Koontz goes into flat-out horror mode with this utterly terrifying new release. The building itself is almost a character and the ensemble cast of characters each give witness to the unspeakable terror approaching. You will be sleeping with the lights on after reading this one!

Built in the 1800s as a tycoon’s mansion, the Pendleton is now a luxury apartment building. Among its residents are a disgraced ex-senator, a songwriter and her son, a widowed attorney, wealthy elderly sisters and a hit man. Every 38 years mysterious disappearances and violent murders occur, and as the anniversary approaches, attorney Silas Kinsley investigates. Former Marine Bailey is nearly attacked in the pool. Senator Blandon’s ride in the elevator does not end well. As creepy things begin to manifest, the residents must band together to survive. (BANTAM, Jan., 460 pp., $28.00)
