Juliet Moreau, who had only known a life of luxury and intrigue, has been sent to work as a maid at a medical school in London after her father is suspected of conducting horrific experiments. She is left orphaned and penniless in the growing industrial city, but soon uncovers a chilling clue that leads her to believe her father is alive and well... and continuing his gruesome experiments on a remote tropical island where he has been creating humans out of animals. With the help of her father's assistant, the handsome servant boy from her childhood, she sets off on a quest to uncover the truth of her father's work, and to discover whether or not she herself has the propensity for a bit of madness.
