When I ran out of Stephen King books to read, someone suggested I read Dean Koontz. I can’t recall the first book of his that I picked up, but it was a book I definitely don’t regret reading. Koontz quickly became another of my favorite authors, and he was a big part of my list of books I wanted to read to reach my 50 books-a-year goal.

I joined a media swapping website, Swaptree about a year and a half ago, and Dean Koontz took up most of my “Want” list. That’s how “Velocity” ended up in my paws. Unfortunately, I was getting books faster than I could read them, so it’s taken me awhile to get to this book, and I’m truly sorry it did.

This is one of those books that has such a creative plot and story line, you can never really guess what is coming next. More than once, I uttered “wow” or “holy crap!” It is an honest to goodness page turner. More than once I put the book down to go to sleep, only to toss and turn because I wanted to read more.

The story had everything; characters you feel for, a plot that not only kept you guessing, but had you thinking up ways to HELP the characters, only to blow you away when you see how they end up helping themselves. I definitely recommend picking up a copy, which you can do here on amazon.com.

Alright, go read while I shut up.
