Classic Koontz. Interesting concept. Well executed.

On the other hand, nothing much new, though.

There's a wonderfully horrific dark being that you almost have to take pity on in the end.

There's a dog. A really smart dog. Basically a human confined within a dog. But still a lovely dog.

There's an assassin. There's a person that's not quite square with the world around him. There are interesting main characters and well rounded sub-characters. There's romance. Albeit not much, but it's there.

There are those running from the law for the right reasons and those running for the wrong ones. There are those trying their best to uphold the law whether they think it's for the best or not.

A little science fiction and science fact. A lot of tension and suspense balanced with a decent amount of humor and light moments.

I still think the "Odd" books are my favorite Koontz novels, but this certainly ranks just below them.

Debbie Scoccia Loved it because of the dog. Now I need to see the movie.

Mary lovely review or rating or whatever. Unique, informative and fresh. Thank you. I love the Odd Thomas series, and have read little else of Koontz over the years.
