Harry Lyon was a rational man, a cop who refused to let his job harden his soul. Then one fateful day, he was forced to shoot a man—and a homeless stranger with bloodshot eyes uttered the haunting words that challenged Harry Lyon’s sanity: “Ticktock, ticktock. You’ll be dead in sixteen hours … Dead by dawn … Dead by dawn … Dead by dawn … ”

    " It was a good read! Spots where it was a page turner! Some of it was a little sci-fi but good still . "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nicole | 2/14/2014

    " The very first Dean Koontz I read. I think I was in the seventh or eighth grade and I was hooked. A perfect combo of what's his writing so good. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Tami Le | 2/1/2014

    " Dean Koontz is a little out there for my liking, but all the books I've read of his seem to involve a Golden Retriever and I so appreciate the personality and viewpoint he gives our furry friends. I did enjoy the characters in this book and the story as well - as out there as it was. Great for listening in the car =) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Donna | 1/31/2014

    " His review of his own book commented on the fact that the book isn't about a dragon nor dragon tears.. but it's an excellent book none the less "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joleen | 1/31/2014

    " I read this book while I was hospitalized and it was such a great book that I finished it before I was released!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren | 1/29/2014

    " I got hooked on Dean Koontz by my dad when I was 15. I have already read this book, but I decided to pick it up again, and I loved it again. I love how Koontz even writes the perspective of the dog in the book!! It's a funny put dramatic murder thriller! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Daryl | 11/21/2013

    " The first Koontz book I ever read. I was browsing the bargin rack at Waldens (remember them?) and this caught my eye. A comment on the jacket said if you read the first two paragraphs of this book you will buy it. They were right and have been hooked ever since. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Shawn Elkins | 11/11/2013

    " Typical Koontz novel. Predicable heroes and villains. A easy read with some interesting views on humanity. "

    " Koontz's best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Troy Smith | 4/27/2013

    " This book turned me out to Kootnz, the first one I read by him. It scared the shit outta me! lol, no but seriously. At times I had to put it down & take a break. But between him and King! MAN IDK "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda Beck | 3/17/2013

    " A classic Koontz novel with the ultimate thrills and suspenseful twists and turns. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Greg | 2/13/2013

    " This was the first Dean Koontz book that I read. I like strange, but this one was a bit too much. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Blue Caeruleus | 12/27/2012

    " Thrilling, vivid, and entertaining pulp fiction. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Decop | 11/13/2012

    " Good dog. Good dog, good. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Linda gossman | 6/21/2012

    " I couldn't finish this book. It was to weird for me. I liked the concept of the part I was able to read. The setting and some of the characters were out of my comfort zone. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jaq Greenspon | 12/2/2011

    " I liked this. Fun story and really well read! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 David | 10/1/2011

    " great trash novel "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 V.S. Carnes | 7/13/2011

    " This perhaps my favorite Koontz novel. Such characters--aside from the protagonist and the villain. Especially loved the point-of-view from the dog. "Bee. Dead bee in a puddle..." "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Dana | 6/28/2011

    " A bit too sci-fi for my taste. I read it just because my son wanted to, and I wanted to make sure it was inappropriate before I said no. If it weren't for a couple descriptions in the first chapter, it would have been fine for him, though it may have given him nightmares. Just not my style. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Steven | 6/24/2011

    " More good suspense from the Dean of Suspense. A good plot overall, with a nasty villain and a good couple of cops. Recommended! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Anissa | 6/18/2011

    " This book initially made me interested in Dean Koontz. However after reading several books they became predictable so I stopped. But I LOVED this one because it was a first. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amanda | 5/28/2011

    " A classic Koontz novel with the ultimate thrills and suspenseful twists and turns. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kendar88 | 3/27/2011

    " A bit "out there" in theme, but still enjoyable. Ending is over fairly quick and without a lot of drama. Seems he could have put one more twist into the game by stopping time one last time. Great narrator. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Charity | 1/30/2011

    " My first book from this author. It was interesting and unique, but I had a hard time keeping everyone's stories straight. I did like the "dog's" point of view. I will probably try a different book by him to feel him out a little more. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kat | 1/14/2011

    " I enjoy DK books but don't recommend reading one after the other for a long period. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ryan | 1/13/2011

    " The first Dean Koontz book I ever picked up. I loved it. A powerful and fascinating villain, a couple of wise-cracking cops, supernatural events, chases, escapes, dogs--this is quintessential Koontz. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 1/8/2011

    " I am note sure I like the supernatural stuff that goes on in Koontz's books! "
