The Ugly: There are two instances in the book, just two but enough to drown out the book, where Mr. Koontz made one paragraph a complete sentence. All he did was kept saying “and” over and over again. It was like a complete rookie mistake. I don’t think he could have made that as a conscious effort. It was two run-on sentences that lasted almost an entire page.
The Bad: Even though there is an epic twist in the book, it was one you could see coming from miles away. There were way too many red herrings in the book to count. You could see them the second you read them. The only reason I’m not putting this as “the ugly” is because of the nice twist.
The Good: The story is best part here except for the obviousness of who the killer is. I’m not trying to give too much away because of the surprise, but just know, out of the works he has written up to this point this is the best story. Hopefully the writing gets better.
Final Thoughts: I was going to give this a 4-star rating, but those two sentences that ran for most of a page took away from the book. They aren’t until towards the end of the book, but enough to hurt the book. I would say read it.
Mary Bergen is a psychic that uses her abilities to help the police. With a serial killer on the loose, Mary begins having terrifying visions of murder victims who seem strangely familiar. She knows the answers lie buried in her past, rooted in the torture she endured at the tender age of 6. With her new husband, Max and her ever-faithful brother, Alan by her side, Mary must find answers fast before she ends up being the killer's next victim. Further complicating the situation, Alan and Max hate each other. Each is distrustful of the other and both are possessive of Mary's time and attention.
You can definitely tell this is one of Koontz' earlier works as it's a bit predictable, even bordering on trite at times. Even so, I thoroughly enjoyed the book. It's short for a Koontz novel and fast paced which makes for an easy read. I was pretty sure I knew "whodunit" within the first 100 pages but the "why" was much harder to figure out. Overall, I'd say there are enough twists and turns in this book to keep most readers satisfied.
I really liked the book, most definitely...love Dean Koontz!!
