The Key to Midnight by Dean Koontz
Thoughts Before Reading:
I had a Dean Koontz phase. I read almost all his books until I had burnout and moved on to something else. It all started at a book sale:
And this book was one I really enjoyed.
Johanna Rand is an American singer who has lived in Japan about ten years. She loves living in Japan and her job at the Moonglow Lounge.
The only thing she doesn’t love, she constantly has these nightmares about a man with steel fingers and a hypodermic needle-violating and assaulting her. She would wake up and feel as if it just happened.
Alex Hunter, private investigator, is vacationing in Japan. He sees Johanna and is struck by her beauty and voice. She looks so familiar, but when they talk-there is no recognition. He spends a wonderful time and the two fall for each other-hard.
The next day, Alex is getting ready when it hits him! He knows where he knows her from-she’s Lisa Chelgrin.
He is sure she is Lisa and questions her on their date. Everything matches up that it could be the same girl, but he doesn’t want to scare her off or frighten her as he waits until he has proof as to who she is.
The two spend time together and he begins to wake up the memories so long hidden. But what they uncover is a deeper, darker, secret than either had imagined!
Thoughts After Reading:
So this one I thought was really good. It was pretty heavy on the romance, but otherwise kept you guessing. I never saw that ending coming!
