Penniless and disgraced, Adelaide Wentworth is feeling rather desperate. With nothing left to lose, she and her sister, Louisa, flee to Lake Geneva with Adelaide’s lover, the infamous poet Julian Estes. There, Louisa hopes to persuade her former lover, celebrated writer Bayard Sonnier, to advance Julian’s career. At the Villa Diodati --- the place that inspired the writing of FRANKENSTEIN 60 years earlier --- Louisa plots to rekindle her affair with Bayard, while Adelaide hopes to restore her fading love for Julian by being the muse he needs. But soon, a confused Adelaide turns to Giovanni Calina --- Bayard’s assistant and a man with his own secrets and deep resentments --- and the two form a dangerous alliance.
