Mary Jekyll, alone and penniless following her parents' deaths, is curious about the secrets of her father's mysterious past. One clue in particular hints that Edward Hyde, her father's former friend and a murderer, may be nearby, and there is a reward for information leading to his capture...a reward that would solve all of her immediate financial woes. But her hunt leads her to Hyde's daughter, Diana, a feral child left to be raised by nuns.

This story was very entertaining while playing on the literature classics, nice coherent relatable characters. Prior to this I never put much thought into "what if the classic monsters had children?" The writing style was also unique in the way that I felt as if I was listening several people telling a story, with all of the impromptu interruptions and aside dialog.
