Victor Frankenstein, a serious-minded student from Switzerland, meets "Mad Shelley", poet and atheist, at Oxford University. Soon, the two young men are deep in discussion of electrical science and natural philosophy. Frankenstein begins to contemplate new principles and new beliefs. Frankenstein embarks on his anatomy experiments in a barn in the secluded village of Headington, just outside Oxford. But the cadavers supplied by the local coroner are frequently damaged or decaying, so he moves his coils and fluids to a deserted pottery manufactory in Limehouse. Here he makes contact with the Doomsday men - the resurrectionists - who row across the Thames in the dead of night to bring him the fresh corpses of the recently dead… Spine-chilling narrative and ingeniously clever twists of plot and character.
