The intrepid Nellie Bly--Victorian Age detective, reporter, and feminist--embarks on an adventure that will test her courage and determine the fate of nations...

Jules Verne challenges Nellie to travel around the world in less than the eighty days it took his fictional hero. Nellie knows she has what it takes, even if her publisher, Joseph Pulitzer, thinks the journey is far too dangerous for any woman to attempt.

But when Nellie witnesses a tragic murder and is drawn into a mystifying web of international intrigue, she realizes that she may indeed be in over her head. As Nellie sails from the Land of the Pharaohs to the exotic Orient and across the Pacific, a killer follows. It will take every ounce of Nellie Bly's charm and boundless determination to circumnavigate the globe, find a murderer, and stay alive.

Love this series. Can't wait for another installment.

Explicit descriptions of neither sex nor deaths of criminals are necessary to the story, and ruined what otherwise was a convoluted mystery.
