I love the old london books, the prelude to the book comments on the fact that Mary Shelly, who is even recognized by my husband for Frankenstein. .. this is an odd situation that she is remembered above her famous husband. the book looks into the days and nights that the manuscript was written and the later years of her life. the main character has a hint of Sherlock Holmes... if Holmes had a great nephew that too up his detective industry. Charles Maddox has been approached to investigate a scandalous claim being portrayed to attack the reputation of the Shelly legacy. Three questions come to be answered with the volume. Who wrote Frankenstein? And who was the inspiration? What is a legacy and how does it affect the history when someone tries to edit the truth?

If Lynn Shepherd cares about writing, she should stop doing it.
