Teaser Tuesday – The Good Guy

I’m not sure how I’ve found the time to read, but I have and I decided to share with all of you.  I actually just finished this book over the weekend and I have to tell you that Dean Koontz does not disappoint.

The Good Guy

I used to read books for the stories.  I still do, but since I started writing, I also notice writing style and story composition.  I consider Koontz to be in a league of his own.  I’ll be reading along and suddenly he writes prose so beautiful that I have to stop and read it again.  It fits the story, but somehow it doesn’t at the same time.  I also managed to look up five or six words that I didn’t know.  I always feel pretentious when I use a “big” word, but he manages to fit them in so smoothly that you think you’ve always read those words.

I always wonder how anyone can write from the perspective of the killer, but Koontz makes it seem so easy.  He is also a master at creeping me out.  Anyway, The Good Guy is yet another Dean Koontz novel that I highly recommend.

The teaser is from page 249.  I hope you enjoy.

“Sorrow is not a raven perched persistently above a chamber door.  Sorrow is a thing with teeth, and while in time it retreats, it comes back at the whisper of its name.”
