Publisher's Summary

There once was a killer who knew the night, its secrets and rhythms. How to hide within its shadows. When to hunt. He roamed from town to town, city to city, choosing his prey for their beauty and innocence. His cruelties were infinite, his humanity long since forfeit. But still... he had not yet discovered how to make his special mark among monsters, how to come fully alive as Death. This is the story of how he learned those things, and of what we might do to ensure that he does not visit us.

I wanted to mow the neighbors yard

The book is an hour and a half long and it takes about an hour to mow my yard. It made me want to go mow the neighbor's yard, instead I went inside, sat on the couch, drank a beer and finished it.

If you have read any of Koontz, with the exception of the Odd series, then this is exactly what you would expect from him. If you have not read Koontz, get out from under that rock and start here.

This is a bitter-sweet story, with a great main character who is a burn victim. I will not tell you how he got burned or how he deals with it, as that is a big part of the story. Just let me say I like how Koontz deals with it.

My favorite Dean Koontz books are: The Bad Place, Lightning, The Frankenstein series, Forever Odd, Phantoms, Dragon Tears, By the Light of the Moon and the very quirky book "Life Expectancy".

A story for dark nights and cocoa

This is a typical Koontz book and I find them all a very good listening experience. This story did not hold many surprises for me as I could see where it would go but, despite the horror story itself, which was creepy, I did find it a relaxing listen and worth the effort.
