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. . .
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.
