The Resurrectionist

The Resurrectionist

The Resurrectionist

(By Ian Dixon Potter and Robert Pope)

A brilliant scientist strives to protect his creation in the face of universal revulsion and hostility.

Set in Switzerland during the stormy summer of 1816, ’The Resurrectionist’ reveals for the first time, the extraordinary ‘true’ events which inspired Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. 

Lord Byron refuses to accept the sudden death of his beloved servant Blaize and in desperation turns to the enigmatic Victor Darvell, a reclusive scientist who has long been awaiting just such an opportunity to bring his diabolical researches to their unnatural and terrifying conclusion. 

Mary Shelley finds herself drawn into the dark and tragic events which unfold in Darvell’s gloomy castle, towering above the shores of Lake Geneva.
