Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde

by Robert Louis Stevenson

Here are four frightening and suspenseful tales of human greed, evil tendencies, and sorrow, including Stevenson's classic chiller about the darker side of the human personality: Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, with an introduction from best-selling author Garth Nix.

Respectable citizen by day...killer by night? This is Robert Louis Stevenson's harrowing tale of good and evil caught in the same person — a kind and well-respected doctor who has discovered a powerful and deadly drug.
