Huge fan of Dean Koontz but this one just didn't do it for me. Well written and well narrated and still worth a listen if your a fan. Maybe it's just that I prefer his older work

He lives in solitude beneath the city, an exile from society, which will destroy him if he is ever seen. She dwells in seclusion, a fugitive from enemies who will do her harm if she is ever found. But the bond between them runs deeper than the tragedies that have scarred their lives. Something more than chance - and nothing less than destiny - has brought them together in a world whose hour of reckoning is fast approaching.

Great book and a nice twist at the end. A short lull here and there but overall fantastic.

An ordinary parking lot in southern California. Christine Scavello and her six-year-old son are accosted by a strange old woman. "I know who you are," the woman snaps at the boy. "I know what you are." A scream, a threat - and then a grotesque act of violence. Suddenly Christine's pride and joy, her only son, is targeted by a group of religious fanatics. They've branded him the Antichrist. They want to kill him. And they are everywhere.

Another typically good book by Dean Koontz. Intreaging, saddening and left me looking forward to listening to the next hour or so everytime. Unfortunately the narrator is quite off putting and spoiled it a bit for me, she is very robotic and seems to not have any emotion at all. You get used to it and as you get in to the book it becomes less of an irritation.. however you would think that an established company such as brilliance audio would have recognised the issue and done better by the book and it's writer. That said I still enjoyed the story very much.

They found the town silent, apparently abandoned. Then they found the first body strangely swollen and still warm. One hundred fifty were dead, 350 missing. But the terror had only begun in the tiny mountain town of Snowfield, California.
