Dean Koontz's Frankenstein (4) -- Lost Souls Paperback
by Dean Koontz
Part of the Dean Koontz's Frankenstein series
SOMEONE NEW IS PLAYING GOD The Frankenstein story updated to the 21st century by the great American storyteller Dean Koontz.
In a powerful reworking of one of the classic stories of all time, Dr Frankenstein lives on, seemingly indestructible, more malignant than ever.
Frankenstein's first monster, Deucalion, has spent two hundred years trying to put an end to his creator.
Now he learns that a new Frankenstein clone, Victor Helios, is out there again, somewhere.
Terrifyingly, with each incarnation the sinister doctor draws closer to the possibility of succeeding in his ambition to create a new human race - which he will control.
He has found an enigmatic backer and is working in a secret location.
Together with the two ex-cops who helped him destroy the previous Victor, Deucalion is drawn to the small Montana town where Victor's grotesque new creations are taking shape.
Victor's New Race is spectacularly different, a product of cutting-edge technology and stem-cell circuits, and when things go wrong, they go wrong in very unexpected ways.
Frankenstein is unleashing a new menace on the world, whether or not he can control it.
It may be too late, even if Deucalion can bring him down.

Review by Marlene-NL
I am so glad book 3 ended up not being the last in this series cause i was so disappointed after reading Dead and Alive. In Lost Souls you will be reacquainted with some of the characters of the other books. I love Jocko! and Dean Koontz manages to make me laugh something I do not like when reading a thriller or a horror book normally but did not mind this time. I am enjoying the story. Maybe only negative thing is that there are to too many brave people in this book who instead of trying to flee, fight but it makes for a more interesting read I guess. Well now that I've wrote about book 4 guess what I am going to do? Go to bed with book 5! The Dead Town.
