Like all Dean Koontz books, the story is "on the edge of your seat exiting", gets intresting very quickly, and is very well written. The story is about two NewYork City detectives, Jack and Rebecca. Jack is patient, resourceful, and not afraid to follow as supernatural lead. He is the strong protagonist of Darkfall. His partner Rebecca is just as strong of a detective as Jack, but much more cynical and extremely realistic.
They are put on a case of gruesome murders, where the victims are a cut and slashed hundreds of times until they die of blood loss. The killers leave no trace, and seem to have the ability to break into the most secure of buildings. All the victims belong to the mafia family. Leaders of the mafia are being cut down one by one by and acclaimed voodoo doctor.
As the detectives get further into this mysterious case Rebeccas realistic beliefs are rapidly filed away and both Rebecca and Jack come to know and fear the voodoo doctors small, vicious, and silver eyed assasins.

love the book, great read that doesn't let you down. Dean Koontz is at it again, just when you think you have figured it out he throws you a curve. Fast paced, with caractors you will love. Plan to sit everything else out while reading, it won't let you put it down.

Darkfall By Dean Koontz Homicide detective Jack Dawson has been thrown into the middle of a battle between a mafia family and the man who seeks revenge for the death of his brother, this is no ordinary war between factions the man who wants revenge is a Bocor a man who specializes in the the dark side of voodoo. If Jack Dawson does not stop he risks the life of his children and the woman he loves but if he does stop he will never be able to live with himself. I know that this novel is supposed to be scary but though it is a thriller for sure it is far from scary small rodent like creatures that lurk in the shadows with sharp pointy teeth, creepy yes, but scary no. Dean Koontz is a great writer though, he manages to bring to life these creatures and add to the fact that these people are trapped by a blizzard it is a fun thriller.

It kind of reminds me of the Frankenstein series. The detective in this book has the kind of humor, (and dedication), of the male detective in Frankenstein. I'd give this book 4 stars, (out of 5), and 5 stars to the Frankenstein series. Very good read!
