At first the cops thought they were dealing with a psychopath. But soon they heard eerie sounds in the ventilation system - and saw unearthly silver eyes in the snow-slashed night.
In a city paralyzed by a blizzard, something watches, something stalks.

"Swift, entertaining...a classic race to the rescue." (Publishers Weekly)
He is one of my favorite writers and I'm really glad they are putting his older works on audio. I'm not into VooDoo but this book was a real page turner! It was very easy to listen to and the narrator did an Excellent job with the voices and "supernatural" sounds. I highly recommend this one.
Excellent listen - oddly enough my first Dean Koontz book. Dean is an amazing writer, but I found myself wishing there was a bit more to this universe. It was a very short book and I wish that Dawson's character was better utilized after he discovered his potential.
Regardless, a great listen.
As always, Dean Koontz delivers suspense and intrigue on a grand scale. As an author myself (novel comes out next year) I'm always in awe of Koontz's style and literary genius. Simply put, there isn't a better writer out there!
Say something about yourself!
Very good Koontz. I was easily sucked in and surprised by how I couldn't wait to get back to hear more. Some people bashed it but it's definitely worth a credit.
This book keeps you at the edge of your seat just like most of Dean Koontz books do!! The guy who reads the book has an amazing talent and gives each character their own voice!! And for the creepy people of the book it gives your listening experience an exciting ride !!
Tell us about yourself! I am addicted to Audio Books I read them all the time in the car, doing dishes, ironing, What ever.
Well told story the reader was really good. Kept the tension and excitement high.
I love books and animals.I enjoy all sorts of genres, anything from history to supernatural.
The plot of this book is a little off the beat (concerning voodoo). However I still found this to be a good listen with a good pace and character development.
I gave it 4 starts because the ending (I thought) was a bit open, it didn't tie the ends as much as I would have liked. But overall this tale is suspenseful.
Christopher Lane does an excellent job as a narrator.
This is one of those books that I would gladly listen to more than once. It is detailed without being drawn out or boring. I enjoyed the drama that unfolded around the hero's children who are at the heart of this story. If you love science fiction, you'll love this yarn about the supernatural. If you're curious about the supernatural, this one will whet your appetite. If you're a fan of Dean Koontz, he won't let you down. I feel as though he put some of his best efforts into this one.
PLOT: Voodoo power scares up some goblins to come after a good guy. Thrills galore.
Jack has two small children that become the "target" of a Voodoo Master who summons the power of Evil and opens the gates of hell. Horrific yes. .....Jack is a policeman and widower. He becomes romantically linked to his partner Rebecca. When a Voodoo Curse gives the power to sick "evil goblins" like creatures to kill his children Jack must find a way to stop the evil. I was not a big horror fan til this book. The "goblins' are detailed and the chase to get the children is spelled out in a very scary way to keep you on the edge of your seat. Just when you think someone is safe they return. This starts slow and the last half of the book is super exciting. Koontz is the master of details and he has you guessing all the way. the READER is excellent and can do many accents that needed to keep the story moving along. ONE of the BEST of the early Koontz stories. I liked it. GREAT 4 STAR audiobook.
I wrote a review on another Dean Koonz book that, believe it or not, wasn't very good. The name of that book was Lightening. This book however, is excellent. It moves fast and the narrator is awesome. His Jamaican dialect is on the mark. My advise....GET THIS BOOK.
A very good story well told
A very enjoyable story, well read. It's your standard Koontz stuff, no better or worse than anything else he's written. An entertaining horror story about voodoo.
