I've read: 77 shadow street

by Dean Koontz

I've read several Dean Koontz books before, a few in his Odd Thomas series and a couple of other ones as well. With Koontz I expect easy read, suspenseful and supernatural mysteries.
Perfect to read by the poolside, that is.

This story fulfilled all of these expectations. The setting is an old fancy mansion turned luxury condominiums -  the Pendleton - where strange things one day begin to happen. Strange, scary and deadly things. The various inhabitants that we get to know, like the single mom with an autistic daughter, the ex military now stockbroker, the old attorney, all come in to contact with things that seems to be ghosts, or monsters or maybe something worse?

This is one of those books where you can't really tell too much of the plot without revealing too many spoilers, but to summarize: it's scary in a good way. A few of the creatures the Pendleton inhabitants meet was described in such a way I could really see them in my mind, and it was not a pleasant experience. The story is told from the point of view of all the different people living at the house, and it is cool to see the plot develop through all of these different people eyes.

I liked it! Didn't love it, but liked it. Go ahead and read it if you want a modern scary story.
