Nikola Tesla and H.P. Lovecraft have broken into Athenaeum Library and have discovered there were others already there. Cthulhu cultists looking for an original Necronomicon. The cultists want to know why they are there and why it seems Lovecraft knows so much.
I love a good capture and escape type of story. This is exactly that and I especially love it when science and a bit of creative trickery is used. Lovecraft being questioned while Tesla, with one hand badly damaged, is attending to the wound of the professor who was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Unfortunately for the cultists, Tesla was locked in a room full of chemicals and, well, you're going to have to read the book to see what he did.
If you're having difficulty finding the first three books of this series, they are also collected in a trade paperback. You can pick it up for $11.99 or do what I did, and check your local library. Just watch out for Cthulhu cultists!
