Although some would describe Life Expectancy as suspense, I feel that there are roots grounded in horror. So, okay, the cover doesn't look like much. And yes, it does remind me of that one Goosebumps book: The Cuckoo Clock of Doom. But the story itself, a man who knows he will have five horrid days in his life just screams terror. This was the first book I read of Dean Koontz and I've been chugging along trying to see if Koontz could recapture that lightning in a bottle. Sadly, after reading nine of his titles, it doesn't look like I'll have a terrifying ride as I've had with this one. If anyone out there knows of a good Dean Koontz title that is completely underated, be sure to let me know in the comments section.
