Summary:

In picturesque Moonlight Cove, California, inexplicable deaths occur and spine-tingling terror descends to this "edge of paradise." Growing numbers of residents harbor a secret so dark it is sure to cost even more lives. Tessa Lockland comes to town to probe her sister's seemingly unprompted suicide. Independent and clever, she meets up with Sam Booker, an undercover FBI agent sent to Moonlight Cove to discover the truth behind the mysterious deaths. They meet Harry Talbot, a wheelchair-bound veteran, who has seen things from his window that he was not meant to see. Together they begin to understand the depth of evil in Moonlight Cove. Chrissie Foster, a resourceful eleven-year-old, running from her parents who have suddenly changed and in whom darkness dwells, joins them. Together they make a stand against darkness and terror.

    This was a good listen. I recommend it if you don't have a series that you are into.

    Koontz at his best. Story is a little slow to start, but picks up and delivers at the end. Well worth the time.

    I liked this book. It was a bit strange and a bit slow to get going, but overall - it was good. In the end, I was really into the story. Give it time and it will get to you as well.

    Excellent book and narration. It kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time. It was hard to get out of the car after my commute because I wanted to hear what came next. I highly recommend this book.

    I love Dean Koontz as a writer but when he goes off on these strange tangents about space creatures. It just is not his style and does not work for him. The book becomes boring and unable to read.

    Once again, Koontz is hit or miss with his books. This was a miss for me, but it was a close one. The action begins from early on in Disc 1 and keeps going fairly steadily; however, Koontz gets bogged down in inner turmoil and philosophizing and by the end I was really begging for it all to be over. The ending, in fact, is pretty anticlimactic, as far as Koontz books go. His usual angel/demon issues are at play again, with physical handicaps and especially war veterans being the angels, and computers/technology, metal music, and 'unhappy' people being the demons of the world. The preaching was kept to a minimum in the first half of books but by the end the long speeches on the lack of responsibility in the world (athiests, war protestors, tech geeks were singled out) was wearying.

    Dean Koontz is there anything more that needs to be said? Great read and the reader was very good. Very intense ending and well it is a Dean Koontz book.

    Generally I can make myself listen to the entire first CD, no matter how bad things are at first, just to be sure that the the story doesn't finally get moving. Not this time. Perhaps it was the narrator, but I found myself preferring commercial radio and car dealership ads.

    The story line and plot is fabulous, and because of that, I'm continuing on with the story, but the narrator is so bad I can hardly stand it. He's far to "chipper" a reader for a horror, his inflection is bad, and his cadence sucks. I specifically wrote is name down on a sticky and will never again rent an audio book narrated by this guy. Such a shame too, because this a great story.

    I found this to be up to Mr. Koontz's standards. Well written, and the plot was executed very well. Just when you thought you had it figured out, you find you don't. I would recommend this to any mystery buff. I love books and audio books. And this is one good work.
