    They found the town silent, apparently abandoned. Then they found the first body strangely swollen and still warm. One hundred fifty were dead, 350 missing. But the terror had only begun in the tiny mountain town of Snowfield, California.

    Overall

    One of the scariest Koontz novels I've listened to recently. Not a lot of psychological nuance (as in some of Koontz' later works), but downright chilling to listen to on a dark night when you're all alone. . .

    Robert McCall is a former covert operations officer for the CIA who tries to atone for past sins by offering, free of charge, his services as a troubleshooter (often literally), a protector, and an investigator. People in need find him through a newspaper ad: "Got a problem? Odds against you? Call the Equalizer.” Aided by a group of sometimes-mysterious contacts (some of whom date back to his spying days), McCall traverses the streets of New York City, visiting justice upon those who prey upon the weak.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    This is a reasonably well-written novel for its genre. Action was brisk. Narration was well done. Plot was sufficiently intriguing. Characters were interesting.

    HOWEVER, at times, it felt like a 21 hour long product-plug for Nike.

    Acknowledging that it is the novelization of a movie (which draws its roots from the TV series), by the tenth time the exact specifications of a particular Nike shoe worn by a character were described (color, model number), it was painfully obvious who the sponsors were. At one point, I was considering setting up a score card and playing "Nike model Bingo". By the end of the novel, this became an annoying distraction - and made me less likely than ever to purchase any Nike products.
