This is a fairly short and simple novel which is very predictable in most parts. There's not really any twists in this story and its quality does reflect that Koontz has had thirty years of writing experience since this book. You also wonder why they didn't just contact the police when they first encounter their pursuer in the flesh. Still it's an easy simple read that will only take you a few hours. This would also make an excellent novel for young people who are first moving from Junior Fiction to Adult Fiction.
This rewritten version of the 1973 short novel written under the pen name K.R. Dwyer is pretty similar to the earlier version with subtle changes like "the Russians are our friends now" and things like that in general conversations between the characters.
Only someone is following them, threatening and closing in. It;s true that this is not as complex as others, or as long, and it does not have a love story (except by proxy) but it makes up for all of that with tense suspense and action. This is a jewel - a miniature to be sure - but a real jewel.
Probably just for Koontz fans, and I firmly count myself as one.
