Publisher's Summary

A frightening novella from the #1 New York Times master of suspense…
Ben Chase is a war hero, but a reluctant one. He struggles with bitter memories and feels alienated from the culture to which he has returned. When he claims that a psychopath is stalking him, he has by then made such an outsider of himself that no one believes him. He must resurrect the repressed warrior within to save himself and a woman he comes to love. Heroes need monsters to slay, and they can always find them - within if not without.

Past Imperfect

Chase is a Koontz novella from 1972. I enjoyed the protagonist and a number of story elements, but Chase had less character development and interesting action than the many longer (and better) Koontz novels. The romantic interest (and the protagonist’s only friend) is introduced quite late in the book, with little time left for development. I enjoyed what there was, but it ended far too soon, feeling truncated, and like about one-half of a really good Koontz novel. The narration is very good, clear, clean, and with subtle emotionality that enhance the story. I won’t read this again, but enjoyed what it was.

Interesting, dark, and disturbing

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yes, it was a listen that kept me involved with the character. Chase clearly was dealing with demons, and his actions specifically at the end was a moment I didn't see coming.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Not sure, nothing to really change.

What about Nick Podehl’s performance did you like?

Yes, Nick's performance was great.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Yes, the racist related component extracted an emotion out of me, the end really surprised me, I was caught off guard.
