Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde : British lawyer Mr. Utterson had proof. Hyde was a foul, twisted, shrunken creature who had brutally stomped a little girl and beaten an old man to death - for no reason. Hyde left a trail of evil across London; the mere sight of him made strangers violent with fear and disgust . . . But Hyde was Dr. Jekyll's sole heir. And that made no sense at all. Henry Jekyll was the kindest, most civil, most respected man in England. What power could a monster like Hyde hold over Jekyll's soul? Utterson vowed to solve the mystery, and free his friend from Hyde's clutches . . . until his hunt led to a horror beyond blackmail, beyond extortion; to a secret so shocking, so sickening, so personal - that the sheer terror of the truth could drive men mad. . . .
