Tuesday Book Review


Five-star review of By the Light of the Moon by Dean Koontz

 Have I said before I love the literary way Koontz writes paranormal thrillers? I’m not even sure he’d say that’s what they are but to me they’re perfect. I loved this older one about an artist, Dylan, who’s guardian to his much younger autistic brother Shep and a female stand-up comedian, Jilly. On the same summer night they’re each grabbed at a motel in Arizona by a man who ties them up and then injects them with ‘stuff’ that will either kill them or do something to rewire their brains. With her Cadillac torched by men after the mad scientist, Jilly joins Dylan and his brother in a race to escape the folks in the black suburbans who are after what’s been injected into them. None of them know how the injections will affect them, each differently. These strangers grow closer as the action intensifies and they learn new ways to use their new abilities to do what has to be done. And that’s as it should be.
