A year had passed since little Danny's death -- a year since his mother began the painful process of acceptance. But Tina Evans could have sworn she just saw her Danny in a stranger's car. Then she dreamed that Danny was alive. And when she awoke, she found a message waiting for her in Danny's bedroom -- two disturbing words scrawled on his chalkboard: NOT DEAD. Was this someone's grim joke? Her mind playing tricks on her? Or something more? For Tina Evans, it was a mystery she couldn't escape. An obsession that would lead her from the bright lights of Las Vegas to the cold shadows of the High Sierras. A terrible secret seen only by The Eyes of Darkness.… (més)

This is a Dean Koontz (under pseudonym) book from 1981. I've never really been a fan of mass market thriller writers, but they do make a lot of money, so clearly a lot of people are (and good for them for filling the demand). This is one I read because there's a reference to an engineered plague from Wuhan (which has been blown out of proportion by conspiracy theorists since then, but was definitely good speculation -- Wuhan being China's main incident of virology is about the same as talking about a plague escaping from Ft. Detrick in the US, or Smallpox escaping from Atlanta or the Russian institute.)

Horrible characters, plot, etc. generally (the random "former military intelligence guy" being a super secret agent shows little understanding of how the military actually works, and the on-a-dime shift from "X is impossible" to "X is the only explanation and I fully support it" based on very little evidence...). The one quasi amusing part of the whole book was the enemy being redeemed toward the end (somewhat) as having been forced to do a bad thing due to other worse people.

Overall, I'd skip this -- only really worth reading to check out how Wuhan-400 (in the book) is possible foreshadowing of Covid-19 (it wasn't, it was just a reference to a virus research institute). ( )

Wrapping up 2020 with the book that “predicted” the pandemic of 2020! Boy, I wish I had this copy back at the beginning of the Covid outbreak when folks were dropping a hundred bucks for it! I guess I should just be glad that I wasn’t one of them! Anyway...

The book neither predicts the Covid, or coronavirus, nor does in mention 2020. The only "connection" is that we finally get to the Wuhan-400 on page 353... of 366! Yup, 13 pages before the end! So, I guess the 'big' deal was that it says Wuhan. I think someone on Koontz's marketing team deserves a HUGE raise! And I am SOOOOOO glad that I didn't pay $100 to read this book, as it wasn't a very good one anyway. This book really disappointed me, just like the rest of 2020 has. Hmmm... maybe that's the connection!!!... ( )

Exciting scifi thriller. I don't see this as a horror genre so if you are reluctant to read, don't be!
I borrowed this book from the library because of "WUHAN 400" bio weapon that everyone was talking about. It's there towards the end of the story and I'm not going to spoil it any further.

After the last couple of Koontz books I've read, I was starting to wonder whether my enjoyment of them as a teen wasn't going to carry over at all to adulthood. This one, however, was lots of fun and fast paced enough to have me reading most of it in one sitting.

The author note in the back of this updated edition says that Koontz edited it before re-releasing it in his own name, instead of the former pseudonym. Part of this editing process included removing "excess wordage", which makes me wonder whether this was the key to me enjoying it more than his 90s novels, which definitely suffer from a lot of that!

What is with all the annoying instalove in novels, though? You've known each other five minutes.

Mystery Thriller. A mother loses her son to an accident in the High Sierras along with a group of hikers on a camping trip. She never viewed the body, because the undertaker told her it would be too gruesome. 1 year later, she started getting messages "NOT DEAD" NOT DEAD" Who was sending the messages? She was going to find out. Interesting. story. ( )

This better version is for Gerda, with love. After five years of work, now that I'm nearly finished improving these early novels first published under pen names, I intend to start improving myself. Considering all that needs to be done, this new project will henceforth be known as the hundred-year plan.
