      Dean Koontz’s “Velocity” is a fast-pacing marvellously written thriller full of unexpected twists and surprising situations. Although the book is five hundred pages long, it’s possible to read it in no more than one or two days.

      The suspense is skillfully built from the very first pages, when Bill - the main character - finds a handwritten note on the


      windscreen of his car.

      The note contains a sick offer from a psycho: if Bill doesn’t go to the police, then a young and pretty scholteacher is gonna die, if he does, the same will happen to an elderly woman.

      And this is just the beginning of a perverse game.

      Similar notes and messages follow - and always it is Bill who ...


      • has to make difficult choices.

        The killer gradually attempts to ruin Bill’s life and make him go crazy.

        I think it’s one of the best written thrillers about psycho menace I read in years.

        Its excellence and superiority consists in portraying a conflict between a humble average man and a depraved pervert in a believeble and convincing way.

        Despite the sharp distintion

        between good and evil this book is not naive.

        The main character Billy, a local bartender, is easy to identify with since he’s real and lively.

        However, I enjoyed reading this book mainly because of fast and dynamic plot abounding in unexpected turns and perfectly portrayed background characters.

        If you’re a thriller lover and you like wellwritten stories about psycho-killers, this book is for you.
