Book Description
Past midnight, Chyna Shepherd, twenty- six, gazed out a moonlit window, unable to sleep on her first night in the Napa Valley home of her best friend's family. Instinct proves reliable. A murderous sociopath, Edgler Forman Vess, has entered the house, intent on killing everyone inside. A self-proclaimed "homicidal adventure," Vess lives only to satisfy all appetites as the arise, to immense himself in sensation, t o live without fear, remorse or limits, to live with intensity. Chyna is trapped in his deadly orbit.

Chyna is a survivor, toughened by a lifelong struggle for safety and self-respect. Now she will be tested as never before. At first her sole aim is to get out alive-until, by chance, she learns the identity of Vess's next intended victim, a faraway innocent only she can save. Driven by a newly discovered thirst for meaning beyond mere self-preservation, Chyna musters every inner resource she has to save an endangered girl--as moment by moment, the terrifying threat Edgler Foreman Vess intensifies.

I've taken a look at my shelves today. So many books! Now that I've had a chance to look at this book, it doesn't appeal to me. I shall search for a good home for it. :)

Up until now I've very much enjoyed Koontz's writing and this book was recommended by a good friend of mine as being one of his best. Unfortunately I'll have to disagree! I struggled through it, every time I picked it up I ended up sleepy, not a very good sign with a book that intended to be suspenseful. The story was way too predictable, there weren't many twists and turns as is usual with Koontz, and I wasn't even scared. I found Chyna very irritating and to tell you the truth I was rooting for Vess to finish her up! :op This one is now going to fflloorr, who also likes Koontz's books. I truly hope you enjoy it more than I did!

This book was so boring, not like all the others I've read from this author. Well, every author has its bad moments, right?

Fflloorr's been so kind to pass on this book to me. I'm in need of an easy & entertaining read so hopefully Koontz will do it for me - though, I have to say, last entries didn't do much to encourage me! ;0) ...

I have read it a while ago and I also found it a bit too slow and descriptive for a suspense book, particularly with the action being frequently interrupted by flashbacks to events in Chyna's past...

The book is now reserved for a virtual BookBox "de par em par".


10 Jan: Sent to AnjoDiogo today. Hope you enjoy it. :)
