Publisher's Summary

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. Here is the mystery, the myth, the terror, and the magic of...

Every city has its secrets. But none as terrible as this. He is Deucalion, a tattooed man of mysterious origin, a sleight-of-reality artist who has traveled the centuries with a secret worse than death. He arrives in New Orleans as a serial killer stalks the streets, a killer who carefully selects his victims for the humanity that is missing in himself. Deucalion's path will lead him to cool, tough police detective Carson O'Connor and her devoted partner, Michael Maddison, who are tracking the slayer but will soon discover signs of something far more terrifying: an entire race of killers who are much more - and less - than human and, deadliest of all, their deranged, near-immortal maker: Victor Helios - once known as Frankenstein.

one of the best, more unique books I've read.

when I first heard the narrator's voice I instantly disliked it but before long I realised that he was perfect for this book and couldn't imagine anyone better brilliant!

Nope, just couldn't find any good in the book

I bought the first three in the Frankenstein series and after trying and finishing the first I'll not bother with the others.
Maybe it's me, I just want a ripping story with excitement or simply a good storyline or characters, nothing in this one comes close. Maybe it's the start (slow) start to a spellbinding series?

Loved it!

I really wasn't sure what to think about this book when my husband first suggested it. The story has been told and finished, what more was there to add?! Everything as it turns out!
Koontz writing is easy to get I to, I was hooked almost straight away. The narrator is simply brilliant at his job!
If you want to have a little bit of a weird murder mystery with compelling characters, this is for you!!

Addictive listening

Loved this book, addictive from the start. Beautifully wrote with a huge vocabulary of verbs. A sence of empathy for all characters.
