The cataclysmic conclusion to Koontz's brilliant reworking of the classic tale.
The war against humanity is raging. As the small town of Rainbow Falls, Montana, comes under siege, scattered survivors come together to weather the onslaught. Victor Frankenstein's nihilistic plan is to remake the future : a future in which mankind will be annihilated.
To accomplish this aim he has created nothing less than the shock troops of the Apocalypse. Now the alliance of the good must make their last, best stand and do battle against overwhelming odds. And Deucalion, Frankenstein's original and flawed attempt at replicating life, must finally confront his evil creator.
In a climax that will shatter every expectation, the fate of humanity hangs in the balance...

Comments about The Dead Town:
This is the third in a series. Book one was good, book two was pretty average, and this one did improve the story. It's my understanding that originally there were four books planned for the series - and that comes out in the book. In the last 40 pages things suddenly start to neaten up, until at the end you get a rush towards a perfectly wrapped up ending, all neat with a bow and all. It definitely feels like the book was written with an extended story in mind, and that the author then changed their mind and opted for the simple clean ending with no book four.
Having said that, it's a nice book, certainly worth reading if you read books one and two - just don't expect a deep and meaningful ending.
