Publisher's Summary

Strange days....
Winter gripped the city. Terror gripped it, too. They found four corpses in four days, each more hideous than the last.

Strange nights....
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.

Final hours....
In a city paralyzed by a blizzard, something watches, something stalks.

    "Loved it!"

    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.

    "Good Listen"

    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.

    "Awesome !!"

    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 !!

    "Leaves you wanting more"

    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.

    "Dean Koontz Delivers"

    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!

    "Edge of Your Seat Listen"

    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.

    "Love the Koontz!"

    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.

    "Really good listen!!!"

    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.

    "Unique and interesting prospective on things."

    Dean Koontz brings the characters to life and makes the most out of normal situations. His descriptive narrative and imagery make this an excellent listen. The ending is well worth the wait, as usual.
