Description from the Publisher

Since his wife, Michelle, left seven years ago, Jeffy Coltrane has worked to maintain a normal life for himself and his eleven-year-old daughter, Amity, in Suavidad Beach. It’s a quiet life, until a local eccentric known as Spooky Ed shows up on their doorstep.

Ed entrusts Jeffy with hiding a strange and dangerous object—something he calls “the key to everything”—and tells Jeffy that he must never use the device. But after a visit from a group of ominous men, Jeffy and Amity find themselves accidentally activating the key and discovering an extraordinary truth. The device allows them to jump between parallel planes at once familiar and bizarre, wondrous and terrifying. And Jeffy and Amity can’t help but wonder, could Michelle be just a click away?

Jeffy and Amity aren’t the only ones interested in the device. A man with a dark purpose is in pursuit, determined to use its grand potential for profound evil. Unless Amity and Jeffy can outwit him, the place they call home may never be safe again.

Thrilling Reads Book Review

Dean Koontz continues to be at the top of his game with his latest thriller ELSEWHERE. Not surprising to find sci-fi in a Koontz book, but this is also a thriller with some excellent action and suspense full of twist and turns.

The story is about a father and daughter trying to live a normal life until an eccentric known as Spooky Ed shows up on their doorstep.

Ed entrusts them with a device they’re not supposed to use. Not longer after ominous men show up and Jeffy accidentally actives the device.

This sets up a thrilling chain of events. Will Jeffy use the device to find his missing wife? Not surprisingly shady and powerful forces want the device so they have to go on the run with a man with dark purposes in pursuit.

I enjoyed the book. It was a fun read. This book more closely reads like Koontz other more sci-fi thrillers. I’m not a huge fan of sci-fi but Koontz delivers on the thriller and suspense side to make this worth a read.
