About This Book
Obsessed with creating life in a laboratory, a medical student haunts graveyards and dissecting rooms in search of the materials for his experiments. But when he achieves success, he rejects his ghastly creation. The creature—longing for love but shunned by all—turns evil and exacts revenge.
