      Velocity is such a good book! I really enjoyed it and will more than likely read it again. The story starts with lead character, “Billy” just working his usual shift as a bartender when a strange man comes in and orders a drink. After his shift ends and he is ready to go home, he finds a note on his windshield that says,

      If you don’t take this note to the police, I will kill a lovely blond school teacher.

      If you do take this note to the police, I will kill an elderly woman. You decide.

      ” Thinking it was just a sick joke, Billy ignores the note until the follwing day when he hears on the news that a teacher in the next town was ...


      • murdered in her home. She was blond and young.

        Having a friend on the police force that he grew up with, Billy gives him the note and tells him about the strange man in the bar the previous night. His friend, the policeman, decides to keep the information to himself because he wants to solve the case on his own and climb the

        ladder at work.

        Unfortuneatley, the notes keep coming and people keep dying. Even Billy’s friends, until the local police begin to suspect that he is the killer.

        I won’t tell you the rest and spoil the story for you. This is a fun read.

        It is fast paced, clever and entertaining. I had a hard time putting it down.

        In the Koontz vs. King arena, I tend to lean toward Koontz.
