Publisher's Summary

Spencer Grant had no idea what drew him to the bar with the red door. He thought he would just sit down, have a slow beer or two, and talk to a stranger. He couldn't know that it would lead to a narrow escape from a bungalow targeted by a SWAT team. Or that it would leave him a wanted man. Now he is on the run from mysterious and ruthless men. He is in love with a woman he knows next to nothing about. And he is hiding from a past he can't fully remember. On his trail is a shadowy security agency that answers to no one, including the U.S. government, and a man who considers himself a compassionate Angel of Death. But worst of all, Spencer Grant is on a collision course with inner demons he thought he'd buried years ago - inner demons that could destroy him if his enemies don't first.

Psychos in Love

This book takes a look at the dangers of our asset forfeiture laws in the USA. In fact, after the story is over the audiobook continues with an author interview where this topic is discussed in depth.

I found this story to be rather complex with several themes or sub-plots. It kept me quite entertained through out the whole book. As always, Koontz creates a complex villain whose twisted logic leaves you praying that nobody like them really exists.

Good Read

This book reminded me very much of his other book, "The Good Guy" but the lead characters were much more likable like "Odd Thomas." Interesting how the Technology can be so dated so quickly. The narration and pace were excellent. A bit unbelievable but fun reading.
