EDDIE HYDE lives in today's world. What the poor schnook lacks in brains, he makes up in kindness. Eddie's no saint: he's boosted cars and taken things that don't belong to him, and he's not without talent—it takes skill to pick those locks. But all that is behind him. Since he rolled out of Mansfield Correctional Facility he's kept his nose clean. His goals are simple: go straight and stay straight. Maybe eventually find a girl he can love, marry and raise a family. Not easy with all those temptations dangling in front of him. Besides he's secretly in love with Lucy Gates, his parole officer. Eddie fights off all temptation until Dr. Jake Kell enters Eddie’s life—actually his brain Dr. Jake Kell is the embodiment of everything evil. The battle that ensues: Dr.Jake Kell versus Edward Hyde, would have Robert Louis Stevenson spinning in his grave.
