What the Night Knows- Dean Koontz

I am a sucker for Dean Koontz. His books feature dogs (ghostly or living), the good guys usually win, and he takes me for a thrilling ride along the way.

"What the Night Knows" is no exception. Years ago a murderous killer, evil incarnate, Alton Turner Blackwood, brutally killed four families, leaving one survivor. That boy grows up to be a cop, with a loving family of his own. When copy cat murders start happening again, John Calvino, the survivor, see a pattern and realizes his own family is in danger.

Surprisingly the back story of Alton Blackwood was very interesting and really caught my attention.

Used to dealing with facts and the physical, John has a problem with what seems like a phantom killer. As he investigates, he finds out that dead and gone may not be the final fact.

This was a terrific thriller, and spooky to boot. It was a fairly quick read and I recommend it to anyone who reads Koontz, and anyone who like to get themselves spooked! (double threat)

I received this book from Library Thing Early Reviewers. Thank you!
