Gabriel John Utterson and his cousin Richard Enfield reach the door of a large house on their weekly walk. whipped out a key, went in, and presently came back with the matter of ten pounds in gold and a cheque for the balance on Coutts's, drawn payable to bearer and signed with a name that I can't mention , though it's one of the points of my story, but it was a name at least very well known and often printed. It is the mark of a modest man to accept his friendly circle ready-made from the hands of opportunity; and that was the lawyer's way. We told the man we could and would make such a scandal out of this, as should make his name stink from one end of London to the other .

But for all that," continued the lawyer, "there's one point I want to ask: I want to ask the name of that man who walked over the child. The novel can be viewed in relation to the love-hate relationship with his father, whom he depended upon for financial support during his lifelong struggles with severe respiratory illness, which led to drug addiction from his attempts to cope with the illness.Written in just a few days, Robert Louis Stevenson’s novella is a perfect representation of Victorian duality and ambiance, as characters struggle with moral vices and hunt a killer under the oppressive London fog. with what sincere renunciation I locked the door by which I had so often gone and come, and ground the key under my heel! Heavily illustrated with over a hundred and fifty full color images from the history of this cultural touchstone—including reproductions of rare books, film stills, theatrical posters, and the true-life people associated with the adventure—and extensively annotated by Edgar Award winning editor and noted Victorian literature expert Leslie S.
