Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
``Despite some paper-thin characterizations and a predilection for the maudlin, Koontz's sense of pace and the dramatic are sure,'' observed PW. A horror story with science fiction underpinnings, this concerns an insane inventor whose bizarre experiment turns the sleepy California town of Moonlight Cove into a charnel house. (Nov.)
Library Journal
Four people are the last hope of Moonlight Cove, because one by one the rest of the citizens are changinginto boogymen, werewolves, mythical creatures, or something entirely new. They are the New People, willing victims of a seductive experiment in chemically induced evolution. They can transform their bodies at will and eliminate unproductive emotions, like grief and compassion. In fact, the only instinct left to the New People is self-preservation, and their only emotion is fear. And they want the rest of humanity to join them. Popular author Koontz ( Watchers , Lighting ) has again delivered a gripping horror thriller with well-drawn characters and plenty of suspense. Literary Guild selection. A.M.B. Amantia, Population Crisis Committee Lib., Washington, D.C.
