"Devil's Hand" tells the story of Trent Hawkins, a man whose supernatural luck put him on the wrong side of the table with the casinos and their owners in Las Vegas. After a few years away, Hawkins finds himself going back to the city with his wife Susan and, as presaged by a flat tire during a hailstorm that ends with fish falling from the sky and splattering blood all over, things immediately start going wrong.
For starters, something very bad is boiling right beneath the city's surface and a serial kidnapper is terrifying residents. When Hawkins visits an old friend to inquire about a job, some shady characters are questioning a friendly acquaintance. Later Hawkins receives a piece of advice: get out of the city. A few pages later Hawkins is bringing Susan her purse at work when the novel kicks into high gear and the fun starts.
The first explosion ends with Hawkins and his wife rescuing a strange, thirteen year-old girl who's allergic to water and running out into the worst blizzard in Las Vegas' history. From then on, the fate of the city, their lives and the balance of the eternal war between good and evil will hang in the balance and Hawkins will have to learn that his luck is something that runs way deeper than he could have ever imagined.Read more ›
This was promoted as a good book for Dean Koontz fans, and I can sort of understand why, but where Koontz uses words to set a mood and an environment, many of this author's words seemed to be thrown in to lengthen the book. Some, not all, of the dialogue was stilted; the verbiage setting the scenes had me flipping pages with just glances so I could get through the book before I got too annoyed to finish it. Contrast that with Koontz who creates a word picture that brings the emotions and environment to life - eerie life - but strongly felt.
The end was a major disappointment because it was clearly setting up a sequel and left many issues unaddressed. Sadly, I wasn't interested enough in the characters, or the plot, to read a second book by this author.
Ok, not the speed the main character drives. Instead, from opening the Amazon delivery package to finishing off the final (315th) page in just over 5 hours. Good thing I didn't start it at my normal reading hour, after 10 PM. I can't afford another night lost to hypnotic fiction.
While not normally one to read a book cover to cover in one sitting, this one certainly grabbed me, at times literally leaving me woozy from the sense of roller coastering through Las Vegas, above and below.
Hefty, complicated antagonists, and at least one monster that leaves you trying to sort out how YOU would deal with its trixy physics, as you race to escape it, running alongside the main characters.
While the story rings true and new, I also kept getting flashes of images from elsewhere. A bit of Oceans 11 ... or Oceans 666? Dante Alighieri's infernal domains in vivid, whispering grey on gray; Matrix special effects; Dune visions; nifty nuances of many religious traditions; all blended into a superb, saucy mix.
A very satisfying read, while it also leaves you wanting another helping.
You'll be rendered speechless...

I think a horror fan would emjoy this but I prefer a lighter fanasy style so skipped through a lot of pages to get to the next story point. Some interesting ideas but not my style.Published on June 13, 2013 by Barbara Penton
