Publisher's Summary

He was clinically dead after the accident - but was miraculously revived. Now Hatch Harrison and his wife approach each day with a new appreciation for life.

But something has come back with Hatch from the other side: a terrible presence that links his mind to a psychotic's, so that a force of murderous rage courses through him.

What the Critics Say

"Fiercely exciting...a slam-bang finale." (Kirkus Reviews)
"A dual reading by Michael Hanson and Carol Cowan heightens the drama in a way the written word could never achieve. With this narrative choice, readers receive a clear, strong and effective audio horror story which is just about impossible to stop listening to." (The Bookwatch)

    "First Knootz"

    THis is my first of Mr. Knootz books. I enjoyed it, although it did drag in some areas. However, that aside, I look forward to hearing more of his works.

    "Hideaway"

    Vassago (I heard Massago?) is the most singularly evil character I have encountered in a long while. Delicious. Carol Cowen's Regina was perfect. Last quarter of the book seemed to drag on a bit, and I was hoping for a more painful end for the villain.

    Story
    "Another nail-biter from Koontz"
    If you could sum up Hideaway in three words, what would they be?

    Hang on tight.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The complete development of the characters.


    What about Michael Hanson and Carol Cowan ’s performance did you like?

    The ability to pronounce words most of us would trip on. They never missed a beat as their pacing was excellent.


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

    The pre-adoption meeting.


    Any additional comments?

    As always, Koontz is a master of suspense and you never know what's around the next corner.

    Story
    "NEW AGE MUSIC IS FOR THOSE WHO FIND ELEVATOR MUSIC"

    TOO COMPLICATED.
    ONE OF THE VIRTUES OF THE DEAD WAS PATIENCE.
    I am Mr. Impatience and I almost gave out during the first two hours. The first two hours describes a car accident, but it is described in poetry form. The colorful, flowery words, served mostly to draw out a 15 minute event into two hours. After that things got a lot better. The story got more interesting with a very unusual bad guy and the poetry stopped. The bad guy is the star of the show and you want to stay long enough to hear about his childhood and how he started killing.

    THE DEAD STAY DEAD AND THE LIVING ONLY WANT TO JOIN THEM
    I am a Koontz fan and some of his books will live in my mind forever. I enjoyed this book as I listened to it, but I guarantee you that a month from now, I will not, without some help, remember the story line of this book. It has been a couple of days and I had to read my notes to remember what it was about. This was written in 1992, as Koontz was coming out of his boring, preachy books and moving more into suspense. There is some preaching in this and some interesting questions about death. If you can get this on sale, I would say go ahead, but I would not waste a credit.

    Kramer and Read have been around for a while, but before them there was Hanson and Cowen. They have done a lot of books together and most of them are on tape. Anytime you get a chance to hear them, you should take it, they make all books better.

    "Enjoyable but forgettable."

    A few good and tense scenes retreat into a hideaway between too many monologues read in just a little too much of a monotone.

    "Might have been great."
    What did you like best about Hideaway? What did you like least?

    The story hooked me from the start. Very intense. The narrators were so bad, that I can't finish listening to the story. I'll read the book instead.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Michael Hanson and Carol Cowan ’s performances?

    NEVER


    Any additional comments?

    I'll update the review after I finish reading. I love Koontz.

    Story
    "Disappointing"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The story doesn't flow well it goes from one 'scene' with a serial killer to the next a doctor bringing someone back from the dead, there's no segue-way, no chapter change nothing. One minute you'll be listening to the doctor working on bringing someone back to life and then in the very same breath you'll be hearing about a serial killer and his victims. I have ADD and even for me this was a hard story to track because of how often the story jumped around. Normally I don't mind a story that does this but this one just doesn't carry one story long enough or even change chapters to let the listener know there is "scene change." This book had the potential to be a good listen but fell short in the end.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Dark Witch by Nora Roberts


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Couldn't make it through the whole book so


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The narrator was good and did a good job reading the story


    Any additional comments?

    This is the 2nd book by Dean Koontz that I have been disappointed in, think I might stick with his newer work from now on.

    Story
    "I did not want to put the book down!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes the story in so very engrossing and change of narrators is refreshing.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hideaway?

    When the arch angel became apparent


    What does Michael Hanson and Carol Cowan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Refreshing perspectives.


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

    Any time Regina was talking or thinking


    Any additional comments?

    This is a wonderful book. I was sad to hear it end.
