This is the life story upon which Robert Louis Stevenson based his novel Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, but life is often stranger than fiction.


For over 20 years Deacon William Brodie lives a strange and secret life, unknown to his friends and associates – even to his wife. At times his duplicity is suspected but proof is elusive. But at last, driven by heavy gambling losses and the urging of his wife to live more lavishly, William Brodie’s daring exploits go astray and his attempts to cheat the gallows provide riveting listening.
