    1. (UPDATE: I first uploaded an unedited version of this review. Everything should be fixed now. My apologies for the slip up.)Buddy read with De-to-the-lee. While this is not one of Koontz's Black/Neon Berkeley books, it is one of his earliest novels. It was first published in 1975 under one of his more popular pen names, Leigh Nichols.Koontz-Alert Checklist (Every Dean Koontz book has at least one of the following ten things.)1. Blond lead/love interest - Yup2. Dog(s) - Nope 3. Government conspir [...]

    2. This hardcover is numbered 88 of 550 copies and is signed signed by Dean Koontz and Paul Parks on the limitation page.

    3. Oh, curse you, Dean Koontz! *shakes fist*For years, every time I pick up a Dean Koontz novel, I swear I'm not going to get obsessed with it. Every time, I end up reading it in a night or two."The Key to Midnight" was originally published in 1979 under the pseudonym, Leigh Nichols. In the Afterword, Koontz describes how he went back in 1995, with the intention of just giving it a little polish, when he ended up excising a great deal of it, then adding yet more. Then, he pretty much rewrote the wh [...]

    4. Not bad for an early Koontz read. Nice twist with Russian doppelgangers. Not heavy on horror, but definitely filled with mystery and questions. Is Joanna really Lisa? How can someone have their memory erased and altered so efficiently? This would make for a good spy movie, I think. Really entertaining with strong characters. I could completely picture the Russian body builders. Big galoots. Alex Hunter is a true hero to Joanna, though Joanna is a strong woman and a hero of sorts all on her own. [...]

    5. The book is cringe worthy.Seriously, there were passages when I was genuinely embarrassed for Koontz.The characters are as deep as a puddle of rain water left in the wake of a light early autumn rain, and as one dimensional as a drawing on a piece of baking paper made by a bored housewife while waiting for her pie to finish baking,this is of course in the spirit of "Koontzian adjectivism" which should be new genre in literature.Behold ladies and gentlemen, the following quotes may cause intensiv [...]

    6. There's a whole different atmosphere surrounding "The Key to Midnight" which is absent in earlier Koontz novels. It’s like we have a whole new genre of story than we’re used to, yet with clear elements of what we recognize as being Koontz’s work. A new level of maturity, bigger characters, lots of inner dialogue.Alex Hunter is a private detective with a suitable last name for that profession, who stumbled upon the victim of a twelve year old kidnapping case. Yet the woman in question has n [...]

    7. This was the first Dean Koontz novel I have read (at least that is what my memory is telling me) and this book was very disturbing. I think what really tossed it over the edge for me was the author's "Afterword" at the end of the book and I quote:"It's a simple tale, not a substantive one, that just wants to be liked and to give you a little fun. There's nothing wrong with a book like that; no writer must try to be Dostoyevsky every time he picks up a pen. Most people would agree that writing su [...]

    8. This novel was certainly interesting to say the least. A thrilling book about a woman, Joanna Rand, who had terrible nightmares of a man with a claw hand. When Alex Hunter arrives in Kyoto, Japan, he instantly recognizes Joanna as a missing girl from twelve years previously. The daughter of a United States senator. The two are set on a path of discovery to find the source of her chilling nightmares. As well as the reason why she was chosen to be implanted in a new life.The book takes many unexpe [...]

    9. I don't remember this one terribly well. One of Koontz's earlier ones, I think. Not bad but not his best. Of course, his best is really really good.

    10. It took me awhile to get into the book. turned out to be a great story. Good old style writing from Dean Koontz.I have continued to read this book as I'm know enjoying it. I'm glad I did not give up on itI'm having a hard time getting into this book. I'm not sure if it's the book or that my mind just keeps wandering because I have some bad things going on in my life right now. Will give the books a few more chapters and see what happens.

    11. I really liked this one! There are a handful of Koontz books I haven't read. I'm not sure if I'm "saving" them for some purpose, or what. I think it partly has to do with the fact that I exclusively read Koontz for so long that now I feel the need to make up for lost time with other authors; Koontz will always be my favorite, his story-telling and humor are unmatched, so I savor these last few unspoiled works of his. It wasn't perfect, but it was a very good offbeat romance/suspense story. It's [...]

    12. I'm torn between three and four stars. This is an early Koontz title (originally written back in 1979 - this is a partial rewrite from 1996). It's your TV movie of the week that you loved as a kid - a woman with a shadowy past meets an attractive male investigator, and together they try to find the key to midnight - to understand her dreams, where the man with steel fingers fills a hypodermic syringeIt's a nice, short book with several little twists and typical Koontz characters. I enjoyed the f [...]

    13. Although The Key to Midnight was not one of my favorite Koontz books, I did find it interesting because of my own curiosity about the mind. It's always intrigued, as well as scared me, that our minds can so easily be twisted into something we can't comprehend and our thoughts can be shoved away and replaced with programmed information. Koontz did surprise me towards the end with the twist on the father and the surprise with Alex. I thought it was worth the read, although a bit tedious. I wanted [...]

    14. I'm not sure how so many people seemed to love this book. I found it dated, irritating, and it left me just not caring at many points. In 1979, I'm sure all the brainwashing was viewed the "scary future" for government intrigue and sabotage. Now, there are far scarier things people are finding ways to do to each other. I do, however, feel like I learned things about Japan & Japanese culture I never would have known otherwise. I hope those items are at least real so I dont' feel like it was a [...]

    15. So far it's Ok. But it;s the first book in a while where I've actually thought about skipping to the end. It starts out really slow. There is a lot of detail about Japan as the story takes place there. It's a quick and dirty read, and a pretty flimsy story. But it's keeping me engaged--which is nice. And now its finished. Nice and quick denoument in the final two chapters. Definitely one of hiw earlier writings--as I saw some of the same elements I just read in Lightning. Pretty lame excuse for [...]

    16. In this book, Dean pretends to be a woman and writes a romantic mystery. I thought it was intriguing but personally prefer The House of Thunder which is a variation on a similar theme and also written by that same fake woman named Leigh Nichols.The Key to Midnight features some intense scenes and interesting twists.

    17. The Key to Midnight is one of those books that came out quite a while ago, but was revised several times. I think I read the most recent version. Although, I don’t think it changed my mind on any of it. Let’s see what I thought.Synopsis: Almost twelve years ago, American Joanna Rand arrived in Japan to become a singer in a nightclub. In all that time, she has never been able to escape the strange dream that haunts her night after night. Each time she awakens, she feels violated, used—and t [...]

    18. A very engaging mystery thriller, but with its ups and downs and sadly not the greatest main characters.First of all, the book didn’t thrill me throughout the first hundred pages which was mainly the case since I felt like the main characters aren’t properly introduced before the plot had fully taken off. I was then thrown into a mystery together with two not as interesting and unknown people which definitely hurt my enjoyment of it throughout a big portion of the beginning. Naturally, they [...]

    19. The key to midnightOriginally written under a pen name, this is the revised version by Dean Koontz. The story begins with silly female emotional claptrap, but gets a little better. It ends with just telling us what it's all about, rather than doing it through the story. And that's how the story ends, the two collaborate, fearing the CIA and writing out the whole story. If something happens will be released to the media.Alex Hunter is vacationing in Japan & that's where he sees her, Lisa Chel [...]

    20. Уф, още една слаба книга на Дийн Кунц и втората поредна след "Отвъдни очи" с тази разлика, че тази е още по-смотана. Сладникава любовна история тип "срещнах те преди два дни, но съм готов/а на всичко за теб", примесена с малко лъжливо минало и тайнствено настояще. Имам още няколк [...]

    21. Dean Koontz always delivers. Just good entertainment. You know the good guys are going to struggle, but they'll win in the end. Always a page turner. My only complaint is that he has a tendency to try too hard, e.g.:" the rapidly deepening twilight, the great city began to put on dazzling ornamental kimonos of neon." Really, Dean?

    22. Fast paced, but the first 60 pages were slow. The other fault is the motivation of the bad guys. Maybe back in 1979, when Koontz wrote it, the Russian communist conspiracy thing would have worked. In 2017, it doesn't. Still, it was an enjoyable book to read.

    23. My first Dean Koontz was 'The servants of twilight ' and I was instantly drawn to this prolific writer. Albeit this book doesn't exactly lean towards so much horror or suspense, it's still a beautiful piece.

    24. Totally and utterly boring. I powered through it though and can honestly say I read the final page and wish I had not.
