A bit long winded not his most suspenseful effort
on 16 August 2017
I think this is that rate thing - A Koontz novel I didn't read the first time around. It's an ok read but it's definitely doesn't compare to the thrills of novels such as 'Phantoms'. The idea has quite a lot of potential - but instead of focusing on Rachel's struggle for survival the novel is long winded and introduces lots of different elements - the crooked Federal agent which we've seen before, a couple of cops who play very little part other than filler and long descriptive passages which, while nicely written do nothing to add to the suspense. I got a little bored about halfway forward and started skipping whole chapters to get to the interesting bits as all I really wanted was to find out what happened. Not a bad read for 99p but if you are new to Koontz please don't judge him by this long-winded effort.
