    A life without freedom to choose is not worth having. Godwin Baxter’s scientific ambition to create the perfect companion is realised when he finds the drowned body of the beautiful Bella, who he brings back to life in a Frankenstein-esque feat.

    But his dream is thwarted by Dr. Archibald McCandless’s jealous love for his creation…

    But what does Bella think?

    This story of true love and scientific daring whirls the reader from the private operating-theatres of late-Victorian Glasgow through aristocratic casinos, low-life Alexandria and a Parisian bordello, reaching an interrupted climax in a Scottish church.
