Review: The Jekyll Revelation by Robert Masello


Publisher: 47 North

Publishing Date:  November 2016

ISBN: 9781503951198

Genre: Fantasy

Rating 1.0/5 DNF

Publishers Description: 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.

Review: I stopped reading this pretty early on when the “deadly Cottonmouth snake” is found in Topanga Canyon, CA. They are only found in the SE United States. I would have stopped later anyway with the constant shifting points of view and lengthy backstory.
