Publisher's Summary

Strange days....
Winter gripped the city. Terror gripped it, too. They found four corpses in four days, each more hideous than the last.

Strange nights....
At first the cops thought they were dealing with a psychopath. But soon they heard eerie sounds in the ventilation system - and saw unearthly silver eyes in the snow-slashed night.

Final hours....
In a city paralyzed by a blizzard, something watches, something stalks.

©2008 Dean Koontz (P)2008 Brilliance Audio

Awesome !!

This book keeps you at the edge of your seat just like most of Dean Koontz books do!! The guy who reads the book has an amazing talent and gives each character their own voice!! And for the creepy people of the book it gives your listening experience an exciting ride !!

Loved it!

He is one of my favorite writers and I'm really glad they are putting his older works on audio. I'm not into VooDoo but this book was a real page turner! It was very easy to listen to and the narrator did an Excellent job with the voices and "supernatural" sounds. I highly recommend this one.

Leaves you wanting more

Excellent listen - oddly enough my first Dean Koontz book. Dean is an amazing writer, but I found myself wishing there was a bit more to this universe. It was a very short book and I wish that Dawson's character was better utilized after he discovered his potential.

Regardless, a great listen.

Clay is dangerous when animal blood is involved

Christopher Lane did an amazing job with the narration. The majority of the book had me on the edge of my seat but I felt it bogged down a little towards the end. Still one of the better audibles I've heard.

Edge of Your Seat Listen

This is one of those books that I would gladly listen to more than once. It is detailed without being drawn out or boring. I enjoyed the drama that unfolded around the hero's children who are at the heart of this story. If you love science fiction, you'll love this yarn about the supernatural. If you're curious about the supernatural, this one will whet your appetite. If you're a fan of Dean Koontz, he won't let you down. I feel as though he put some of his best efforts into this one.

Love the Koontz!

Very good Koontz. I was easily sucked in and surprised by how I couldn't wait to get back to hear more. Some people bashed it but it's definitely worth a credit.

Really good listen!!!

I wrote a review on another Dean Koonz book that, believe it or not, wasn't very good. The name of that book was Lightening. This book however, is excellent. It moves fast and the narrator is awesome. His Jamaican dialect is on the mark. My advise....GET THIS BOOK.

Very good

A very enjoyable story, well read. It's your standard Koontz stuff, no better or worse than anything else he's written. An entertaining horror story about voodoo.
