Narrator Roy McMillan takes one of Stevenson's best horror stories and wraps his vocal cords around it with a reedy English accent that brings the dramatic sequences to a stunning conclusion. McMillan ably portrays the two friends who went to medical school together, studying under a doctor of questionable ethics. The duo's meeting, years later, in a bar leads to the story's rising tension and chilling conclusion. McMillan's clipped delivery and perfectly placed emphasis make this trip to the dark side a treat for horror fans and a good introduction for those not familiar with Stevenson's "The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde."

I like these stories - well written is you like historical fiction. The narrationa and audio quality are not good, however and that does take away from it.
"Tense and thrilling"
I really enjoyed this book, specifically "The Bottle Imp" story. I was engaged right to the end of that tale, I can't say I expected that ending though!
