Summary
"Forensic psychiatrist, Dr. Lily Dominick interviews a criminal suspect who claims that he is more than two hundred years old, personally inspired Mary Shelley, Robert Louis Stevenson, and Bram Stoker's novels, and is Lily's father. To discover the truth Lily embarks on a journey that will threaten her career, her sanity, and ultimately her life"--
Summary
Can a nameless man accused of a heinous crime in modern New York really be two centuries old and the model for Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, Dracula, and Frankenstein's monster? Psychiatrist Lily Dominick is driven to investigate this claim ... especially because the monstrous man also says he's her father. After he escapes from the psychiatric hospital, she pursues him to Eastern Europe -- but she, too, is being followed! Canadian author Andrew Pyper's expert homage to 19th-century literature will make gothic horror fans shiver with delight. -- Description by Katherine Bradley Johnson
