Master storyteller Robert Louis Stevenson possessed remarkable powers of invention, particularly in the genres of horror and the supernatural. His compelling 1866 novel recounts the experiences of a physician whose well-intentioned experiments result in a drug that transforms him into a remorseless killer. A work of deep psychological perception, Stevenson's morality tale is synonymous with incidents of dual personality, and it continues to intrigue generations of readers. Unabridged republication of a standard edition.
