The story wraps around a writer, Cullen "Cubby" Greenwich, and his family and their struggle to survive the menacing threat of a book reviewer with poor syntax. Cubby is a novelist who produces thrilling best sellers. His latest book is down-rated and decimated by the countries number one book critic, a reclusive man no-one, it seems, has ever met. When Cubby finds out the guy is going to taking lunch at one of the places he himself frequents, he takes his chance to at least get a look of the man. This was not a wise decision and from this point forward Cubby and family are on the run.
I read everything Dean Koontz writes. I love his work. I've not always liked everything he has written but I've at least given it a chance. Relentless is pure Dean Koontz. Quirky characters, diaglogue that flows with humor and a plot that's so twisted you often wonder where he's going until he gets there. The story is suspenseful and as always far-fetched; however, that is what this writer is all about: the what-ifs in the world. Though not his best effort, it certainly isn't his worse and it defenatly is worth reading if you are a fan.
