I've always been a fan of Dean Koontz's work. I like weird, supernatural stories. His fit the bill, especially when I want a quick read. His newest one, What the Night Knows, really has me creeped out, so much so that I'm having a hard time finishing it.
As the book begins a 14 year-old boy has savagely murdered his entire family. The murders bear an eerie coincidence to ones that occurred 20 years earlier. Police detective John Calvino is certain his family is now the next target of this "reincarnated" killer.
Read the book and let me know what you think. A few students told me it was one of his most "gory" books. At this point, I'd tend to agree. I'll let you know.
