Format: Mass Market Paperback
Don't get me wrong. I am a fan of the author, but the last two books that I have read by him, this one included, have been deeply flawed. This one has an intriguing premise but fails in its execution. Hampered by ponderous, turgid prose, dialogue that is laughable, at times, characters that are not well developed, and a plot that never really makes the grade, and....well, you get the picture.

Twenty years ago, a sadistic, serial killer named Alton turner Blackwood went on a killing spree and managed to wipe out nearly four families, before being stopped by a fourteen year old boy of one of those same families. That boy, John Calvino, is now a homicide detective.

When a similar killing spree begins again in John Calvino's neck of the woods, he is certain that the similarities are not a coincidence and that the killer is back, even though he himself slew him twenty years ago. He is also convinced that his family is also a target. This is his story.

After reading this book, I am beginning to believe that the author himself was taken over by a demonic spirit, one that has not a clue about writing. All I can say is that, if you are a die hard fan of the author, borrow this book from the library, as I did. You will not regret the decision to do so, as the book is not worth buying. As you begin reading it and find yourself reluctantly plodding through the book, you will be thankful that it is a library book. It is that bad.

I love Dean Koontz novels. However this particular novel flew away from me. I tried so many times to pick it up again and again and just read it. At some point I'm going to get hooked, somewhere, somehow. No nothing. It bored me so very much. Not every novel is for everybody. In my opinion this one was not his best work.

John Calvino--homicide detective sneaking around on a fresh case that isn't his. Entering a full security prison to talk to Billy, a 14-15 year old kid who just murdered his family and called the cops-meeting them naked on his front porch. Using phrases exactly like the long dead deformed spoon fingered freak Alton Turner Blackwood used years ago--when HE savagely and brutally killed every single one of John's family members, including his two young, beautiful preteen/teen sisters.

I don't know what happend here, but Dean Koontz got a bit 'lost' here....I LOVED his novel 'Whispers', but 'this' book left me completely dissatisfied and ticked off. I don't mind paranormal at all....but this went too far, and really stupid, to be honest. I'm very unhappy with this book. The beginning got me SO hooked....that by the time I realized 'where' it was going, I just wanted to finish it and get rid of it.
