While on routine patrol, environmental scientist Rafael Salazar expects to find animal poachers, not a dilapidated antique steamer trunk. He discovers a journal, which divulges ominous particulars about the creation of THE STRANGE CASE OF DR. JECKYLL AND MR. HYDE. It also promises to reveal a terrible secret --- the identity of Jack the Ripper. Unfortunately, the journal isn’t the only relic in the trunk, and a mysterious flask containing the last drops of the grisly potion that inspired JEKYLL AND HYDE and spawned London’s most infamous killer has gone missing. And it has definitely fallen into the wrong hands.

These mysteries may, in fact, defy --- or fulfill --- the dire prophecies of Albert Einstein himself. Struggling to decipher the sarcophagus’s strange contents, Lucas and Simone unwittingly release forces for both good and unmitigated evil. The fate of the world hangs not only on Professor Einstein’s secret research but also on Lucas’s ability to defeat an unholy adversary more powerful than anything he ever imagined.
