Frankenstein in Baghdad
A NovelBook - 2018
From the rubble-strewn streets of U.S.-occupied Baghdad, Hadi - a scavenger and an oddball - collects human body parts and stitches them together to create a corpse. But when the corpse goes missing, a wave of eerie murders sweeps the city, and reports stream in of horrendous-looking criminals who, though shot, cannot be killed. As the violence builds and Hadi's acquaintances - a journalist, a government worker, a lonely older woman - become involved, the Whatsitsname and the havoc it wreaks assume a magnitude far greater than anyone could have imagined.
