this book is not quite as good as its predecessor, however the basic fact that the charachters are so different and exciting would make this book worth a ead if it was 600 pages about fishing. Koontz's portrayal of animal is seen in most of his books as in this and it makes an interesting and refreshing change to have an animal as an integral charachter. This book does suffer from a couple of lengthy patches which aren't really needed but all in all I just love reading about Chris 'Snowman' Snow and his XP(xeroderma pigmentosum - aversion to light because it basically gives him cancer). I would also highly recommend any other Koontz books. I haven't found any really bad ones yet. I have also lent this book to many of my friends who all liked it to the extent the have bought other Koontz books!
This is the second book in the Christopher Snow / Moonlight Bay trillogy. Currently it is not know when the third and final book is due for publication but lets hope it is not too long. You must have read the first book to really get much out of this book, but once you have then this book is excellent. Christopher suffers from XP and cannot tollerate daylight and he and his friends are continuing to attempt to unravel what has been happening at the supposedly deserted military base in his town. People and animals appear to have been genetically modified and changing and becoming smarter. But they don't like Chris and friends snooping around and would be willing to leave him alone out of respect for his dead parents who where involved with the experiments but it is a different matter when they are being investigated. There is also a troop of genetically modified monkeys which seem to be very malicious and very smart and it is not clear yet how these will fit in with the story as a whole - except that they have been causing a lot of trouble. A good book and lets hope the final one is finished and released soon.
