Author Eamonn Griffin sets a scene of late Edwardian cosiness, with plenty of tea and meetings in gentlemen's clubs, and then blows it all apart with a hideous conspiracy that begins with the reading of an impossible will. The books's hero, Dr Latimer, is determined to unravel the mystery, and finds himself racing around 1911 London, gun in hand, in search of the mysterious Juggernaut. In the process, the reader discovers that Dr Jekyll was not the only one to have an alter ego, and even Latimer himself undergoes a transformation or two that left me keen for a sequel.

    I’ve reviewed author Eamonn Martin Griffin before and love his work so when he contacted me to say a new book was out I jumped at the chance to read it. Now two things stood out. Firstly the cover.. Damn that’s a nice cover! I would have bought this book based on that alone. Secondly Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde has to be my favourite classic horror tale. I loved it as a kid and still do now. If you've not read The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde then fear not.. now is the time as that tale is incl I’ve reviewed author Eamonn Martin Griffin before and love his work so when he contacted me to say a new book was out I jumped at the chance to read it. Now two things stood out. Firstly the cover.. Damn that’s a nice cover! I would have bought this book based on that alone. Secondly Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde has to be my favourite classic horror tale. I loved it as a kid and still do now. If you've not read The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde then fear not.. now is the time as that tale is included. What happened if someone else found out about Jekyll’s work? 20 years later Hyde’s will shows up, why now? Well I’m not going to spoil it for you, you'll need to read Juggernaut! Okay..maybe one little tit bit..lets just say Jekyll and Hyde's legacy certainly isnt gone..but just who is behind things and what does Juggernaut stand for.. read and see :) So what does Griffin bring to the tale? To start with he gets the flow of the book spot on and the two books work perfectly. He brings the language up to date but at the same time it really does feel like the stories fit together. If you liked the suspense of Stevenson’s work you’ll love Juggernaut as Griffin keeps this style of tale going strong right until the end when the pieces of the puzzle are put together. It takes a brave man to write a sequel to such an established book but Griffin did a brilliant job for me and I think it will help boost his reputation as an author but also open up the world of Stevenson to a new generation of youngsters who might have been put off by the language used by Stevenson. For me this was an exciting read.. not only is it a brilliant piece of storytelling in itself but it breathes life into one of my favourite books. I do think Stevenson would enjoy Griffins sequel and I hope you do too. Griffin has a talent from writing and this books just cements how good he is.

    This is a well-done sequel to The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde, preserving a lot of the atmosphere of the original, but adding a fresh element. There are a couple of places where I didn't quite buy a plot twist, but otherwise it is well done. I didn't love it though: the horror element was a bit too much for my taste. I prefer things to be a bit more implied rather than set out in gory detail.
