From New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hawkins comes a deliciously wicked new gothic suspense, set at an Italian villa with a deadly legacy. Weaving together past and present, this story within a story is inspired by the events of the Summer of 1816, when Percy and Mary Shelley joined Lord Byron at Villa Diodati—and where Mary famously wrote Frankenstein.
