    He's Hollywood's most dazzling star, who is worshiped by millions and hated by one twisted soul. His existence is under siege as a series of terrifying, enigmatic "messages" breaches the security systems of his Bel Air estate. The boxes arrive mysteriously, one by one, at Channing Manheim's compound. Manheim's security chief, ex-cop Ethan Truman, is used to looking beneath the surface of things. But until he entered the orbit of a Hollywood icon, he had no idea just how slippery reality could be.

    Peggie says: "Entertaining"
    "A deluge of adjectives and metaphors"
    Overall

    Being a Koontz fan (particularly of Intensity and Mr. Murder), I anticipated The Face to be extremely entertaining. Two things quickly became apparent. Part of the joy of reading a mystery comes from attempting to figure out where the story is going. As soon as the supernatural was introduced into the story, all bets were off. I could no longer take even the slightest guess at what may happen. Also, throughout the book, the reading is bogged down by rich, heaping piles of adjectives and metaphors, most of which add little or nothing to the reader's understanding. The narrator, Dylan Baker, sounded at times as if he was as bored as I was. Eliminating the useless verbiage would reduce the 19+ hour book to something around 13 hours. The book was ok - not bad, not good - just ok.
