Publisher's Summary

#1 New York Times Bestseller

The plane crashed without warning. Three hundred and thirty people died. No explanation. No survivors. Now one man who lost everything that night is about to discover the answers he needs to go on with his life - or the conviction to finally end it.

Crime reporter Joe Carpenter lost his wife and two daughters in the crash of Flight 353. Aching from his loss, Joe is unable to work, think, or do anything but grieve, and wait for his own death. Then Joe meets Rose, a woman who claims to be the crash’s sole survivor. But before Joe can probe further, the elusive Rose slips away and Joe is left with haunting, terrifying questions: If Rose lived through the crash, is it possible his family could have survived it, too? Did the authorities conspire to hide what really happened that night? Joe’s search for the truth will shatter him like nothing has before - and force him to question everything he thinks he knows about life and death.

Mixed feelings

I absolutely love Dean Koontz and while this story was very intriguing I felt like the it played out too quickly. It could've been stretched out and made into a 5 star novel. still good though, I don't regret purchasing.

Koontz has an amazing ability to teach in fiction stories

Has always been a fan!
Koontz has not failed in structuring a story which holds your attention in such an amazing way. I cannot think of a single thing which I did not like about this audiobook. The narrators tone of voice aids in those who have a little problem hearing.
This is another really deep and well researched literary masterpiece.

Decent offering from Koontz

This is one of Dean's better reads. The story line is strong and the ending remains obscure till the end but makes sense once revealed.

I liked the characters and their development. Strong performance as well.

Overall good choice.

good story bad ending

enjoyed this very much, however the ending was horrible! It's almost like Dean Koontz just got tired of writing and just stopped. I actually had to rewind the last chapter because I thought I missed something, then I thought for some reason the whole book didn't download, but it did...just a bad ending. Also parts of the reader's voice when he was being an older man sounded like Santa Claus in "A Year without Sant Claus". If you seen this then you know what I'm saying.

So poorly written

I wanted to like this story. But it was so poorly written. So many info dumps. The main character was not interesting. I finally skipped to the last chapter just to get it over with.

I really enjoyed this book, although a little wordy, it had the most intriguing story line.

Good Story, the reader was average

Traditional Dean Koontz with his wonderful descriptive writting prose that brings his characters to life. Narrator was flat to me and made the story slow to follow at times.

Good book, but not one of his best...

Whilst I did enjoy the book it was a gentle slope upwards. I prefer large peaks when reading a book. In saying that, at no point did I think about stopping, it just didn't rise as high as I thought it might.
