There was far more to the story than in the movie. It has good character development of the main figures in the story. I liked the amount of detail to support the premise of the story and develop the action. The story flowed well.
I liked that Hilary was a fairly strong character. She knows what she wants and how to take care of herself but it is also her weakness.
There were some minor flaws but they do not detract from the action. The old mansion was built on a site that was almost inaccessible so how did they get workmen and materials up to such a remote site. Despite Katherine's complicated story, in a small town, there would always be one or two busybodies who would have suspicions and there would have to have been some gossip. I'm also not so sure an experienced detective would have let himself and two civilians walk into a potentially dangerous situation or access a house where there was possible evidence in an active crime investigation, even to air it out.
Still these did not detract from the overall suspense of the story. It was a work of suspense, not a study on police techniques or true crime.
It was entertaining and it filled in a lot of details left out of the movie that tied the story together.
The other characters are very good also. All of them. Now that is rare, not to find one character in a book you do not like.
Next is the story. It is simply just flat out a great story. Well told and well written. Add the top notch group of characters and you get one hell of a book.
This is my third Koontz book and it is by far the best so far. Not that the others were bad, Shattered and Watchers, on the contrary they were very good also but not on par with this great novel. Quite simply this is a must read, PERIOD!
