Description

A New York Times Editors’ Choice and one of the Washington Post’s 5 Best Thrillers of the Year
 
“[A] knockout debut novel . . . As dark and twisted and alluring as the night-cloaked streets of nineteenth-century London, and this book is as much a fascinating psychological query as it is a gripping narrative.” —Benjamin Percy, author of Red Moon


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 remove, 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; someone has been killed. Who stands watching in the shadows? In the blur of this shared consciousness, can Hyde ever be confident these crimes were not committed by his hand?
 
“A pleasure . . . Rich in gloomy, moody atmosphere (Levine’s London has a brutal steampunk quality), and its narrator’s plight is genuinely poignant.” —New York Times Book Review

From Publishers Weekly

Jan 20, 2014 – Narrated by Dr. Henry Jekyll, Robert Louis Stevenson's classic embodiment of the dark side of the human consciousness, this ambitious first novel provides an alternate perspective on Jekyll's chemical experiments on the split personality. Edward Hyde first emerges independent of Jekyll on the streets of London in 1884 not as the malevolent brute that Stevenson conjured, but as a member of the lower classes who is fiercely protective of his and Hyde's friends and interests. But over the course of two years, Hyde develops a reputation for evil that confounds him and that he suspects is being engineered by Jekyll, whose consciousness lurks inside his own, steering him into certain assignations and possibly committing atrocities while in his form. Levine slowly unfolds the backstory of Jekyll's schemes for Hyde, relating to his earlier failed "treatment" of a patient with a multiple-personality disorder, and traumatic events from Jekyll's own childhood that come to light in the novel's tragic denouement. Levine's evocation of Victorian England is marvelously authentic, and his skill at grounding his narrative in arresting descriptive images is masterful (of the haggard, emotionally troubled Jekyll, he writes, "He looked as if he'd survived an Arctic winter locked within a ship frozen fast in the wastes"). If this exceptional variation on a classic has any drawback, it's that it particularizes to a single character a malaise that Stevenson originally presented belonging universally to the human condition.
