From the pen of Joseph Zettelmaier, who brought you The Gravedigger and Dr. Seward’s Dracula, comes another eerie and suspenseful tale. 100 years after the death of Victor Frankenstein, noted scientist Maria von Moos decides to excavate a ruined castle deep in the Geneva woods. In her search to uncover one mad-man’s secrets, she makes a startling discovery that will take us from the Swiss Alps to Vystario’s Menagerie of the Macabre and deep into the very soul of humanity. Inspired by the work of Mary Shelley, The Jigsaw Bride continues the electrifying legend.
