What would you do to save your daughter from herself?


Mark Heckle, a lawyer, is desperately concerned that his daughter Eva is in danger. When a peculiar accident happens near his daughter's home, he meets John Freid, who reeks of evil. Heckle sets out to discover who Freid is and what his hold over his daughter is, in a stunning suspenseful adventure which will have you gripped until you find out the truth behind the mystery.

Inspired by the Robert Louis Stevenson classic 'Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde'.

‘I found this book absolutely thrilling and couldn't put it down until I'd finished it. Convincing characters and an exciting plot.’ M. Mcalister

5.0 out of 5 stars A stunning read - inspired! 2 Dec 2012
By Jak
Format:Kindle Edition
I had to finish this book to find out what was going on, all the while with the nostalgic feeling that I should be able to figure out what would happen. But it's been so long since I read "Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde," from which this book draws inspiration -- and "inspired isn't a bad word for it -- that I just had to keep reading. And anyway, it isn't the Robert Louis Stevenson book in modern dress, but very much its own creature (pun intended). The main character of the lawyer worried about his daughter is very credible and engaging. And the mystery is brilliantly built up. A scary and exciting thriller with lots of good background detail of London. Don't miss it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining 2 Dec 2012
By bsms585
Format:Kindle Edition
A very readable novel centred around a doctor who has lost his mind and also featuring a dermatologist. Well-drawn characters, an interesting plot and a worthwhile déouement all make for very good read.

3.0 out of 5 stars Heckle
A bit predictable. I like a story with twists and turns but I actually fathomed out what was going on quite early on. It was also quite a short book.

This story started off quite well. Only to disolve into the biggest load of rubbish I have read in a long time!

You wont be disappointed with this one, and without giving anything away you wouldn't have worked the story out. It is not until near the end that everything becomes clear. Read more
