Helpful Score: 4
I was worried that this was going to be about the famous movie star described on the book jacket. I was so pleased to find out that he never materializes as a character. The Face is about something entirely different. I loved this book. I really really liked the good guys and I really really hated the bad guys. I found it also had a very statisfying ending. Mr Koontz has yet to displease me or let me down. Thank you Mr Koontz!
