Timothy Carrier is an ordinary guy who enjoys a beer after work. But tonight is no ordinary night. Instead, Tim will face a terrifying decision: Help or run. For the jittery stranger sitting beside him at the bar has mistaken Tim for someone else--and passes him a manila envelope stuffed with cash and the photo of a pretty woman. "Ten thousand. The rest when she's gone."
nbsp;
Now everything Tim thinks he knows--even about himself--will be challenged. For Tim Carrier is the one man who can save an innocent life and stop a killer as relentless as evil incarnate. But first he must discover resources within himself that will transform his idea of who he is and what it takes to be the good guy.

Very entertaining and suspenseful but have read better from Dean Koontz

With this book we see Mr. Koontz's evolving as a sociopolitical creature, often including real aspects in his novels, he correctly, if very subtlely, shows the psyco-assassin from the privatized prison venue (the ideal preserve for the cheapest assassins conceivable), but drops the ball by portraying the standard "shadow government" ending, when the father-knows-best (or mother-knows-best) scenario, where the top politicians are really good guys after, truly a fictional concept. With his book, "Relentless" - - Koontz completely nails the real deal, in other words, REALITY writ large! (The common fictional fallacy, as also found in Stieg Larsson's "Girl W/The Dragon Tatoo" trilogy. Read Mr. Koontz's "Relentless" to see how he finally, firmly grasps reality as fiction!)

Easy read, suspenseful. The 'bad' guy is a bit disturbing. A good read for adults. I recommend it for adults.

I did not realize that I had already read this one , two years ago.
Fast-moving and familar to the style that Koontz's readers are accustomed to.
All in all, it's a decent read.

One of the best books I have ever read.

One of the main characters in this book is the evilest character I have ever read about. I didn't cheer for the guy because well, he was bad.. but I loved him because of how dynamic and complicated he was. His character was stunningly scarey.

I would reccommend this book to anyone. It will keep you reading from cover to cover until its finished!
