The Face Press Reviews

'Uplifting enough to make Cain repent ... There is scarcely an author alive who loves the English language more .. whose sentences offer more musicality ... the tale's grandeur and strong lines ... characters are memorable and his unique mix of suspense and humour absorbing... great kudos to Koontz for creating, within the strictures of popular fiction, another notable novel of ideas and of moral imperatives ... Look for this to hit #1' Publishers Weekly`Koontz flexes his muscles and sets forth like a demigod to create his most strongly anchored novel since 1995's Intensity, a work sheathed with darkness and wreathed with wiry metaphor ... hundreds of pages of top-drawer suspense' Kirkus Reviews'Dean Koontz is not just a master of our darkest dreams, but also a literary juggler' The Times`Psychologically complex, masterly and satisfying.' The New York Times`Koontz has near-Dickensian powers of description, and an ability to yank us from one page to the next that few novelists can match.' Los Angeles Times`Koontz has once again proven why he is one of the premier novelists of his generation.' Amazon.co.uk
