Hyde

(2014)
A novel by

 
 
"An ingenious revision" of Robert Louis Stevenson's classic Gothic story told through the eyes of the fiend (The New York Times Book Review).

Mr. Hyde is trapped, locked in Dr. Jekyll's house, certain of his inevitable capture. As the dreadful hours pass, he has the chance, finally, to tell his side of the story - one of buried dreams and dark lusts, both liberating and obscured in the gaslit fog of Victorian London's sordid backstreets.

Summoned to life by strange potions, Hyde knows not when or how long he will have control of "the body." When dormant, he watches Dr. Jekyll from a distance, conscious of this other, high-class life but without influence. As the experiment continues, their mutual existence is threatened, not only by the uncertainties of untested science, but also by a mysterious stalker. Hyde is being taunted - possibly framed. Girls have gone missing; a murder has been committed. And someone is always watching from the shadows. In the blur of this shared consciousness, can Hyde ever truly know if these crimes were committed by his hands?

Narrated by Hyde, this serpentine tale about the nature of evil, addiction, and the duality of man "delivers a new look at this enigmatic character and intriguing possible explanations for Jekyll's behavior" (The Washington Post, Five Best Thrillers of 2014).

"Hyde brings into the light the various horrors still hidden in the dark heart of Stevenson's classic tale . . . a blazing triumph of the gothic imagination." - Patrick McGrath, author of Asylum

"Earthy, lurid, and unsparing . . . a worthy companion to its predecessor. It's rich in gloomy, moody atmosphere (Levine's London has a brutal steampunk quality), and its narrator's plight is genuinely poignant." - The New York Times Book Review, Editors' Choice

Praise for this book

"As dark and twisted and alluring as the night-cloaked streets of nineteenth-century London, this book is as mush a fascinating psychology query as it is a gripping narrative." - Benjamin Percy
