"
On the windscreen of his SUV, Billy finds the first note.
He thinks it's a hoax.
The schoolteacher dies.

The next note reverses the scenario. If Billy takes the note to the police, a mother of two young children will die. If he doesn't, an unmarried man who won't be much missed will die...

Billy must think the unthinkable, fast, in an accelerating nightmare. More communications from the killer follow, with ever tighter deadlines. Each is more personal, more confrontational than the last until he is isolated, with no one to rely on but himself. Finally he must risk everything to save the intended victims...

Journal Entry 2 by VintageVanguard at Friedrichshain, Berlin Germany on Monday, March 05, 2018
an ok book, but give the set-up surprisingly boring.
the main character, Billy, really didn't interest me at all. a boring bartender whose only hobby is wood-work and who regularly visits his comatose girlfriend (who is in this novel so that Billy actually cares about anything, but is comatose so Koontz doesn't have to make her interesting, except that she loves Dickens?).
i skimmed quite a few paragraphs because they were just filled with blablabla to make the book longer...

I would have preferred a book about the Tavern and its workers. the owner who wanted to be a priest, the haruspex waitress (coolest character! why not more of her?). all so much better than Billy...

oh and the end was really anti-climatic!
