EVIL WAS SO SURE TO COME
A middle-aged neuroscientist’s career is in the doldrums when he stumbles upon a notebook written by his ancestor, Dr Henry Jekyll, over a century ago. Working alone and late at night, he strives to recreate his forefather’s discovery.
In the weeks that follow, a wave of murders breaks across London. Metropolitan Police officers race to trace the killer. But as the net closes on a young man with mental health problems, one driven detective begins to have her doubts. Can she catch the real killer, before he commits his most heinous act of all?
Released to commemorate the 135th anniversary of the publication of Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic, The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

What Inspired You to Write Your Book?
I've always loved gothic horror, and the Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde is one of my favourite books. It’s a wellspring of psychological horror that must have been incredibly shocking in its day. I started to wonder what would happen if similar events played out today. The book grew into a mash-up of gothic horror and police procedural. It was a blast to write and is hopefully just as enjoyable to read.
How Did You Come up With Your Characters?
Some of the characters – Newcomen, Lanyon and of course Jekyll – are descendants of characters in the original, but they are no mere clones. Several of the scientists and doctors were inspired by people I have met at work. The detectives were inspired by conversations with a friend who works as a detective for Thames Valley police, which hopefully lends the police scenes a grittily realistic air.
