Rated 5 out of 5★ by 3reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5★ by this book was amazing, i could not put it down, i took any excuse to keep reading it. it keeps you guessing until the very end. defiantly a book that i would recommend to anyone! 06/22/2011
Rated 5 out of 5★ by tense and creative wonderful book, suspenseful, thought provoking, creative, the end allows the reader to fill in some blanks and make connections, it's not as spelled out and literal as other books, but for that reason I think it makes this work closer to art. never a dull moment, highly recommended and makes me want to read another Koontz now :) 02/27/2014
