Publisher's Summary

KOKO. Only four men knew what it meant. Now they must stop it. They are Vietnam vets — a doctor, a lawyer, a working stiff, and a writer. Very different from each other, they are nonetheless linked by a shared history and a single shattering secret. Now, they have been reunited and are about to embark on a quest that will take them from Washington, D.C., to the graveyards and fleshpots of the Far East to the human jungle of New York, hunting someone from the past who has risen from the darkness to kill and kill and kill.


What the Critics Say

“A masterpiece of terror.” (Los Angeles Times)
“Complexly plotted, thickly layered evil. . . . The ultimate horror.” (The New York Times Book Review)
“A dead-center hit. . . . A gripping, enthralling, nonstop read.” (San Francisco Chronicle)

Starts out slow, but builds suspense.

I almost stopped listening to this book a few chapters in, because it seemed to start out too slowly. Eventually, however, I was caught up in the story, which built to a high level of mystery and suspense, with a satisfactory conclusion. I'm not sure where the next book in the trilogy will take the story, but I will probably listen to it when it is added to audible.com.

Gays and Vietnam Vets

This should not be listed under Horror. Your in the book four hours before you even meet the bad guy and then only briefly. After about six hours the story starts to pick up, but not well enough for me to stick with it. I made it over seven hours. I am about five years to young for the Vietnam War. I remember it on the t.v. when I was in grade school and wondered why gorillas where fighting in Asia. There is a lot about gays and transvestites. The story probably moves to slow even for the groups it is meant for to enjoy.
