But even more mysterious was the blond-haired stranger who appeared out of nowhere - the man who saved Laura from a fatal delivery.Years later - after another bolt of lightning - the stranger returned, again to save Laura from tragedy. Was he the guardian angel he seemed? The devil in disguise? Or the master of a haunting destiny beyond time and space?

One of Koontz' best, entirely enjoyable.

I am an occasional Dean Koontz fan, I've read several of his books and have had mixed opinions about them. I like his novels that have a more serious tone, like this one does. Not a lot of "boy-meets-girl" crap and corny dialogue, as in some of his novels. This is just a very well-crafted story that moves very smoothly along, with suspense in all the right places. Classic Koontz. I'm very glad I got this one, it was a good use of a credit.
The narrator did an excellent job, too. It was the first time I'd heard him, and I was very impressed with his skill.

I would not call this a horror, it is more in the line of B movie stuff. It reminded me a little of Life Expectancy and of the Frankenstein books, only better. When I say B Movie I do not mean stupid. This is intelligently written. By B movie, I mean he brings back all those things that you used to wonder about and go wow.

When DK is hitting on all cylinders such as in this book, then he throws everything in except the kitchen sink, and you never know which direction he is going to take you next. This book has Time Travelers, a Guardian Angel, Nazi's, junkies, lots of guns, lots of lightning, an eel, orphans, and a love story. DK even gets the love story right.

This is the best book I have listened to in over a year.
