Summary
In 1889, crusading reporter Nellie Bly sets out to beat the round-the-world record of Phileas Fogg in Jules Verne's novel Around the World in Eighty Days. Two weeks into her trip, Bly is horrified to witness a fatal stabbing in Port Said and hears the dying man's last words. Despite her conviction that the victim was English, her traveling companions insist that she's mistaken. The killing may be connected with an effort to drive the British out of Egypt through acts of terror
