Adventure buffs weaned on the swashbuckler Kidnapped may not even know about its sequel, Catriona! Robert Louis Stevenson continues the story of orphan David Balfour, pitching him into a story packed with political intrigue, forbidden love, and a murder mystery. Stevenson employs the flair for action he brought to such adventure staples as Treasure Island and The Strange Case of Dr. Jeckyll and Mr. Hyde in this gripping yarn. David Case lends a lively, if old-fashioned gravitas to his performance of this classic of young adult literature.
In the sequel to Kidnapped, David Balfour's story continues as he becomes further caught up in the political conspiracy of the "Appin Case." He must defend himself and James Stewart of the Appin murder; not an easy task because the Campbells want James Stewart to hang. The "Tale of Tod Lapraik," a crucial part of the novel about a diabolical obsession, is considered one of Stevenson's greatest Scottish tales. The book also introduces two of Stevenson's most memorable female characters: the Highland heroine, Catriona, and her friend (sometimes rival), Barbara Grant.
