The Frankenstein Monster

Not all monsters remain fictional…

Percy Shelley’s legendary poetry lives on long after his death in 1850s England. But when his son and famed widow, Mary, are approached by a stranger offering to sell rare papers allegedly by Percy, Charles Maddox is called to look at the suspicious texts.

But the case is not as simple as it appears, with Mary’s bitter stepsister, Claire Clairmont, also on the scene. As the investigation grows more disturbing, shocking evidence of foul play is discovered, leaving Maddox hunting for an even darker truth…

Taking inspiration from Mary Shelley’s classic Frankenstein, Lynn Shepherd turns a literary legend into an otherworldly tale.

Previously called A Treacherous Likeness.
