After mesmerizing readers with her Victorian-era debut, THE SOLITARY HOUSE, Lynn Shepherd and her two brilliant detectives—Charles Maddox and his uncle—return in A FATAL LIKENESS, a mystery set in the chilling gothic atmosphere of the Romantics and their greatest creation, Frankenstein, centering on Mary Shelley and Percy Bysshe Shelley, and the madman who has them in his crosshairs . . .
“Shepherd shines again in this superb Victorian thriller. . . . The novel works equally as a family story, a blend of horror and mystery, and a plausible hypothesis about why so many women and children associated with Shelley died mysterious deaths.”
