Description

#1 NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

In the late summer of a long-ago year, Alton Turner Blackwood brutally murdered four families. His savage spree ended only when he himself was killed by the last survivor of the last family, a fourteen-year-old boy.

Half a continent away and two decades later, someone is murdering families again, re-creating in detail Blackwood’s crimes. Homicide detective John Calvino is certain that his own family—his wife and three children—will be targets, just as his parents and sisters were victims on that distant night when he was fourteen and killed their slayer.

As a detective, John is a man of reason who deals in cold facts. But an extraordinary experience convinces him that sometimes death is not a one-way journey, that sometimes the dead return.

Includes the bonus novella Darkness Under the Sun and an excerpt from Dean Koontz's The City!


From Publishers Weekly

Oct 25, 2010 – In this less than suspenseful supernatural thriller from Koontz (Breathless), 14-year-old Billy Lucas's inexplicable slaughter of his entire family awakens the fears of homicide detective John Calvino, who as a child was the sole survivor of a similar family massacre. Though Calvino slayed the fiend who did the deed, he has always worried that the killings were demonic in nature and that the evil spirit responsible would return and harm his wife and three children. Sure enough, after Calvino visits the psychiatric ward where Lucas is held, something starts to haunt every member of his close-knit clan, though improbably and conveniently they all fail to share this disturbing development with each other. The detective believes he has a deadline to thwart the force bent on repeating the earlier murders. The terror level never reaches that of similarly themed works such as the movie Fallen. Clunky prose (e.g., Andy Tane, a cop, "is figuratively and literally a horse") doesn't help.

Customer Reviews

Great book

This was a great book! My eyes and brain were hooked from chapter one. I read it in 4 days because I couldn't put it down. However, don't read it before bed. Lol looking forward to another Dean Koontz book!

He just keeps getting better!

I've been a Dean Koontz fan since "Watchers" and here I am, aging gracefully (so I tell myself) and I'm watching Mr. Koontz do the same. He knows his subject matter: truth, beauty, goodness. Those three words are interchangeable and Mr. Koontz knows how to weave them into a tale that made me cry and rejoice. Guilt FREE pleasure from start to finish! (and this is my first ever, and very fitting, e-book purchase...what a brave new world)

Grrr

Great read, don't read alone at night while the family sleeps.
