Tommy Phan is a successful detective novelist living the American dream in Southern California. One evening he comes home to find a small rag doll on his doorstep.

Curious, he brings it inside. Something terrifying emerges from the pristine white cloth, something that will follow Tommy wherever he goes. He has only one ally, a beautiful, strangely intuitive waitress he meets by chance – or by a design far beyond his comprehension. He has too many questions, no answers, and very little time. The deadline is dawn. I loved the main character, Tommy Phan.

He was wonderfully written. His partner, a hippie airhead blonde, was terrible. She was awkwardly antagonistic and a blatant know-it-all. After a few suspenseful chapters, the story devolved into repetitive silliness and grating interrogations by the blonde. Fun beginning, plodding middle, and anti-climactic climax. It felt as though Mr. Koontz was trying out a new series. Halstead met my every expectation and surpassed them for what my inner monologue would contain Koontz blew my mind, as usual.

The story was enticing the first half of the story. The Vietnamese pronunciation of the words were not very well verbalize. I am a native speaker and I had to figure out what was being said. The voodoo doll was enough for me. Then, there was another story on the side about Dale Pain. That should be a separate book on its own. Overall this book was a 3. This was very entertaining and pulled at my heartstrings. I gave it five stars, however I gave the performance four stars because his mispronunciation of Jaguar was so distracting.

Every time I heard him say Jagwire it took me out of the spell the story had me under. Highly recommend this book.
