What the Critics Say

"[Suzy] Jackson narrates with verve and also conveys a folksy quality in Bibi's dialogue with friends, her parents, and her boyfriend, a Navy SEAL. With dramatic flair, Jackson collapses the distance between the protagonist and listeners. Her deliberate pacing and Koontz's inventiveness as a storyteller are a terrific pairing." (AudioFile)

A truthful review

I've enjoyed Dean Koontz for decades but I will admit my trepidation about purchasing this one based on the reviews and more so based on the AWFUL previous book he published...of which I despised the narrator and story so much the title is erased from my memory HOWEVER I am so GLAD I went ahead and gave his writing another chance.
The narrator does not have a squeaky voice as reputed in other reviews...she sounds like a woman in her late 20's to early 30'a which equates to a not quite fully matured voice but one with a pleasant quality
If you are a follower of Dean Koontz then you know the qualities that define his best works: a strong brave and independent but sometimes innocently ignorant or naïve main character, a sprinkle of the supernatural, a profound battle between good and evil and of course a beautiful intelligent magical Golden Retriever...this book fulfills each of those listed. I won't say it is one of his best works, not even close to a Christopher Snow or Odd Thomas level nor Tick Tock and Sole Survivor BUT it does come close enough to prove he still is on his writing game.
I am not one to give away ANY part of a story...that is a writers gift to his readers and I trust if you don't let bad reviews cloud your judgement and just "walk the board" and "pet the cat" as you listen that you will be pleased with your purchase. Areana Szkola

Disappointed

As a huge Koontz fan I was very excited to see a new book out. If I had to guess the author, I would not have guessed Koontz if his name had not been on the cover. Not a typical Koontz book in many ways. Poorly executed plot that had promise but never grabbed you like the usual Koontz book. The surfer premise was not skillfully weaved into the overall storyline. Lots of open-ended things that never go anywhere. The plot never really delivered and the characters just weren't likable or believable. Worst rating I've ever given a Koontz book.
