Product Overview

From the celebrated imagination of Dean Koontz comes a powerful reworking of one of the classic stories of all time. If you think you know the legend, you know only half the truth. The mystery, the myth, the terror, and the magic continue. . . .
They are stronger, heal better, and think faster than any humans ever created-and they must be destroyed. Not even Victor Helios-once Frankenstein-can stop the engineered killers he''s set loose on a reign of terror through modern-day New Orleans. Only the one-time "monster" Deucalion and his all-too-human partners, Detectives Carson O''Connor and Michael Maddison, stand in their way. But as the three race to uncover the true dimensions of an age-old conspiracy, they will discover that Victor''s new, improved models have infiltrated every level of the city''s society . . . and far beyond.

Author Info
Dean Koontz
Along with Stephen King, Koontz is the preeminent horror writer of his age, selling millions and millions of books worldwide. Koontz had a horrific childhood; his father was an abusive alcoholic and his mother was mentally unstable, and they both actively discouraged him from pursuing a writing career. However, when the 12-year-old Koontz won an essay contest, the seed was planted. He studied education and was a high school English teacher from 1967 to 1969, at which point he began writing full time. At the end of the '90s, Dean Koontz has written nearly 80 books of suspense or horror.

From the Publisher
Annotation This thriller/horror novel continues the story launched in DEAN KOONTZ'S FRANKENSTEIN: PRODIGAL SON, in which both Victor Frankenstein (now Victor Helios) and his disfigured but decidedly intelligent monster, Deucalion, have survived into our century. In this installment, Deucalion and two New Orleans police detectives confront Victor Helios's army of genetically engineered psychopaths, now undergoing grotesque mutations and no longer responsive to Victor's orders.
Editors Note When Victor's latest creations, an army of engineered killers set loose in modern-day New Orleans, begin to exceed his expectations and exhibit logistical and analytical skills, he plans to eliminate the entire race, a plan that backfires into humankind's ultimate nightmare.
