Ashley Bell: latest thriller from Dean Koontz

24 Oct

I found this book to be intriguing until – SPOILER ALERT – it becomes clear that everything that is happening to Bibi is in her own mind. Once I knew that she was “writing” her fantasy in her mind, as she lay in a coma, then it lost all suspense. The threat became irrelevant, the ticking clock made no sense, and the whole notion that she has the power to make her imaginary thoughts real is left unexplored until the very end.
Clearly, Dean Koontz is a great writer but this didn’t work for me.
