Frankenstein: Prodigal Son

Frankenstein: Prodigal Son

by Dean Koontz and Kevin Anderson

Wanda Cohen (08/05/11): We've all heard of Frankenstein. He was the brainchild of Victor Frankenstein. Created from body parts of deceased criminals and brought to life with the power of a lightening bolt, he was viewed as a monster by all who met him. Fast forward 200 years to present day. The creature is still alive. His name is Deucalion and he lives peacefully and humbly in a Tibetan Monastery. He has spent his time becoming wise, becoming real, becoming human. He gets a message one day that rocks his world. He receives information that not only is he still alive but so is his creator. Victor Frankenstein, aka Victor Helios has become wealthy and respected and powerful. He has spent his time becoming controlling, sadistic, becoming a monster. Two New Orleans detectives are brought into his world against their will and certainly against their better judgement? The detectives are fabulous, witty and funny and also good at their job.

I love this book. It is well written, engaging, fast but detailed. It brings back the childhood experience of reading under the covers, with a flashlight, in the middle of the night. It's book one of a series but stands alone as well. Read it and share it! Rating: ***
