This is a fast paced horror novel by Dean Koontz who is a master story teller.
Imagine that you and your child are leaving the mall when you are accosted by an old lady dressed all in green. She starts asking you if you know what your little boy is. She then starts telling you that your child is the anti christ and needs to die. Screaming and attacking you as you attempt to flee into your car. That is how the novel begins and keeps up the fast paced action.
A great heroine in Christine Scavello who defends her son with everything she has, giving up everything in her life to keep him safe. Charlie Harrison is the epitome of the hero as he sacrifices so much after Christine hires the private investigator to find out what's going on and keep her son safe.
There are small hints all through out the book that the old lady may not be totally crazy but the little boy Joey is just so adorable. The book definitely leaves you wondering exactly what's up with Joey all the way up to the end and beyond! I am actually hoping for a sequel to this novel about 10 to 15 years in the future. If Joey is the anti christ I want to know for sure!
If you like a good fast paced horror novel that makes you wonder about the war between God and the Devil that definitely pick this up and give it a read!
