Book III of Dean Koontz’s Frankenstein. A devastating hurricane approaches New  Orleans and  Victor Helios, once known as Frankenstein, has unleashed his benighted creatures onto the streets. As New Orleans descends into chaos his engineered killers spin out of control and the future of humanity hangs in the balance, the only hope rests with Victor’s first, failed attempt to build the perfect human. 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 a 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.
