory. While Lizzie’s influence and desire for freedom grow, Eliza is forced to work with Remy Lafeyette, a member of the Royal Society who could unmask her unnatural state at any time. The shift between Eliza and Lizzie’s narrative voices further amplifies their complex, difficult relationship, and Carr evokes a host of Victorian nightmares—Jack the Ripper, Sweeney Todd, Frankenstein’s monster, and more—as she brings the subtly disturbing setting to life. Agent: Marlene Stringer, Stringer Literary Agency. (Feb.)
