Literary critic Shearman Waxx can kill a good book with just a few acidly worded bon mots. And as one unlucky author is about to discover, that’s not all he’s prepared to kill. . . .

From #1 New York Times bestselling master of suspense Dean Koontz comes a mesmerizing thriller about the battle of wills that ensues when a successful author and likable family man confronts a reclusive sociopath who wields an all-too-deadly poison pen. Respect Shearman Waxx’s opinion and you might escape with your career intact. Cross him and he’ll destroy you, your family, and everything you hold dear. For the title “America’s most feared critic” isn’t one Waxx takes lightly. He takes it literally. And now Cubby Greenwich, his wife, Penny, their brilliant six-year-old Milo, and their uniquely talented non-collie, Lassie, are all about to learn the true meaning of “culture war.”

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Dean Koontz Never Disappoints As with all of Koontz's novels I found this book entertaining and exciting. I had such an easy time speeding through it because I never wanted to put it down - I was constantly wondering what would happen next. I found the book to be humours in many parts, which I loved, but it also at times had me on the edge of my seat. Overall I enjoyed this book and would recommend it to all Koontz lovers, and even to people who aren't. I have read a good number of Koontz books and can honestly say it is very seldom that he lets down his readers.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Another Page-turner I was more than satisfied with the story line. The main character "Cubby" reminds me somewhat of Odd Thomas. The story leads us to the killer who is in fact the book critic. Gives us the impression that he, the critic, is a weirdo acting alone. But as things move along he is part of an organization out to change the world. It would have been a plus to know more about them and their goals, but unfortunately Koontz played them with a low key. However, it was for me a pageturner which I enjoyed to the end. If you like Koontz and King then this book is a must.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Relentlessly Boring I felt I was reading a story about an arrogant writer who could do nothing more then brag about himself. I hated the start of the book. It felt to me like all the character could do was whine about how hard it was to be such a gifted writer and the difficulties being so popular. Then this literary critic comes in the picture who is also a killer. Now the story gets better because now the character shuts up about himself, but does he get killed? I wish. I didn't like this book and turned me off of reading Dean Koontz, who I loved.
