This is an exciting novel, completely in the tradition of Dean Koontz who truly knows how to build one scene upon another of suspense and building questions - then to satisfyingly exhale (as it were) the resolutions and the answers, the relief to tension, one question at a time or more often all at once...
In this novel the 'mystery' is the question of who exactly is after an innocent little eight year old boy and why. The action consists of trying to protect both the boy (Joey) and his mother (Christine) in what becomes an all out hunt for little Joey. Charlie who - in his capacity as the private investigator hired by Joey'm mother Christine - gradually learns the terrifying truth of the cult's beliefs, beliefs which are the dictatorial prerogative of holy visionary Grace Spivey. It is she, the heart and soul of her church and her loyal followers, who spots Joey one day outside a supermarket and believes so thoroughly that she has seen the unmistakeable aura of the anti-christ that she orders her follows to hunt him down and show no mercy - they must kill him
I really enjoyed this novel - I believe that in the hands of the right director, it would make a wonderful film.
