Koontz provides another great thriller for the reading world. He writes of a clairvoyant named Mary Bergen that helps police officers on murder cases. She is asked to help on a case of a serial killer and after he is caught, he eerily says her name as he dies. Another case falls into her lap as soon as the last one is over, but there is something different about this case. This new case is strangely connected to her in a way that she can not describe. Mary fights her way through attacking animals and frightening, painful visions of upcoming murders as she tries to find the killer and understand what happened to her 24 years ago. The only problem is that she is scared to find out the truth to both of the problems. This book takes unexpected turns and leaves you wanting more after every page. The best part is that the killer isn't revealed until the very end of the book. I recommend this book to all koontz lovers or anyone looking for a good thriller.

GOOD, BUT NOT GREAT

THE VISION definitely keeps a reader's interest. I've read most of Koontz's books and this one is NOT one of his best. To his credit, THE VISION is one of his earlier writings. The plot involves a clairvoyant woman who assists police in finding murderers. Then suddenly she becomes involved in finding a serial killer and everything starts getting weird. I knew who that killer was one-quarter of the way through but I finished reading it anyway.

    Did Koontz really write this???

    This book was nothing like the usual books produced by Koontz. Slow moving, little character development, no hearthumping developments & most noteworthy, the complete lack of the descriptive prose that Koontz has perfected. Although I own every book Koontz has ever written, I am grateful that I borrowed "The Vision" from the library.

    I purchased The Vision and it only downloaded 11 pages! When I tried to download it again it would not let me, saying that I already had purchased it! Poor form!

    I have said it all!
