it was amazing
Read in January, 2007

This is book #1 of the Frankenstein Series, introducing you to yet another of Koontz's amazing literary creations. The time-period is the present, yet Dr Victor Frankenstein himself is still alive, after 240+ years, as is his 1st "monster," who now calls himself Deucalion. Apparently still alive as a sort-of side effect of being brought to life by lightening, rather than straight electricity, as Victor is currently doing, Deucalion has become "human" on the inside, and is no longer the monster he once was.
Incredibly, he finds himself in New Orleans, where he soon stumbles upon the fact that Victor is not only still alive, but has perfected his methods, and is creating a super-race intended to replace all humans on earth.
Deucalion teams up with a pair of Homicide Detectives, and they begin trying to find and take down Dr Frankenstein. I won't say anymore...just pick this series of (so-far)4 novels, and begin reading. Let me know what you think!
