Another first following from the Srephen King experience earlier in the year. Apparently, this is not typical of the author though it does mix the supernatural in a thriller setting. Character development was a little flat and the heroine and hero a little too good to be true while the villains were just bad. some of the imagery is rather overblown - " In the sky's distillery, the afternoon kight was a weak brandy" being a particularly noteworthy example. The various strands from the early chapters and skil;fully brought together and the book is a good read. I shall eventually try others.
I'm obviously having a pernicious effect on your choice of reading - but there are some treats amongst both Koontz and King
