Ooooh--This one should not be read in the dark!
A creepy, mysterious game is being played with Billy Wiles....can he figure it out before more people die?
Koontz hits another home run with this one!
Engaging story and fast-paced enough to hold my interest throughout the novel. For Koontz fans, you won't be disappointed. For those unfamiliar with Koontz, this is an excellent example of the type of complex plot and general mayhem you can expect from him.
Another great tale by Kean Koontz. Billy finds a note in his car it reads, "If you don't take this note to the police...I will kill a lovely blond school teacher...If you do...I will instead kill an elderly woman active in charity work. You have six hours to decide. The choice is yours."
What a way to start your day eh?
This was my first book by Koontz, and I must say I have placed orders for three more of his books. I didn't think I'd enjoy this at first, as my genre taste usually differs very greatly from the thriller/crime/horror type. Even though I had the whole thing figured out in the beginning (thanks to years of criminal investigation shows...), I enjoyed every chapter and even stayed up well into the night reading it (absolutely a page-turner). I feel Koontz has a very decent style of writing, with just the perfect amount of "shockers" and cliff-hangers. I'd definitely recommend this book to anyone who likes Koontz, is looking for a good thriller, or likes this genre (even those who don't!).
OMG!! What a great book! Non-stop intrigue from the beginning!!! Koontz is hit & miss for me, this is a HIT!!
