Psychologically thrilling and highly disturbing! I immediately fell in love with these characters and absolutely could not believe what was going on the town of Black River! The residents are all with flu-like symptoms and have no idea that they are unwittingly being administered a drug through their drinking water! I liked how the book went into each of the three men's motives and desires for testing their product out on unaware citizens. You may also enjoy the other novels of Dean Koontz, especially the older ones. I also liked The Charm School by Nelson Demille, The Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follet, the novels of Tami Hoag, Tess Gerittsen and Patricia Cornwell. If you like Koontz, you would probably also enjoy Stephen King, Richard Laymon and John Saul.

From start to finish you are deeply involved in the story. This is definitely not a book for kids, because of the "darkness" and corruption in people, and because of very descriptive sexual moments that digs in deeper into the mind of a man corrupted by power.

This makes the second time that I have read this book and I promise that it was just as good the second time.

Haveing read this book over a year ago, hardly ever does a day go by when I don't think of it. Not because of it's scary, (which it is) but because it has a lot of turth to it. The Author gives a list of referances, in the Note To Reader, that proves the horror of the subject matter to be very real. Every single person should read this book at one point or other to be awer of the truth thats all around them. Since reading this book I will never look at the world the same way.

I like Koontz's work, but.... This just didn't do it for me.  Predictable and trite.  Characters drawn with very broad strokes. I much preferred Strangers ... or Watchers.  (Reading Phantoms now and am liking it.)

I am reading this book and as I read it (I am almost done with it), it has me sitting on the edge of my seat. Talk about scary. Dean Koontz does his usual - excellent writing. The characters are easy enough to follow and identify with. I would recommend this book to those that like the thrill of being scared. Enjoy!

YUCK!! I am a huge DK fan and really like MOST of his books! This was not one of them! WAY TOO much porno-type sex descriptives. I am not a prude by any means, but this was very repulsive to me for some reason. I guess I'm just to used to Koontz's nightmare inducing monsters, not his graphic sex scenes. Sorry, DID NOT like this book!
