|| Prometheus is one of a kind and on a mission to tell his story and clear his name. With a detailed letter to the New York Press editor, he describes how his father, Dr. Vick Frankenstein, secretly created him in a lab using the best human parts at his disposal. He didn't stitch together a monster—he crafted a nearly perfect being with the strongest body, the smartest mind, and the most handsome face. But the biased society of 1960, embroiled in racial inequality and contesting change, isn't ready for this advanced, man-made entity and neither is its creator. Threatened by Prometheus' existence, the jealous doctor plots to lock him away, yet his obsessive desire for recognition sets off a disastrous chain of events driving his beautiful wife into the arms of his creation and leading to a nationwide manhunt for a person branded the East Coast Killer.
