It is a journey down wrong roads that can lead to unexpectedly and stunningly right destinations ... into subterranean depths where the darkness of the human soul breeds in every conceivable form ... over unfamiliar terrain populated by the denizens of hell.

Collective f 2 full novels, a compilation of 12 novelettes & short stories, is a master of fiction by one of the great authors of our time. Another plus is you can sit & read a story all at once, choosing whether you want a short or longer dose of the book. Excellent storylines
Another great book by Dean Koontz. This isn't my favorite but still very good. A man is given a chance to go back in time to the night he made a horrible decision to try to make it right. Some people will die but some may be saved if he can figure out who the killer is and what his next move will be.

Very good book!
Joey Shannon know that a supernatural force drives him toward the meaning of his troubled life, waiting somewhere along a two-land mountain road. There, he'll be allowed to replay the fateful night of his youth, drawing only on the depth of his own wisdom and courage.
This book contains several short stories...some good some bad. I enjoyed reading most of them. Some charmed me others frightened me. This would be good for someone that does not want to commit to a novel.
