Carol and Paul were drawn to her—she was the child they’d never had. A dream come true. And then Carol’s nightmares began—the ghastly sounds in the night…the bloody face in the mirror…the razor-sharp ax.Such relentless evilSo deceptively innocent.

I like Dean Koontz books, so far every one that I have read/listened too. This one was very slow starting and I gave up on it. This is the only one of hs boks that has disappointed me.
This book went back as fast as I could mail it. The reader does a lousy job and I refuse to listen to it. She uses an extreme theatrical voice and then an obvious low voice for the male voices...annoying.
