A chilling curse is transported from 1880s London to present-day California, awakening a long-dormant fiend.
While on routine patrol in the tinder-dry Topanga Canyon, environmental scientist Rafael Salazar expects to find animal poachers, not a dilapidated antique steamer trunk. Inside the peculiar case, he discovers a journal, written by the renowned Robert Louis Stevenson, which divulges ominous particulars about his creation of The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. It also promises to reveal a terrible secret - the identity of Jack the Ripper.
Unfortunately, the journal - whose macabre tale unfolds in an alternating narrative with Rafe's - isn't the only relic in the trunk, and Rafe isn't the only one to purloin a souvenir. A mysterious flask containing the last drops of the grisly potion that inspired Jekyll and Hyde and spawned London's most infamous killer has gone missing. And it has definitely fallen into the wrong hands.

I wasn't expecting much from this book, thinking it would be a schlocky, grocery store paperback. I was pleasantly surprised to find a well written, interesting tale that I actually really enjoyed. The characters were likable and even kind of realistic, and the plot was a lot of fun. I like stories that link past and present events, and the author does that very well, here.
I liked it a lot and I plan on trying other books by the author.

Intermittently reading from my Kindle device, and listening to the synced Audible recording, I quickly became useless in real life - immersed as I was in this story. Crediting both author and performer with my lapse from activity, I'm envious of both. One for concocting the believable and engaging tale and the other for delivering it with such amazing talent as to rival the renown of the story's most celebrated thespian. I will be pursuing both for future, and no doubt, similar and surprisingly entertaining breaks from reality.

Couldn't finish it.....
What would have made The Jekyll Revelation better?
The slowest book ever.....and once it got going (part 2) I'd lost interest....
Would you ever listen to anything by Robert Masello again?
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
I liked the Canadian hero, but the Scottish accent for Stevenson was a bit strange.
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Annoyance, I started to fast forward....
