Elsewhere by Dean Koontz

Predictable yet tense…. ****

You know you are in the hands of a great writer when a book is totally predictable yet you are on the edge of your seat as the story unfolds. Koontz is a master at this and once again proves it in this novel.

As in most of his work, the story itself is thin but his ability as a wordsmith not only shines through but makes this an enjoyable read. My only negative comment is that the end felt rushed and was tied up a little too neatly. I had the feeling that Koontz used this novel to express frustration with our current state of politics and pandemic, yet with the hope that things will be okay.

This one gets four stars.
