I was initially intrigued with this book. I started reading and was sucked into the story line. But after a bit, I was disenchanted with the story. I found myself not caring if I finished the book. I continued to try to fight through it and finish the book. I did get it finished but I felt let down and I kind of regretted reading it. Dean Koontz has definitely written better books in the past and I hope he comes out with a better book in the near future.
