The #1 internationally bestselling author of The Demonologist radically reimagines the origins of gothic literature’s founding masterpieces—Frankenstein, The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde, and Dracula—in a contemporary novel driven by relentless suspense and surprising emotion. This is the story of a man who may be the world’s one real-life monster, and the only woman who has a chance of finding him. ~Goodreads

Dr. Lily Dominick is a forensic psychiatrist in New York.  Nothing surprises her with her clients until one day she interviews a client who claims he is more than two hundred years old, says he inspired the stories wrote by Mary Shelley, Robert Louis Stevenson and Bram Stoker….then….says that he is also her father.  Lily’s mother died in a tragic way when she was little and her father was never in the picture, but Lily doesn’t believe this client one bit until he unveils a few details that sends a creep up her spine.

Lily’s client also tells her she is the reason he committed the crime that put him in a chair under her observation.   He seems to put her under a spell, to the point where she starts to believe that what he is claiming may be the truth.  Dr. Dominick is sent on a wild goose chase to uncover the secrets this man is holding no matter if it threatens her job, life or her own sanity….she follows the client’s orders after he escapes the institution, even following him to different countries.

As the story goes on, Lily discovers her true nature, her true father and SO much more in this intense psychological thriller!  This book will get into your head and will surprise you to it’s end.  There’s an intriguing concept here, I think you all will enjoy!
