    In 1823, Mary Shelleys Frankenstein is a popular bestseller but her real-life childhood friend Isabella Baxter Booth feels shes facing an actual monster: her violent husband. Mary wrote about a mysterious encounter between them in London; this novel imagines what happens after a distraught Isabella tries and fails to enlist her help. Meanwhile, young Scottish doctor Alexander has already caused havoc abroad with his single-minded determination to find the perfect research subject to make his name in the new field of psychiatry. When Alexander and Isabellas paths cross in Broughty Ferry, the doctor becomes embroiled in more than a case study as he tries to establish the truth about Isabellas marriage and about the causes of madness itself.
