The world’s most famous reporter, the intrepid Nellie Bly, hunts down a murderer in Carol McCleary’s The Formula for Murder.

History, mystery, murder, and mad science accompany plucky Victorian newspaper reporter Nellie Bly when she travels to the haunted moors of England to investigate the mysterious death of another journalist. Her search for the truth takes her from foggy Londontown to the ancient Roman ruins at Bath and the eerie landscape of Dartmoor. Stalked by a killer as she unravels the mystery behind a series of deaths, Nellie encounters a handsome young biology teacher named H. G. Wells, whose knowledge leads Nellie into the realm of science gone mad. Joined by Oscar Wilde, fleeing a sex scandal; and Arthur Conan Doyle, pursuing a legendary beast of the moors, Nellie struggles to stay alive as she hunts down a scientist who is trying to recreate the work of God in a test tube.

What I came to witness in these dark days was men of science crazed by their demented dreams of creating something no other mortal has done.
