One of my favorite suspense stories. Two people are trapped on the 40th floor of the man's high rise deserted office building by a serial killer. The man is an ex-mountain climber who, after a severe trauma, is terrified of heights. I wondered all the way to the end of the book how they would survive, and the ending did not disappoint (unlike many thriller endings!)...

Great book that is hard to put down once you start reading! This was one of the best Dean Koontz books that I have read, and I've read lots of them. It's very suspenseful--will keep you on the edge of your chair.

This book was kind of weird but good. I didnt think it would be that great since in only takes place in an office building and thats it but it turned out to be good. It was a quick read too.

Wow! Another gripping read from Koontz. It takes place in less than 48 hours and moves so quickly that I truly had a hard time putting it down. And the twist at the end was great!

A classic Koontz book, romantic banter, psycho manic killer, what more does a girl need? Not my favorite of the Koontz books but a very good read.

Typical Koontz, if you like his writing, they're all entertaining and usually thought provoking.

Knocked this out in a day. Very fast paced and exciting. Maybe a little too sappy an ending but it was a good read anyway!

Typical Koontz fare, but with some females thrown in to make things interesting. It's about a guy trapped on tyhe 40th floor of a deserted office building with no way out except to go down the outside of the building with a psychopath on your trail. You know, everyday kinda stuff.

Book in fairly good shape. It's been read a few times, and the cover is a little worn around the edges.
