Publisher's Summary

No one could understand why Colin and Roy were best friends. Colin was so shy; Roy was so popular. Colin was nervous around girls; Roy was a ladies' man. Colin was fascinated by Roy - and Roy was fascinated by death.

Then one day Roy asked his timid friend: "You ever killed anything?" And from that moment on, the two were bound together in a game too terrifying to imagine...and too irresistible to stop.

    "Another Koontz hit!!"

    I have always found Dean Koontz to be an entertaining writer. He does not fail to entertain the reader and kept me wanting to read more in this novel once again. Although he stretches a couple of the scenes to be unbelievable, he recovers to keep me involved in the story and at times I had difficulty stopping to return at a later time.

    "Horrible narrator"

    The book wasn't so bad, but the narrator was agony! He read much too slow and too deliberately, sounded like he was reading a pre-school story to children...for 7 hours!

    I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read.

    "An unusual Koontz"

    An unusual Koontz. The characters are teens, there is no supernatural intervention, and there is (in this case thankfully) no dog. The narration was very good, and the story was interesting. This kept me involved in the story, but it was not Koontz at his best. There is a lot of setup followed by a swift conclusion. It was missing some of the high tension character development that Koontz does so well. It is still better than most in the genre.

    "Disappointing"

    This was disappointing in 2 respects - first, it lacked the usual "Koontzian" flare (written in 1980); second, the narrator was annoying to me. If you're expecting a nailbiter, pass on this book.

    "Don't waste a credit on this one"

    This has to be the worst Dean Koontz story of all time. It was one of a very few that I hadn't read and I was very disappointed that it was so boring and sexually descriptive.

    "What an amazingly good, simple story"

    This was superb, very simple story but excellently read and I found myself gripped from start to finish.
    There are characters in this book that you will want to shake by the ears... there are others that you will want to give a big hug too... Really, really good
