|Relax. Dean Koontz's Frankenstein, volume one of which, Prodigal Son
(2005), was a pulse-pounder all the way, is going to be a trilogy. But
don't expect to relax all that much. This book cooks, no second-volume
doldrums anywhere in it.

|"A compelling read.... The odd juxtaposition of a police
procedural with a neo-gothic, mad scientist plot gives the novel a
wickedly unusual and intriguing feel ... with an elegant cliffhanger
"This is classic Koontz at his best. The plot zips along, the
characters are grotesque and funny. The basic elements of Mary Shelley's
novel, though slightly altered, fit right in."
