Review: Ashley Bell by Dean Koontz

THE MUST-READ THRILLER OF THE YEAR: Featuring the most exhilarating heroine in memory and a sophisticated, endlessly ingenious, brilliantly paced narrative through dark territory and deep mystery, this is a new milestone in literary suspense and a major new breakout book from the long acclaimed master.

At twenty-two, Bibi Blair’s doctors tell her that she’s dying. Two days later, she’s impossibly cured. Fierce, funny, dauntless, she becomes obsessed with the idea that she was spared because she is meant to save someone else. Someone named Ashley Bell. This proves to be a dangerous idea. Searching for Ashley Bell, ricocheting through a southern California landscape that proves strange and malevolent in the extreme, Bibi is plunged into a world of crime and conspiracy, following a trail of mysteries that become more sinister and tangled with every twisting turn.

Unprecedented in scope, infinite in heart, Ashley Bell is a magnificent achievement that will capture lovers of dark psychological suspense, literary thrillers, and modern classics of mystery and adventure. Beautifully written, at once lyrical and as fast as a bullet, here is the most irresistible novel of the decade.

My Thoughts:
I don't want to say much about the plot for fear of giving something away. Basically Bibi is diagnosed with brain cancer that gives her only weeks to live, then she is miraculously cured. When she leaves the hospital she ends up needing to track down someone named Ashley Bell. The story keeps jumping back to events that happened when Bibi was younger as well as the point of view of Pax, Bibi's boyfriend. it was bit slow at times but the mystery kept me intrigued. The story kept spinning off into directions that I didn't see coming. Kept me guessing. The ending was a little out there and leaves things open for another book. A crazy ride and I enjoyed it. 

My Rating: *****
Steam Factor: !
