By Daphne Mintz
Isolated in the brutal Arctic Zone, a scientist spends her life researching the whereabouts of Frankenstein’s monster as an expression of devotion for her delusional lover. Immersed in a world where fantasy thrives and dementia beckons, the invasion of sanity threatens to be the most fearsome monster. HER LAST EXPEDITION is a psychological thriller – haunting, horrific, and yet incredibly sweet. It is a love story.
