Very entertaining and suspenseful but have read better from Dean Koontz

With this book we see Mr. Koontz's evolving as a sociopolitical creature, often including real aspects in his novels, he correctly, if very subtlely, shows the psyco-assassin from the privatized prison venue (the ideal preserve for the cheapest assassins conceivable), but drops the ball by portraying the standard "shadow government" ending, when the father-knows-best (or mother-knows-best) scenario, where the top politicians are really good guys after, truly a fictional concept. With his book, "Relentless" - - Koontz completely nails the real deal, in other words, REALITY writ large! (The common fictional fallacy, as also found in Stieg Larsson's "Girl W/The Dragon Tatoo" trilogy. Read Mr. Koontz's "Relentless" to see how he finally, firmly grasps reality as fiction!)

Easy read, suspenseful. The 'bad' guy is a bit disturbing. A good read for adults. I recommend it for adults.

I did not realize that I had already read this one , two years ago.
Fast-moving and familar to the style that Koontz's readers are accustomed to.
All in all, it's a decent read.

One of the best books I have ever read.

One of the main characters in this book is the evilest character I have ever read about. I didn't cheer for the guy because well, he was bad.. but I loved him because of how dynamic and complicated he was. His character was stunningly scarey.

I would reccommend this book to anyone. It will keep you reading from cover to cover until its finished!
