The Taking

New or Used: $4.94
On the morning that will mark the end of the world they have known... Molly and Neil Sloan wake to find an eerily luminous downpour drenching their small Californian mountain town. As the rain continues to fall, TV pictures relay disturbing news of extreme weather phenomena across the globe. With the evening comes a ghostly fog. Their sense of isolation is complete when first TV and radio, then the internet and phone lines go dead. Molly and Neil gather with neighbours, sensing an awful danger approaching with the night...It's like a scary movie made real. But what is really happening? Is it science gone wrong or a technology beyond human understanding? Or something deeper, more fundamental. Something to do with fate and purpose. Something that won't have a Hollywood ending.

Reviews

'Uplifting enough to make Cain repent ... There is scarcely an author alive who loves the English language more .. whose sentences offer more musicality ... the tale's grandeur and strong lines ... characters are memorable and his unique mix of suspense and humour absorbing... great kudos to Koontz for creating, within the strictures of popular fiction, another notable novel of ideas and of moral imperatives ... Look for this to hit #1' Publishers Weekly `Koontz flexes his muscles and sets forth like a demigod to create his most strongly anchored novel since 1995's Intensity, a work sheathed with darkness and wreathed with wiry metaphor ... hundreds of pages of top-drawer suspense' Kirkus Reviews 'Dean Koontz is not just a master of our darkest dreams, but also a literary juggler' The Times `Psychologically complex, masterly and satisfying.' The New York Times `Koontz has near-Dickensian powers of description, and an ability to yank us from one page to the next that few novelists can match.' Los Angeles Times `Koontz has once again proven why he is one of the premier novelists of his generation.' Amazon.co.uk
