Publisher's Summary

Harry Lyon was a rational man, a cop who refused to let his job harden his soul. Then one fateful day, he was forced to shoot a man--and a homeless stranger with bloodshot eyes uttered the haunting words that challenged Harry Lyon's sanity: "Ticktock, ticktock. You'll be dead in sixteen hours...Dead by dawn...Dead by dawn...Dead by dawn..."

Imperfect but still Koontz

Dragon Tears is not one of my favorite Koontz, but it is not bad. The story is a little preachier than I like and the story is a little Koontz-formulaic. That formula has a mildly interesting supernatural bad guy, strong female cop, a conflicted male cop, a very good dog, and other assorted characters. I found the powers of the bad guy over the top. After a nice setup the story concludes too rapidly without a resounding ending. So, it you love Koontz, give it a try.

Great book

I have read this possibly a couple of times. Listening to it confirms my suspicion that I am a 'skimmer' reader! I rush reading passages as I really want to know what comes next. I am being pleasantly surprised with audiobooks in that they sound like a story I may have read about rather than actually read. Thoroughly enjoyed this and narration was good. Really liked that he read slightly faster at the exciting parts bit like I would've read it! I love Dean Koontz and am happily looking forward to listening to more that I've previously read.
