''Switzerland, in 1816. Lord Byron, Shelley, Shelley's wife Mary and Byron's physician Dr Polidori are in the Villa Diodati beside Lake Geneva. Polidori is a hanger-on whose presence is merely tolerated. Yet he will stop at nothing to outwit them all. He enters a Faustian pact with an elusive penfriend, Annette Legrand, who is the mysterious third member of the infamous Legrand sisters, the notorious vaudeville act. Annette will produce for him the most compelling vampire story ever written, which he will read aloud the very night Mary Shelley is to reveal for the first time her tale of Frankenstein. But, in exchange, what can the effete Polidori offer this ghostly female predator, and what is her secret? ''.
