"Koontz is a master of the edge-of-your-seat, paranoid thriller and perhaps the leading American practitioner of the form."—Newark Star-Ledger
"Koontz is working at his pinnacle, providing terrific entertainment that deals seriously with some of the deepest themes of human existence: the nature of evil, the grip of fate and the power of love."—Publishers Weekly, Starred Review
"Koontz has always had near-Dickensian powers of description, and an ability to yank us from one page to the next that few novelists can match." —Los Angeles Times
“An exquisite crafting of the thrilling, the unexplainable, and the personal, with the mirth and whimsy that Koontz throws in seemingly effortlessly just when it’s most needed and least expected.”—Library Journal, starred review
“[A] smoothly spun nail-biter…. Koontz still grabs readers as few other thriller scribes can.”—Booklist
