The Servants of Twilight
by Dean Koontz

A suspense novel told by God about an old woman who leads a religious cult that is determined to kill a 6-year-old boy because the old bat decides he is the devil. The boy’s mother hires a private detective agency to protect the boy. Lots of action killings, and suspense. Twilight in the title refers to the supposed 1000-year reign of the devil. It makes no sense because the cult members are enemies of twilight not servants of it. Like many of Koontz’s titles, it was probably chosen by his publisher over his objections. It is a page turner. Well done.
