    In Broken Harbor, all but one member of the Spain family lies dead, and it’s up to Mick “Scorcher” Kennedy to find out why. Mick must piece together why their house is full of cameras pointed at holes in the walls and how a nighttime intruder bypassed all the locks. Meanwhile, the town of Broken Harbor holds something else for Mick: disturbing memories of a childhood summer gone terribly wrong.

    If you could sum up Broken Harbor in three words, what would they be?

    Strong, and sometimes shocking story. A reminder that down turn economics of the day, does not stop at the U.S. shores


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    There were many so twists and turns, the story held my attention through out.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The wifes detail of the slow disintergration of her family as a whole and each individual
    felt very plauible and was nicely done.


    Any additional comments?

    French's ability to plug into the male characters, and her unblinking details of events kept me thinking that this must be written by a male. I have listened to the other books available on Audible, but still checked to ensure it was the same writer.

    I was a little disappointed to find that the none of the main characters from the other books were intergrated into the storyline. But once I got plugged in to the story it did not diminish my enjoyment.

    What would have made Winter Moon better?

    This story may have been saved with a major rewrite, including a lot more character development on all sides and a lot less poetic license. Fans of Koontz are use to being shocked, and sometimes repulsed, but there needs to be a build up to those emotions. I am always hesitant when selecting anything that looks to be a rehash of older works from this author, before he found his stride. The published works under another name, should now be offered as a Koontz work. I really consider a lot of these works practice books.The stories and this story is particular just don't hold together. The threads of the story are just thrown together and don't make sense. I found myself asking why are the events and the extraordinary talents of the characters happening now. From now on I will only be selecting newer stories written. Koontz has as an imagination and style that I gravitate to, but only for the books he has written within the last 10 years.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    The most current offerings of the author


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Christopher Lane?

    Yes


    What character would you cut from Winter Moon?

    I would not cut any characters. but would have expanded on several to make sense of the events and relationships of the characters.
