The Alchemy of Murder

(2009)
(The first book in the Nellie Bly series)
A novel by

 

"Meet Nellie Bly, America's first female investigative reporter. She's feisty, funny, opinionated, persistent, and as tough as any male she meets. She has to be, because in The Alchemy of Murder, she's swept through a tale of peril and pursuit that is sure to keep you turning pages long after you should have been asleep. You'll find yourself on the mean streets of nineteenth century New York, in Victorian London and in Paris as the Eiffel Tower rises and deadly things men and microbes stalk the streets. It is a dazzling entertainment, so well constructed and it has Oscar Wilde too!"
William Martin


PARIS 1889. THE WORLD'S FAIR

The Alchemist is how I've come to think of him; he has a passion for the dark side of knowledge, mixing murder and madness with science

Nellie Bly - reporter, feminist and amateur detective - is in Paris on the trail of an enigmatic killer.

The city is a dangerous place: an epidemic of Black Fever rages, anarchists plot to overthrow the government and a murderer preys on the prostitutes who haunt the streets of Montmartre. But it is also a city of culture, a magnet for artists and men of science and letters. Can the combined genius of Oscar Wilde, Jules Verne and Louis Pasteur help Nellie prove a match for Jack the Ripper?
