The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is the ultimate study of man's psyche and the terrifying realms of human impulse. A nineteenth-century classic, it is suspenseful storytelling at its best, and perfectly realised in this unabridged recording. Dr Jekyll's creation of a dangerous alter ego, with the intention of freeing himself from his own conscience, continues to compel readers to this day. As our narrator, Mr Utterson, seeks the truth about the mysterious Hyde, Jekyll's fervent desire to purge his soul of evil and his inability to control his counterpart comes to an unforgettable climax. Haunting and thrilling, this atmospheric fable is one of the world's greatest short stories. It is twinned here with Markheim, an earlier tale of second-selves, conscience and the struggle between good and evil.
