Overview

In picturesque Moonlight Cove, California, inexplicable deaths occur and spine-tingling terror descends to this "edge of paradise." Growing numbers of residents harbor a secret so dark it is sure to cost even more lives.

Tessa Lockland comes to town to probe her sister's seemingly unprompted suicide. Independent and clever, she meets up with Sam Booker, an undercover FBI agent sent to Moonlight Cove to discover the truth behind the mysterious deaths. They meet Harry Talbot, a wheelchair-bound veteran, who has seen things from his window that he was not meant to see. Together they begin to understand the depth of evil in Moonlight Cove. Chrissie Foster, a resourceful eleven-year-old, running from her parents who have suddenly changed and in whom darkness dwells, joins them. Together they make a stand against darkness and terror.

Loved the way the characters evolved, some towards a greater responsibility and others away from it.

Koontz amazes me everytime. 'Midnight' is a story about a small coastal town quickly and secretly undergoing a horrific change to it's citizens. Caught in the middle of this living nightmare are 4 intriguing and distinctive characters brought together against the odds to quite possibly save the world as we know it. Riveting chapters kept me glued to the end. Koontz proves again that he is a master storyteller, and like featured evil inventor Thomas Shaddack, Koontz has the ability to create creatures that could only be found in the worst of our dreams.

I've read about 5 Koontz books up to this point and this was by far my least favorite. I almost didn't read the entire book, but was halfway through it and decided I may as well finish it. I would not recommend this Koontz book to others.

Slow start but gets better. No question this is a made for movie story. I'm sure this was in the authors mind as he wrote it.

Lent to me by a friend (thanks Maz!), this was one of the books that convinced me Koontz was an author worth reading. Suspenseful and dark.

I read this book several years ago after discovering Dean Koontz and working my way through many of his books. I loved this book. It gave me the shivers then and still does to this day. Even years later, I get a shiver when I think about the opening pages of this book and the jogger being chased down. It was truly terrifying to me. I would like to read it again to see if it would still give me chills. I love much of Dean Koontz's early works, though stopped reading him several years ago as I felt like much of his work was becoming not only repetitive, but somewhat boring. This book, however, is one of his best in my opinion.

My favorate Koontz book to date, one of his few that are horror novels. While filled with horror, this book was more about dark corners of humanity, where one man began converting an entire town into "something better" and it turned out to be something far worse. This book very nicely paced as are most Koontz books, he did a nice job of creating a very creepy town, and putting us in the perspective of several different people, including some of the bad guys. It was just all around great, never let up.

A good read, likeable characters, if perhaps a little two dimensional.

Gosh, I read it awhile ago, but had trouble remembering what it was about. This one is not too memorable...
