Amelia Balfour has one dream. . .to tour Egypt as a travel writer. But when her wish is finally within reach, her father dies, and her malformed brother Colin depends upon her to arrange for a revolutionary surgery. Amelia returns home, hoping he’ll recover before the ship sails for Cairo.
Former Navy surgeon Graham Lambert is sick—of travelling, loneliness, and especially the injustice of the world. Leaving behind the military, he partners with a renowned surgeon, the man who promises new life to Amelia’s brother.
But just as the operation begins, Graham suspects the surgeon is a fraud. After a botched procedure, Colin goes mad and escapes, terrorizing their neighbor, author Mary Godwin—planting the seed for her greatest creation, Frankenstein.
Can Amelia and Graham stop Colin before he destroys everyone in his path and find the tender soul still trapped inside…or will they be too late?


Book Excerpt

“Mr. Walton.” Amelia curtseyed, all the while examining the man and the name, neither of which sparked any recognition. 

“Miss Balfour.” He nodded, his short stature giving her full view of a bald patch on the crown of his head. “I am here on behalf of your father. Perhaps you’d like to take a seat?” 

Father? At once she sank onto the sofa, as if the man himself had issued the order. And if she listened hard enough, she could hear his commanding voice as distinctly as the day he’d sent her on her way with naught but a curt goodbye and the promise of a yearly stipend just to be rid of her.  

She clutched the Cairo tickets all the tighter. “I trust all is well?” 

Mr. Walton took the chair adjacent, his feet barely skimming the carpet, so short were his legs. Setting his brief-bag on his lap, he clicked open the lock, the report of it as sharp as the hammer of a pistol.  

Amelia winced, as much from the sound as from the way his dark little eyes met hers. There was something foreboding in his gaze. Like a sinister shadow glimpsed from the corner of the eye and knowing in your gut that it was coming for you.
