this is something like #75 from koontz for me. very first story of his i read, Mr. Murder...paperback that one...early nineties when i read it. and at some point, i picked up a copy of The Dean Koontz Companion and discovered therein that koontz has a pile of titles that are not included on that "also by dean koontz" page, say like at the front-end of mr. murder.

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

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 is an entertaining detective story with a science-fictional setting. Published in 1973, this book was issued as a paperback original, before Koontz made it big. Probably this book is mostly of interest to Koontz collectors or vintage paperback collectors.

A slow start, but a good ending. Still in the science fiction genre, but the horror is starting to come through

Shelves: sci-fi
"A Werewolf Among Us" is pretty much a murder mystery with a bit of sci-fi tech added to the mix. I agree with other reviews that this early work by Koontz shows promise but it's obvious he hadn't reach his full potential yet. A lot of the writing felt like he was trying to hard -- it wasn't the effortless narrative he later develops.

Even though I had figured out who the murderer was half-way through, it's still a worthwhile read. The plotting is good and he introduces the interesting concept of

A fun plot spinner that makes a reader realize how much a master Stephen King is.

One of Koontz's earlier works before he found his niche--not very good.
