In seeking to discover his inner self, the brilliant Dr Henry lekyll discovers a monster. First published to immediate acclaim in 1886, this mesmerising thriller is a terrifying study of the duality of man's nature, and it is the book which established Stevenson`s reputuation as a writer.

"The Merry Men" is a gripping Highland tale of shipwrecks and madness; "Markheim", the sinister study of the mind of a murderer; "Thrawn Janet", a spine-chilling tale of demonic possession; "Olalla", a study of degeneration and incipient vampirism in the Spanish mountains; "Will O' the Mill", a thought-provoking fable about a mountain inn-keeper; and "The Treasure of Franchard", a study of French bourgeois life.
