An ordinary parking lot in southern California. Christine Scavello and her six-year-old son are accosted by a strange old woman. "I know who you are," the woman snaps at the boy. "I know what you are." A scream, a threat - and then a grotesque act of violence. Suddenly Christine's pride and joy, her only son, is targeted by a group of religious fanatics. They've branded him the Antichrist. They want to kill him. And they are everywhere.

I've read most of Dean Koontz' books over the past several decades and this is the first one I totally lost interest in. I'm not sure if it was just the narrator's nasal whiney voice or not, but I really didn't enjoy it.

When an 11-year-old boy is found murdered, forensic evidence and reliable eyewitnesses undeniably point to the town's popular Little League coach. But the jailed suspect, arrested in a public spectacle, has an alibi, and further research convinces Detective Ralph Anderson that the coach was indeed out of town. So how can he have been in two places at the same time?

Started off as a murder mystery and ran as such for the first half of the book, before King slipped back to toe and introduced his trademark supernatural twist.

The plot occasionally frustrated me. All together, though, it was a very enjoyable book. I'd be happy to find more of Terry's works.

In the early days of April 1941, the 14,000 Australian forces garrisoned in the Libyan town of Tobruk were told to expect reinforcements and supplies within eight weeks. Eight months later these heroic, gallant, determined "Rats of Tobruk" were rescued by the British Navy having held the fort against the might of Rommel's never-before-defeated Afrika Corps.

I had the pleasure of meeting a 96 year old veteran who was a Rat Of Tobruk and writing a poem for him, based on some of his experiences. So many of his stories were expanded on in this amazing book. My respect for his story and the stories and sacrifices made by all servicemen has increased exponentially with the reading of this.

First came the days of the plague. Then came the dreams. Dark dreams that warned of the coming of the dark man. The apostate of death, his worn-down boot heels tramping the night roads. The warlord of the charnel house and Prince of Evil. His time is at hand. His empire grows in the west and the Apocalypse looms. For hundreds of thousands of fans who read The Stand in its original version and wanted more, this new edition is Stephen King's gift.

I wish I'd read the other online reviews before wasting my money on this book. I have previously enjoyed his other books, with the exception of deception point. I listen during my two and a half hour each way commute every day, so his books are usually a good way of switching to mental autopilot. This one, however frustrated me more than entertained me. The plot was just a rehash of his other Langdon books and the ending was painfully anticlimactic.

Deeply disappointed
