From The Corner Of His Eye by Dean Kootz

Genre:  Fiction

Published by:  BantamBooks

Pages:  Hard Cover

Rating:  8 JAGS

Imagine a tale of Faith, Love, Quantum Mechanics and a lengthy work of fiction woven into a tapestry of character development, and you would have Dean Koontz’s story, From The Corner Of His Eye.  Enoch Cain, otherwise known as Junior, is a methodical narcissistic killer with an obsessive compulsive disorder for self-help books and the death of Bartholomew. After the murder of his wife Namoi, Junior is haunted by the spirit of another one of his victims, Police Detective Tom Vanadium and the hunt to find a mysteries stranger. 

One of Koontz’s more dazzling works, he takes you on a wild ride of wonder through the streets of a quiet town in the woods of Oregon, to the rustle and bustle on the streets of San Francisco during the 60’s, where free love and expressionism are finding root and building a movement. From TheCorner of His Eye is a story in a story, keeping you engrossed in what could happen next, and surprising you when you least expect it.

A highly recommended read, From The Corner of His Eye is a definite purchase new or used. With a published date of 2000, chances are you will have better luck finding a copy on the shelves of your neighborhood resale bookstore, but if you happen to find a copy at one of the major bookstore chains, the $20.00 investment in a good read and will not leave you with buyer’s remorse.
