I'm not a Dean Koontz fan at all but I loved this book. I plan to read the rest of the series as well. The idea of someone seeing dead people has definitely been used before but I found the ideas to be presented in a unique way. The main character was extremely likable. The book was a pretty quick read, decently fast paced so it can keep you interested. There was also great humor in the book to break up the sad parts which I liked.
