Dead and Alive is the third novel in the first trilogy of Dean Koontz's Frankenstein series. Originally intended to be co-authored by Ed Gorman and Dean Koontz, Koontz stated that he would be writing this alone.
Deucalion, the legendary monster, is a heroic figure dedicated to battling the evil that gave him life. The megalomaniacal Victor Helios has, by design and accident, unleashed many of his engineered killers on modern-day New Orleans. Detectives Carson O'Connor and Michael Maddison are Deucalion's all-too-human partners trying to end the reign of terror of Helios's killers.
A resistance movement also builds from within Helios' power structure, as many of his vat-made men and women recognize that to fight back against Helios would bring a desired end to tedium, slavery, insanity, self-destructive abuse behaviors or life itself.
