Want to read something uplifting this holiday season? Then look no further than Dean Koontz’s BREATHLESS (Bantam Hardcover). No, No, No… Dean Koontz does not write horror novels–never has–and there is rarely (or never!) a foul word. So Dean’s books are a great gift idea for those more sensative readers in your family. I get crazed when I hear this…”Dean Koontz writes horror.” Hello! Have you read a Koontz novel lately? Dean is the master of some of the best high-adventure, sharply observed, wickedly funny, edgy suspense there is and BREATHLESS really captures all of that in spades. This novel is not so much an end-of-the-world novel but a beginning-of-a-new-world story and I defy anyone not to feel hopeful after the last page is turned. It left me… dare I say it, “breathless.” It’s a great year-end read…and a great gift!
