Intensity - Dean Koontz
Author: Dean Koontz
Review and Overview of the book Intensity written by Dean Koontz.
A young woman named Chyna Shepard gets invited by her only close friend Laura Templeton to stay over for the weekend at her hometown in Napa Valley. Little did they know, a homicidal adventurer/killer intended to kill everybody in the Templeton's farmhouse. Suddenly, Chyna finds out she is the only one living in the farmhouse and as usual the "survivor" just like her past. Compelled to take action and not just hide and try to survive just like before, she decided to go and follow the killer and avenge the Templeton's death, specially Laura's.
Just like the title, the book is Intense since the killer (Edgler Foreman Vess), definetly lives for INTENSITY. There were times when it got a bit slow but it actually serves it's purpose. Most of the story took place within the 24-hours.
