Lawyer Gabriel Utterson hears of an ambiguous, solitary, violent man called Edward Hyde, who is said to have trampled over a young girl in the street, leaving her bruised and terrified. Utterson becomes concerned when a friend of his, Dr Henry Jekyll, makes a will declaring that in the event of his death or disappearance, Hyde should inherit all his property. When Hyde is seen killing a respected political figure, Jekyll becomes increasingly reclusive, which leads Utterson to suspect that there is more than a casual connection between his friend and this brutal 'apelike' monster of a man...

About Robert Louis Stevenson

Born in Edinburgh in 1850 into a family of distinguished designers and engineers, Robert Lewis Balfour Stevenson inherited a love of travel and adventure despite being hindered throughout his life by weak lungs, perhaps tuberculosis. Stevenson studied law at university before pursuing a full-time literary career. He spent much of his life searching for more favourable climes before settling in Samoa with his wife, where he died in 1894.
