The Face
by Dean Koontz

A horror novel told by God about a man in charge of security for a superstar whose former best friend dies and becomes a ghost who tries to warn him of immanent danger and who ends up acting as his guardian angel. The title refers to the handsome superstar, who never actually appears in the plot line. For the most part Koontz’s magic fails him and the book is below par, but it is partially redeemed by a strong ending. As usual, it rains so much in this novel that Koontz makes you think California must be a rain forest.

Year Read: 2005
