I am a big fan of Dean Koontz and have been reading his books for over fifteen years. After joining Audible I became a Koontz listener and have been very pleased with the materials downloaded up to now.
The plot of this book seemed intriguing but proved not to be so. It takes a long time to get going. There is only a slight air of mystery created (in the middle of the book) and no fear and suspense at all. At one point I almost gave up listening but persevered and listened to it through to the end.
If you like your Koontz bloody or mysterious this book is not for you and you must seek elsewhere.

I can't imagine a Mystery/Suspense reader being disappointed in this book. The action grabs you fast, right up front and pins you until the end. It's exceptionally well written; Koontz has the talent to emotionally hook the reader, then, like the undertow in the ocean, you discover how dangerous the waters really are. To put it more plainly, the human condition is revealed in much of its nakedness and readers are left affected and possibly somewhat disturbed. I will read it again, and soon.

Dean Koontz is normally one of my favorite authors. Half way through the book I was hoping the protagonist would die so the book would move on to someone more interesting. I could not wait for this book to be over. If you do ignore the negative reviews (like I did), check to see if your player has a fast play speed to minimize the pain.
