Dean Koontz can be counted upon to set us up with a good story that revolves around the age old conflict of good vs evil. He hasn’t let us down with his newest offering Elsewhere. We have a mother who went missing seven years ago. She just up and left. There’s a dad, Jeffy Coltrane and his daughter Amity. They live a simple existence in a small town. The dad repairs vintage Bakelite radios and resells them at auctions for huge profits. Everything’s simple – until –
One of the homeless men living in the woods nearby gives Jeffy a package to hold for him with the warning to not to open, don’t look inside. “Better you don’t know. It’s the incessant need to know more and more and yet still more, to know everything this is the fast track to destruction.” Inside this box, he said was the “Key To Everything”, even valuing it at seventy-six billion dollars. Yes, Billion-with-a-B. Furthermore, claiming the fate of humanity now lay in Jeffy’s hands. And he left.

This was a 3 page summary. Thought it was the book. Ridiculous.
Elsewhere by Dean Koontz Summary
This book is a damned cliff notes or something. The title on the cover says Elsewhere by Dean Koontz. I had no idea what SummaryKing underneath meant. Wish there was a way to undo this useless throwing away of money because I was too damned naive! I couldn’t figure out how to rate negative stars but that is how I rate this drivel. -100 stars
