Dead and AliveAudiobook CD - 2009
What if Mary Shelley's Dr. Frankenstein lived on as an evil genius? Best selling author Dean Koontz tackles this question in his Frankenstein series. In the third installment, as Hurricane Katrina ravages New Orleans, Victor Helios (Frankenstein) releases an army of his creations to wreak havoc on the city's streets. However, when his dense monsters spin out of control, Victor must call on his original creation: his first -- and failed -- attempt to build the perfect human, the tormented Deucalion, to combat the epic nightmare. Deucalion's centuries-old history began as the original manifestation of a soulless vision -- and it is fated to end in the ultimate confrontation between the damned creature and his mad creator. But first they must face a monstrosity not even Victor's malignant mind could have conceived: an indestructible entity that steps out of humankind's collective nightmare with powers -- and a purpose -- beyond imagining.
