If you like Dean Koontz you will not be disappointed by this book. If you have never read any of his books what are you waiting for.
The relationship between the main characters, an ex homicide detective and the young boy he has to protect, builds throughout the book. As does the threat to both of their lives. This makes for an exciting finish to the book, you really don't know who will survive.
Dean Koontz just keeps getting better! cant wait for his next book!
