Publisher's Summary

A storm struck on the night Laura Shane was born, and there was a strangeness about the weather that people would remember for years. But even more mysterious was the blond-haired stranger who appeared out of nowhere - the man who saved Laura from a fatal delivery.

Years later - after another bolt of lightning - the stranger returned, again to save Laura from tragedy. Was he the guardian angel he seemed? The devil in disguise? Or the master of a haunting destiny beyond time and space?

    "Lightening Is a winner"

    "Lightening" is excellent from beginning to end. The narrator is outstanding and enhances the book.Koontz makes science fiction so believable, especially with how he develops the male protagonist and his origins. A great listen. One of Koontz's best....

    "Wonderful listen!"

    I thought the whole book was great! The narrator was great. I had a good time listening while cleaning house and cooking, I looked forward to listening on the weekends!! This was my first real experience with audible and I will be doing it more often.
    Thanks Audible

    "Great Book!"

    I very much enjoyed this book. I would have ended it maybe 10 minutes sooner, but the story line kept me hooked and hanging on to see what would happen next. Good narrator, good story, worth the cost of the download.

    "This one had me after about 30 mins"

    Having only ever read one other Dean Koontz, "Tick Tock." I was surprised by this book.. I had heard that he only wrote kinda campy supernatural stuff.. SOO NOT TRUE! This book was a heck of a ride into the Sci-Fi-esk style. Loved it!

    "Excellent, Excellent, Excellent"

    This is one of the best Dean Koontz books.
    The story pulls you in, the characters keep you emotionally tied, and the pace keeps you on the edge.

    "Lighting"

    This is the first time I read a book by Dean Koonz and I have to say it's really good. I enjoyed reading Lighting a lot. I think the nirator is great too. When I started reading, I couldn't stop. I wanted to see what will happen to Lora, Christ and Stephon. I cant wait to read another Dean Koonz book.

    "A good read"

    This was a good mystery. I got a little lost in the time sequences but not very and not enough for me to move on to something else. The reader was good too. This one should not disappoint.
