For recent college graduate Ronald Hastie, a job at the legendary Shakespeare and Company bookshop offers the perfect occupation during a summer abroad in Paris. Working part-time in exchange for room and board leaves plenty of freedom to explore the city once visited by his literary hero, Robert Louis Stevenson, and things only get better when he meets a collector who claims to have the original manuscripts of both the first draft of Jekyll and Hyde and the never-published The Travelling Companion (both thought to have been destroyed).

Then Ron meets the man's mysterious assistant, and a reckless obsession stirs inside him. As the life he knew back home in Scotland fades from memory, he desperately seeks the secret lying within Stevenson's long-lost pages...

 
Ian Rankin is the bestselling author of the Inspector Rebus and Detective Malcom Fox novels. His books have been translated into thirty-six languages. He is the recipient of four CWA Dagger Awards and an Edgar Award.

'An ideal [stocking filler] would be Ian Rankin's novella The Travelling Companion where Rankin gets to explore one of his favourite subjects: Robert Louis Stevenson. Beautifully published by Head of Zeus' Shotsmag
