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 story, you know only half the truth. Get ready for the mystery, the myth, the terror, and the magic of - Dean Koontz's prodigal son. Every city has secrets. But none as terrible as this. His name is Deucalion, a tattooed man of mysterious origin, a sleight-of-reality artist who's traveled the centuries with a secret worse than death. He arrives as a serial killer stalks the streets, a killer who carefully selects his victims for the humanity that is missing in himself. Detective Carson O'Connor is cool, cynical, and every bit as tough as she looks. Her partner Michael Maddison would back her up all the way to Hell itself-and that just may be where this case ends up. For the no-nonsense O'Connor is suddenly talking about an ages-old conspiracy, a near immortal race of beings, and killers that are more-and less-than human. Soon it will be clear that as crazy as she sounds, the truth is even more ominous. For their quarry isn't merely a homicidal maniac-but his deranged maker.

Man I was so angry when this one ended and I had to wait for the second book! LOVE the series. Interesting twists and turns. Probably could of combined so there were only three books, not four. But that is o.k. LOVE this series! Read it three times already!

Have loved all of Koontz's books I've read and this is no exception. Fantastic start to a series. I think BSG fans might enjoy the similarities of the characters.

"Who's that figure?" "The one with winged feet? That's Mercury." "And that one next to him?" "Aphrodite," said Fullbright. "Are they..." "Engaged in sodomy?" the mortician asked jovially. "Indeed they are. You'd be amazed how many mourners notice and are cheered by it." "I am amazed," (Detective) Michael agreed.
