From the rubble-strewn streets of US-occupied Baghdad, the scavenger Hadi collects human body parts and stitches them together to create a corpse. His goal, he claims, is for the government to recognize the parts aspeople and give them a proper burial. But when the corpse goes missing, a wave of eerie murders sweeps the city, and reports stream in of a horrendous-looking criminal who, though shot, cannot be killed. Hadi soonrealises he has created a monster, one that needs human flesh to survive - first from the guilty, and then from anyone who crosses its path.An extraordinary achievement, Frankenstein in Baghdad captures with whiteknuckle horror and black humour the surreal reality of a city at war.
