This was a very early sci-fi novel by Koontz. You could tell he was still finding his voice, but this tale is a fun little romp about a detective that wears a symbiotic apparatus that helps him do his detective work and the werewolf bent on destroying a wealthy and extremely troubled family. It is definitely not up to future Koontz standards, but I enjoyed it nonetheless.

this was before goodreads, before i was "on-line"...and although i looked for these early stories both in bookstores (used books-stores

And I know this night so well
'cause I have walked from here to hell
The only thing I can never tell
Is why they put me under the spell
Under the spell...

A fun plot spinner that makes a reader realize how much a master Stephen King is.
Bill Davis
One of Koontz's earlier works before he found his niche--not very good.

Didn't care for it. Hard to get into. Disappointed in overall.
