Lightning is a gripping thriller from Dean Koontz, the master of chilling suspense, that will thrill fans of Richard Laymon and Harlan Coben.
'Lightning sizzles. Wow! It's a mix to tingle any reader's fancy' - New York Daily News
The first time the lightning strikes, Laura Shane is born...
The second time is strikes the terror starts... though eight-year-old Laura is saved by a mysterious stranger from the perverted and deadly intentions of a drug-crazed robber. Throughout her childhood she is plagued by ever more terrifying troubles, and with increasing courage she finds the strength to prevail - even without the intervention of her strange guardian. But, despite her success as a novelist, and her happy family life, Laura cannot shake the certainty that powerful and malignant forces are controlling her destiny.
Then the lightning strikes once more and shatters her world. The adventure - and the terror - have only just begun...
What readers are saying about Lightning:
'The story takes you from the past to the future; it twists, turns, makes you shiver and touches you'
'With ever-growing suspense, you screech to the end, breathless and disappointed that the story ended'
'Definitely the best Dean Koontz there is'
Since the night she was born, Laura Shane has been continually saved by a mysterious guardian who appears and disappears without a trail. Through the years, these random encounters prove more and more life-threatening, sending Shane down a dark path to which her savior, Stefan, has unintentionally led her and her family. But as Shane realizes "when" not "where" Stefan is from, she must scramble for her life as her enemies seek her out. Her only hope is in the knowledge that when lightning strikes, her enemies are near. Koontz isn't the first author to incorporate lightning with time travel, but he certainly shines new light on the subgenre of time travel. Koontz's 1988 novel gains new life in this unabridged production. Christopher Lane captures listeners with a stern and serious voice that can still lighten up, especially when voicing Shane's son, Chris, or other colorful characters. Lane's vocalizing of characters proves impressive, authentic and even amusing for everyone but Shane, whose voice is adequate but fades in comparison to the other characters. Regardless, Lane's narration improves upon the book by adding a tonal edge that will keep listeners' attention throughout all 14 hours.
Nog steeds spannend…bij de vierde keer doorlezen!
Jaren geleden gelezen…meerdere keren zelfs….en nu als e-book. En weer aan het lezen tot 02:00….terwijl je om 07:00 je bed uit moet! Zo spannend!
Great read, recommended!
