The Diabolical Miss Hyde

Book 1, Electric Empire Novel - An Electric Empire Novel

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


Forensic science, magic, mystery, and romance mix in this edgy steampunk fantasy—a retelling of the horror classic, in which Dr. Eliza Jekyll, daughter of the infamous Dr. Henry Jekyll—pursues a dangerous murderer in an alternate Victorian London.

In an electrified Victorian London, Dr. Eliza Jekyll is a crime scene investigator, hunting killers with newfangled technological gadgets. She will need every advantage available to catch a terrifying new psychopath splattering London with blood. Hidden in the grimy shadows, the fiendish murderer preys on beautiful women, drugging them before slicing off their limbs. Finding the “Slicer” can make Eliza’s career . . . or unmask her darkest secret. Like her father, she has a hidden second self that emerges when she drinks his forbidden magical elixir. Just a few sips, and a seductive and impulsive Lizzie Hyde is unleashed.

The members of the Royal Society do not trust Eliza, and they send their enforcer, the mercurial Captain Lafayette, to prove she’s a dangerous sorceress. The careful doctor knows that one wrong step can make her prey to the clever Lafayette, a man who harbors an evil curse of his own. No matter how much she craves the elixir, she must resist.

But as the Slicer case draws her into London’s luminous magical underworld, Eliza will need the potion’s power to help her . . . even if it might attract the attentions of Lafayette. .

Even if it means setting the wild Lizzie free. . . .

From Publishers Weekly

22 December 2014 – 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.
