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 . . .

Inspired by Robert Louis Stevenson's classic novel, this series opener introduces Eliza, daughter of the infamous Henry Jekyll. Like her father, Eliza is a doctor -- though unlike her murderous parent, she works for the police as a crime scene investigator. She's also got an alter ego: the impulsive Lizzie Hyde. As if chasing down serial killers weren't enough of a challenge, Eliza must also protect Lizzie (and herself) from Captain Remy Lafayette of the Royal Society, which distinguishes between science (the law of the realm) and sorcery (punishable by death). If you enjoy The Diabolical Miss Hyde, don't miss its sequel, The Devious Dr. Jekyll.
