Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Book One, Prodigal Son, the first in a quartet originally devised for American television. It is supposed to be coming over here but is unconfirmed. This is the Frankenstein story updated for the 21st century. The monster has survived time but so has Dr Frankenstein himself and a whole bevy of further creatures he created. This is classic good versus evil stuff spiced up a bit with some unexpected twists thrown in. Good, exciting horror; great fun.

Comparison: Stephen King, James Herbert, Clive Barker.
Similar this month: Michael Marshall, Anthony Horowitz.

Synopsis

Dean Koontz's Frankenstein : Book One - Prodigal Son by Dean Koontz and Kevin J Anderson

Frankenstein's monster has survived the centuries to become a creature living in the shadows of modern civilization, a haunted and really quite heroic figure dedicated to battling the truly monstrous evil that has also survived the years: the cruel genius who gave him life, Dr Frankenstein.

The legendary monster is called Deucalion. The action takes place in modern-day New Orleans where the next generation of Dr Frankenstein's monsters is wreaking havoc. But it's Deucalion, newly arrived in the city, who is the obvious suspect in the eyes of Detective Carson O'Connor. The cool, tough cop is soon talking about an ages-old conspiracy, a near immortal race of beings, and killers that are more -- and less -- than human. She doesn't know Deucalion and she are on the same side. Deucalion seeks one final confrontation with the evil genius who created him, Dr Frankenstein.

Dean Koontz, the master storyteller, creates a bold new legend.
