First Koontz book I read and I was hooked! Not all are this good, but Koonts is great!
If you are a fan of Dean Koontz, you know he has never written onee that isn't a grabber. You'll enjoy this!
As a huge Dean Koontz fan, I loved this book. The story follows a man who loses his family in a plane crash that killed everyone on board. The man later finds out there is a sole survivor, who has many secrets she is keeping. This book has the usual heavy character development found in Koontz's novels. A very good book.
Not sure how to describe the book without telling all the secrets of it. A thriller and will keep you on the edge... 5 sars from me...
Dean Koontz, always the best!
Excellent read. Love his imagination.
Another excellent read by Koontz
If you are a Stephen King fan, and haven't read Dean Koontz, you owe it to yourself to discover his writing!
Mystery. A man mourning the loss of his wife and daughter in a plane crash is told there was a sole survivor - a little girle. It's a race against time to find and protect her from unknown forces seeking to eliminate her.
A fast-paced mystery. The twist at the end makes you think....
I enjoyed reading this book very much.
What can one say? This is Dean Koontz, enter slowly and gently, end by getting blwon out of your seat. Koontz is good for that.
I have never met a Koontz book that I didn't like.
This like the others is great.
"A gripping search for a new explanation of worlds beyond our mortal ken. A fast-paced read."
- Mail on Sunday (London)
One of my favorites. No horror in this one.
Like other Koontz books, I found the characters likable and well-developed and liked the suspense. The one drawback was an ending that felt a bit rushed, jumping from an edge-of-your-seat chase to a peaceful epilogue.
Every once in a while I just have to read a Dean Koontz book. There is no one who can describe rain ,dirt, mist, storms, or anything else like he does,he reminds me of Louis Lamour stories and his descriptions of the old west.
And besides that, he has stories about stuff we can't even think about. I read one a while backj that described "hell" I think and this story on "The Survivor" is about a man's challenge to get over his loss of his family. The characters he comes up with without a bed scene or a barroom fight are fantastic. I will probably read this again sometime in the future when I get tired of regular stuff.
From Dean Koontz Website
A catastrophic, unexplainable plane crash leaves three hundred and thirty dead -- no survivors. Among the victims are the wife and two daughters of Joe Carpenter, a Los Angeles Post crime reporter.
A year after the crash, still gripped by an almost paralyzing grief, Joe encounters a woman named Rose, who claims to have survived the crash. She holds out the possibility of a secret that will bring Joe peace of mind. But before he can ask any questions, she slips away.
Driven now by rage (have the authorities withheld information?) and a hope almost as unbearable as his grief (if there is one survivor, are there others?), Joe sets out to find the mysterious woman. His search immediately leads him into the path of a powerful and shadowy organization hell-bent on stopping Rose before she can reveal what she knows about the crash.
