What if Mary Shelley got it wrong? What if Dr. Victor Frankenstein was not a victim of his own creation? And what if he was a truly evil genius determined to replace humanity with his own "perfect" progeny? What if Dr. Frankenstein is still alive today, living in New Orleans? That's the premise of Dean Koontz's new four-book saga, co-written with Kevin J. Anderson. John Bedford Lloyd gives an uninspired reading of the first book in the series, which tells of Frankenstein's original monster assisting a pair of New Orleans police officers as they track a serial killer who may be one of Frankenstein's creations. The story is intriguing, but Lloyd sounds uninterested, modulating his voice with false melodrama. S.E.S. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: APR/MAY 05]
