Koontz is an odd one. Each of his books seems to begin with a long comic dialogue between two characters, before swerving left into a thriller. But I suspect, were he to try it, he’d be a better comic writer than a thriller one. His novels are resolutely linear, with heroes who win simply because they are morally pure in the face of evil so black that he doesn’t need to invest it with any psychological plausibility. They’re fast paced, gripping reads but I’d love to read a non-thriller comic novel from him - I reckon it’d be brilliant.
