A catastrophic, unexplainable plane crash leaves three hundred and thirty dead -- no survivors. Among the victims are the wife and two daughters of Joe Carpenter, a Los Angeles Post crime reporter.

A year after the crash, still gripped by an almost paralyzing grief, Joe encounters a woman named Rose, who claims to have survived the crash. She holds out the possibility of a secret that will bring Joe peace of mind. But before he can ask any questions, she slips away.

Driven now by rage (have the authorities withheld information?) and a hope almost as unbearable as his grief (if there is one survivor, are there others?), Joe sets out to find the mysterious woman. His search immediately leads him into the path of a powerful and shadowy organization hell-bent on stopping Rose before she can reveal what she knows about the crash.

Sole Survivor unfolds at a heart-stopping pace, as a desperate chase and a shattering emotional odyssey lead Joe to a truth that will force him to reassess everything he thought he knew about life and death -- a truth that, given the chance, will rock the world and redefine the destiny of humanity.

    " Dean Koontz is, as always, very readable. Although he avoids commiting himself to any particular religious denomination, his writing reflects a very decided believe in the Ultimate and the hereafter. In this story, the main character, Joe Carpenter, struggles to find meaning in life after losing his wife and two daughters in a devastating plane crash. Discovering there might be a "secret" survivor to this same crash, gives Joe hope. But who is this Rose? How did she survive? And was she the intended victim of whoever intended to sabatage the jetliner in the first place? Interesting mystery/thriller. "

    " Fun read although the ending was a bit anti-climatic. "

    " Okay, so the story was really compelling and I had to keep reading (or listening actually) because I had to find out how and why everything happened, but the story advanced oh so slowly. Just when I thought a major plot revelation was imminent, the author would start describing the vegetables on the shelves behind the characters or how deeply sad Joe was feeling and it would be several pages before the story would move forward again. But I probably would have given it four stars except that the resolution of the story was so complicated, implausible and downright ridiculous that I felt like I was reading the end of a whole different book. I'm glad I'm finished with it. Are all his books like this? "
