"Koontz is one of the great suspense authors.... There's no bestselling author of popular fiction whose sentences offer more musicality. His characters are memorable and his unique mix of suspense and humor absorbing. Great kudos to Koontz for creating, within the strictures of popular fiction, notable novel[s] of ideas and of moral imperatives." Publishers Weekly
