It was very well written, but it just didn’t cut it for me. I wanted something that grabbed me, that had my heart in my throat, and this wasn’t it. It just wasn’t plausible, and I had the “who dun it ” part figured out in the 2 or 3rd chapter. I really wanted the advice on the back **Savor and linger over** to mean something, but each page left me wanting just that little bit more…why did she decide to have an affair nearly the minute she got of the plane? Where is the back-story on the reasons for that? If you like a legal drama and chic lit, you should gve this a try, but don’t get your hopes too high.

When I pick up a Dean Koontz novel, I want my heart to race, the hairs on the back of my neck to tingle…and this just didn’t do that. I found it very slow, and plodding. The characters weren’t entirely believable, I mean seriously, who the hell talks about arugula salad whilst being chased by a seemingly omnipotent mad-man? No one I know, that’s for sure. I was really looking forward to being scared for the characters, but by the middle of the book, I was rooting for the killer, as he was much more interesting with his fastidious nature and his almost laughable clean fetish.

If you want a noir drama with little to no real terror—this is the book for you. However, if you want a real Dean Koontz with scary bits, I suggest “The servants of Twilight”, it’s an oldie but a goodie.
