From the celebrated imagination of Dean Koontz comes a powerful reworking of one of the classic stories of all time. If you think you know the legend, you know only half the truth. Here is the mystery, the myth, the terror, and the magic of...
DEAN KOONTZ’S CITY OF NIGHT
They are stronger, heal better, and think faster than any humans ever created–and they must be destroyed. But not even Victor Helios–once Frankenstein–can stop the engineered killers he’s set loose on a reign of terror through modern-day New Orleans. Now the only hope rests in a one-time “monster” and his all-too-human partners, Detectives Carson O’Connor and Michael Maddison. Deucalion’s centuries-old history began as Victor’s first and failed attempt to build the perfect human–and it is fated to end in the ultimate confrontation between a damned creature and his mad creator. But first Deucalion must destroy a monstrosity not even Victor’s malignant mind could have imagined–an indestructible entity that steps out of humankind’s collective nightmare with one purpose: to replace us.

Dean Koontz, the author of many #1 New York Times bestsellers, lives in Southern California with his wife, Gerda, their golden retriever, Elsa, and the enduring spirit of their goldens, Trixie and Anna.From AudioFile:
Victor Frankenstein, yes, that Victor Frankenstein, is alive and well in New Orleans, where he is creating an entire race of "new men." Koontz's latest is a respectful follow-up to the original story and is performed beautifully. John Bedford Lloyd is a commanding reader with a voice that grabs the listener by the throat, metaphorically speaking. He's perfect as the voice of the evil Victor Frankenstein, his voice and demeanor that of an amoral genius. Lloyd is equally effective as Frankenstein's original creation, "the monster" brought to life by lightning and arcane science. This time around, it's clear which of them is the true monster.
