Review
The latest from prolific, best-selling Koontz is about Harry and Connie, a male-female cop team that has to catch a psychokiller who interrupts their lunch by opening fire on the restaurant. Shortly thereafter, Harry is threatened with death by a bum with blood-red eyes who's also been threatening street people. Turns out there's no relation between the lunch-loonie and the death-bum, but there is between the bum and Bryan, a rich young maniac gifted with psychokinesis--the ability to move things at his mental bidding. Stephen King has said nice things about Koontz and bad things about grade-B horror meister John Saul, which just goes to show you shouldn't give King's opinions too much weight. Popular though he is, Koontz is a bore. Only if you're stuck on a long flight or overnight in a dinky motel should you read him word for word. This effort gets so stale by the halfway mark that it's impossible to care whether the flatfoots get their ghoul. ((Reviewed Dec. 1, 1992)) -- Ray Olson
