Suspense. A joy to read. Dean Koontz is never disappointing!

ES the horror fan ,

Lightning in a bottle!

Like reading horror novels? Like reading mysteries? Don’t ignore all of the customer reviews from people saying they love this book. They know what they’re talking about! When it comes to horror tales and mysteries, Dean Koontz writes in both genres and, as a fan, I can promise you that he is INCREDIBLE at it! This book is a thriller, not a horror novel. Unlike some of the others, it’s also not the first book I read by Koontz; I read lots of others before I found this one. Still, any and all readers who call this one of his best are not wrong. This romantic suspense story/sci-fi thriller/chase thriller is fantastic! Considering that Koontz always seems to me to be an author who loves to scare readers even as he entertains and uplifts by showing us the best side of human nature, this book features one of his most diabolical concepts as a writer of any kind of scary book! Ditto for the villains! Once you find out exactly who they are, you’ll be thinking: “Thank goodness the idea for this book can’t really happen! It would be a nightmare!” So, if you’ve never read Dean Koontz and you’re looking for a great new horror author or suspense author to try, read this book! If you’re already a fan of Koontz, whether a longtime fan or a newcomer, read this book! Take my word for it: You’ll have a new favorite on your hands for sure!

DK’s work stands the test of time. I read this book decades ago and it is still mesmerizing as I finish it again in 2020. No other author creates such chilling atmospheres. It’s like the age old question...Beatles or Stones. Koontz or King. Also highly recommend the Frankenstein series.
