I haven’t read a Dean Koontz novel in ages, and my favorite was Watchers. I drifted away from this type of novel for several years, but with the sleep depravation that comes with raising an infant, I was looking for something light and fast paced. The Good Guy was also recommended by Stephen King in his EW article, so I gave it a go. It wasn’t bad. It was definitely a fast read. It is a bit of a chase novel (like The De Vinci Code, but without the contraversy) but it held my interest. I would consider this a good vacation read – light and fast.
