Many years ago, on a dark and stormy night, the disfigured and enigmatic Doctor John Smith invited his closest friends, Inspector Victor Schaeffer and his wife, Jacqueline, to a dinner to celebrate his birthday. A few hours later all the occupants in that house had been changed. ­Some were dead, and others were mentally scarred forever. So what happened to the distinguished dinner guests on that evening? Perhaps, we’ll never know. But two clues have led to much speculation, found outside the study window: a charred umbrella with a curved red handle and, found inside the house, a blood-stained copy of Stevenson’s The Strange Case of Dr Jekyll and Mr Hyde. For one person, this night represented an ending: an ending to one thousand years of darkness and an ending to ten years of light. But, for everyone else, is there no end to this one night of hell?
