Whispers by Dean Koontz
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I thought this book was very boring and confusing. Koontz introduces a lot of characters and he don’t give you much description as to who they are and if any connection to each other.
The basic story is that Hilary Thomas, a screenwriter who survived a traumatic childhood at the hands of alocholic parents, is terrorised in her home by Bruno Frye, a vineyard owner who seems to think she is his mother reincarnated. Enter our police team, who come in the painfully good cop-bad cop format. Bad cop thinks she's making it all up to get attention (and tells her as much) even though she has absolutely no reason to, while good cop not only believes her story, but fancies the pants off her to boot. Good cop-bad cop leave, only for the attacker to return to the house to finish off the job. However, Hilary is armed with a knife and fatally stabs and kills him. But is he really dead because the very same person arrives in her house several nights later, determined to put her in an early grave. At this point, Hilary has entered into a relationship with Tony Clemenz who is the good cop and together they set about unraveling the mystery of how Bruno Frye has risen from the dead.
