Doc and Frank take off when the project that Frank is part of gets canceled. To end it would be Frank's death, something Doc can't let happen.
In the meantime, one of the most rapidly nasty "bad guys" you can imagine, working for the government on projects so black they rival black holes, has been sent to take down this "threat"that Frank represents. So, if you're with me so far, I can assume you see the potential for a major "issue" here.
This book is one I'd wholeheartedly recommend.
Who is Frankenstein? We often think of him as the creation, though the creator's name in the original was Victor Frankenstein and the monster was called Frankenstein. In this story, Dr. Chris Alexander is the monster. At first. He is a self-loathing, self-debasing semi-realist. I say semi because his story begins with a modicum of faith. Whether it's faith in humanity or faith in technology, you'll have to decide. He's a fascinating character that made me want to hug him, slap him, shake him, and kiss him during his journey with Frank. Frank is an enigma. He's a child. He's Amish. He's autistic. This story is about the both of them. They take a journey together and discover something wonderful - hope. They both grow. They are both humans, despite the fact that Frank's heart and mind live in the body of a killing machine. Why does he save the terminally ill autistic boy? How does an autistic boy, with limitations based on his autism alone, come to terms with his new body (a mechanical killing machine) and an Amish mindset?
Nothing is as it seems in this roller coaster ride. It's a story of redemption. My favorite kind. It's original, thought-provoking, technologically sound and singularly clever. It will not disappoint.
There are a few niggles with this book, including the common failure to research simple weapons terminology. While I can't quibble with descriptions of military weapons, we get treated to the common error of handgun magazines referred to as "clips." Also, I can name on the toes of my left hand all of the semi-auto 38 pistols. It might be possible that Michael meant the venerable.380ACP pocket pistol, but "38" is almost always a revolver round.
One big downer is the homicidal "good guy" Cyrano Dresser, who is an over-the-top cartoon stereotype of the ruthless government "problem solver." One can only hope that we don't have such men in our government, although this character would play well on screen as the guy you love to hate.
