But I absolutely love the ending and is one of my favorites of all time. Medavoy and Lingg subsequently departed TriStar and Summers is no longer listed as a producer on the credits. This is my second Koontz read and again, he did not disappoint. Typical Koontz horror book, it’s a good read.


The author has tried and failed to get his name removed from the film’s credits. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The movie version is also worth a look, as it improves on the plot somewhat Therefore, by air express, I sent this letter to Tokyo: I believe we Americans have a lot to learn from you, and I look forward to your response to my letter of 10 November, last year.
