Crime writer Ian Rankin investigates The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. Starting with Robert Louis Stevenson's nightmare in September 1885, Rankin traces the roots of this story, which stretches back to Stevenson's childhood. Grave-robbers, hallucinatory drugs and prostitution all play their part in the disturbing account of Henry Jekyll's double-life, as Rankin's journey takes him into the yeasty draughts and unlit closes of the city that inspired the tale - Edinburgh.
A lusty young woman decides to use her sexual powers to "tame" the evil and murderous Dr. Jekyll.
Poe's raven, not feeling well, goes in search of a doctor, and in a nearby book finds Dr. Jekyll. The doctor offers to transfer the bookworm's brain to the raven.
