INCLUDES A CULTURAL HISTORY OF FRANKENSTEIN’S MONSTER

Navigating the Arctic, the captain of a ship rescues a man wandering near death across the ice caps. How the man got there reveals itself a story of ambition, murder and revenge. As a young scientist, Victor Frankenstein pushed moral boundaries in order to cross the final frontier and create life.

But his creation is a monster stitched together from grave-plundered body parts who has no place in the world, and his existence can only lead to tragedy.
