Publisher's Summary

A strange doll is left on Tommy Phan's front steps, stranger than anyone could ever imagine. Later he hears an odd popping sound and is intrigued to find it coming to life. Tommy pursues the thing as it scrambles away, and then is pursued by it as it evolves from a terrifying and vicious manikin into a larger, more formidable opponent bent on killing him. What in the world is this thing and why is it after him?


What the Critics Say

"Dean Koontz is not just a master of our darkest dreams, but also a literary juggler." (The Times [London])

Eerie, yet fun

This book is great fun if you're looking for entertainment that's rather scary, surprisingly funny (I laughed out loud at parts), and baffling to the end. I would call it a light-hearted tale were it not so downright frightening at times. But the humor is the chief appeal of this story, and Koontz shows that he has a real flare for it.

I'm giving it 4 stars rather than 5 because the characters did not seem fully believable to me. Close, but not quite there. Nevertheless, it's one of those books you can't stop listening to because you need to find out what happens next. Paul Michael, the narrator of this book, is masterful! He is one of my all-time favorites--always a treat to hear. This book is great fun. If you want some chills and some laughs to go with them, listen to this one.

This book is wonderfully descriptive with great character building, but the substance is really weak. I was disappointed, wishing there could have been a little less description and a little more story!
