CLOSER…
They found the town silent, apparently abandoned. Then they found the first body strangely swollen and still warm. One hundred fifty were dead, 350 missing. But the terror had only begun in the tiny mountain town of Snowfield, California.

AND CLOSER…
At first they thought it was the work of a maniac. Or terrorists. Or toxic contamination. Or a bizarre new disease.

AND CLOSER…
But then they found the truth. And they saw it in the flesh. And it was worse than anything any of them had ever imagined…

LibraryThing Review

User Review  - AliceAnna - LibraryThing

A little far-fetched. Didn't know whether it wanted to be a Satanic predicament or a biological catastrophe so it didn't really work as either. His characters are so predictable. A lot of his stuff is formulaic. Read full review

User Review  - buffalogr - LibraryThing

The author created a book/novel about pure evil--horror. This one seems to drag a little, but held my interest through many details. Show me another weird Koontz book. Read full review
