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".

Nice very short Koontz

This is a nice, but very short, Koontz. The characters are good if truncated. It ends very quickly with a moral that, although reasonable, was not really well supported by the story. The language is nice and blends darkness and light well. I really like Koontz so this was worth it to me. It was worth the sale price, but silly me I used a whole credit on it.
