1887: The streets of Edinburgh seethe with anarchy as two gangs of students rival each other in wild exploits. After a pitched battle between them, an old woman is found savagely battered to death in Leith Harbour. Enter the Thieftaker - Inspector James McLevy. Robert Louis Stevenson, author of THE STRANGE CASE OF DR JEKYLL AND MR HYDE, is in the city to bury his deceased father, and the two recognise each other as observers of the dark side of human nature and hopeless insomniacs. But glimpses of the murderer indicate a slender figure with a silver cane - a dancing killer not unlike Mr Edward Hyde. Is it just a coincidence that Mr Stevenson is back in town?
