Anyway, Colin is a shy and quiet, friendless, boy who loves to read and watch movies. His parents are divorced and he lives with his mother who is almost never home and does not seem to have much if any time for him.
He strikes up a friendship with Roy, or more specifically Roy chooses to strike up a relationship with him. Roy is a disturbed and twisted individual who enjoys torture and killing.
I would probably have rated this 5 stars if Koontz had not made the mother such a senseless flipping moron who would rather believe outrageous stories about her son with no proof and so easily having the wool pulled over her eyes by an Eddie Haskell type fake politeness. Therefore, 4 out of 5 stars from me.
My main problem with this story is that it was too drawn out. As a shorter story, with less building of the unimportant (to me) characters and scenes, this may have been much better.
This was a great work by a master of the written word! I would highly recommend to Dean Koontz fans and other readers who would enjoy a good and scary book that will stay with you long after you have read the final word.
I also did like that the main characters were young adults. That is one of the aspects about his writing that drew me in many years ago, that his hero's & heroines can be woman, children even animals instead of always men! Not that I mind when his protagonists are adult men, but it's nice to have the variety!
It's an interesting story and I recommend it to any Dean Koontz fan, but maybe for a new reader start with "Watchers"
Best friends until Colin quickly finds out how deeply troubled & murderous Roy is. Colin's mom is a bit too busy for him & disbelieving of his stories of Roy.
The novel wends it's way into how Roy became the way he is and how he's eventually stopped.
The story does reflect on real life in some cases. The plot is simple & Mr. Koontz, leaving his supernatural world behind, turns a simple plot into a very good novel
