Publisher's Summary

Such a pretty face....
So young, so sweet. She appeared out of nowhere, in the middle of traffic, on a busy day. A teenager with no past, no family - no memories.
Such a lovely child....
So blond and beautiful. Carol and Paul were drawn to her – she was the child they’d never had. A dream come true. And then Carol’s nightmares began – the ghastly sounds in the night…the bloody face in the mirror…the razor-sharp ax.
Such a relentless evil....So deceptively innocent. Most mothers would die for such a darling little angel. And that’s what frightened Carol most of all.

Great story. Poor narration

How does a great book and fantastic writer get a poor rating? Hire an inexperienced narrator. The inflections in Natalie Ross's voice while telling this great story make it difficult to concentrate on anything except the cadence…like she is short of breath. I am going back to hardcover on this one.

Sorry Mr. Koontz. I love your body of work. I have been listening to and have been reading your books for years. I have never had a bad experience until now.

Awful narrator

I downloaded the book to my I-touch and tried to listen to it in my car, as usual. The voice of the narrator is so bad that both my wife and I could not understand more than 2 of every 3 words she read. Not possible to listen to it in the car. Full volume did not help. So I tried it at home in a very quiet environment, on a very good stereo. Same result. This is the worst reading of a book that I have ever had the experience to try listening to. I have no idea if the story is any good, because I can't hear it. Very frustrating! Total waste of money. All the other books I have ever downloaded from Audible have turned out just fine, so I know it is not just my issue.
