Review: What the Night Knows by Dean Koontz

What the Night Knows by Dean Koontz book coverIn his latest novel, Dean Koontz has infused his signature ghostly touch with elements of the crime genre to create What the Night Knows.

John Calvino is a Detective with three children living in a luxurious house courtesy of his wife's successful art career. When a murderer leaves specific items on each of the bodies after killing an entire family, John tries to butt in on the case. The case is remarkably similar to the slaying of his own family members when he was just a teenager. The more he investigates, the more John begins to fear for the safety of his family, and rightly so.

My favourite parts of the thriller were the chapters following the three children and their reactions to the first signs something weird was going on in the house.

Those who enjoy a thriller with a supernatural element will enjoy What the Night Knows. I always enjoy reading books by this author and can't hide the fact that I'm a fan of his writing and the thrill and shiver they often give me.

My rating = ***
