Koontz at his best
This is one of Koontz's best books. In classic Koontz fashion, there are surprising twists and turns and a tantalizing plot that compelled this reader to burn the midnight oil. The characters are finely drawn and likable, except the villain, of course, who is utterly , satisfyingly vile and one of Koontz's most memorable creeps. His intellectual justification for his evil deeds and his arrogance are sickening. This is one character you will not feel neutral towards. Those characters that aren't believable (female twins who are highly intelligent, rich and stunningly beautiful) are, nonetheless, highly enjoyable. One of the most endearing characters is a handicapped child who has been through personal hell, yet her curiosity and zest for life are undimmed. Koontz's novel focus on the familiar theme of good vs. evil, but not in a trite, predictable way. This one is fun, original, and an all round great yarn.
