A spellbinding thriller from the bestselling author of The Einstein Prophecy. 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.

“The Jekyll Revelation” has a slow start and the 2 story lines are not intertwined. That is through almost the whole book; tough, in the end they do seem to come together but the way it does feel forced and almost random. I liked the 1880’s story line more but it has it flaws also. Some facts are mixed up and not correct.

But didn’t I like this book?
To be honest I did enjoy this book! The story telling is good, the story itself is OK (just do not take it too serious). The characters are a bit hard to connect to.

My feeling about this book are a bit mixed, on one hand the story and the way it is told is interesting and good to read but on the other hand I had to struggle myself through it. Guess it just isn’t my type of book an then again it is…
