quot;,And what rough beast, its hour come round at last,Slouches toward Bethlehem to be born?",It is from these famous lines of William Butler Yeats' ",The Second Coming", that Gary Goshgarian [Gary Braver] derives his title for this provocative novel.Rough Beast, set in a small town in Massachusetts, is a thriller in the tradition of Stephen King and Dean Koontz, combined with the scientific underpinnings of Michael Crichton. The elements of horror and suspense and intrigue reinforce one another in a many layered tale that ultimately brings the boundaries of nature into question. Gary Goshgarian [Gary Braver] has crafted a novel that plumbs the depths of genetic engineering, a powerful force that can be used for good or evil. Rough Beast explores the consequences of a genocidal experiment gone wrong and its effects on as normal, unsuspecting American family-especially on its twelve-year-old son, Matty.
