Review – The Good Guy by Dean Koontz

The Good Guy
by Dean Koontz
447 pages
Published June 2007
Fiction (Suspense)

Every once in a while I need a mind candy book. This time I chose Dean Koontz. Apparently, Mr. Koontz doesn’t rate high with the lit-ra-chur folk, one of whom told me, “I read one of his books…in twelfth grade.”

I’m not pretending this is lit-ra-chur, I’m just saying it was a good read.

I can’t do anything supernatural, so lots of Koontz’s stuff is out for me. This one, though, is about a guy who’s mistaken for a hitman and gets the info on a girl who’s gonna get offed and goes to save her but the real killer finds out what happened and sets out to KILL THEM BOTH.

That’s it. That’s the story. I can’t even rate this because I refuse to compare it to some of my recent treasures (Hi, The Wednesday Sisters! Hi, The Year of Fog!), but like I said, it’s a good read.

    I have read a couple of Dean Koontz books and really enjoyed them. They were entertaining, and I thought Koontz proved himself to be a good storyteller. This isn’t one I have read, but it does sound good. I am glad you enjoyed it.

    It’s been a long, long time since I read a Dean Koontz book. I’ll have to hit the shelves and give him a try. Beach reads and photos at Enjoy.

    I saw the MwP Sunday drive-by and thought that I’d check out your site 🙂 I’m loving the layout!

    Your reference to lit-ra-chur made me laugh. I know some people like that with over-inflated egos. The funny thing is, if this was high-reading lit-ra-chur for them in the 12th grade, they may have been slightly dim.

    The plot on this one looks pretty good and I think I’m going to check it out. Thanks for the recommendation!

    I keep wanting to get this book and have no idea why I haven’t picked it up yet. I loved The Husband and finished it in about a day. Some of his earlier stories Like Twilight Eyes, Midnight, and Lightening were really terrific.

    Sometimes the mind-candy books are the best ones! 🙂

    I read Koontz every once in awhile. He is a good storyteller and his books are usually page turners. Not deep, but fits the bill sometimes. I had the pleasure of listening to him speak once at UCLA. He is a very funny guy and I am willing to support him humor.

    I read it, and enjoyed it. However, the one thing that I missed (or wasn’t included) was what the framed image was in Linda Paquette’s bedroom that angered the killer. Does anyone know what the print/image was of?
