DON'T LISTEN ALONE!,
This review is from: Cold Fire (Audio Cassette)
Ever notice that when you're getting ready to listen to an audiobook you often choose one to fit your mood? For instance, if you want to be a little cheered up you may choose a comedy or if you would like a bit of history you opt for one that tells exciting stories about the past. Further, you may even select a place or time of day to listen. At our house I do not listen to Dean Koontz when I'm alone at night. This master of the macabre dispenses chills and shivers faster than a surprise winter blizzard.
Cold Fire is a case in point with its frightening dose of the paranormal . It's read with authority and skill yet little of the "performing art." That's not needed - Koontz's story does it all.
Jim Ironhart is a man obsessed - compelled to save people's lives. He's saved a dozen from certain death in the past three months and reporter Holly Thorne knows there's a story here.. What's driving this man? He has strange, unexplainable visions. Holly and Jim look to the past in their effort to find answers.
However, that past is a dark, frightening place. Don't go there (or listen) alone!
