Anyone who has read a Dean Koontz book will surely say he is a master at his work.

The Top TenXW


An amazing story of the corruption going on in todays science industry. -

Koontz says this is his favorite, the story he most enjoyed writing. I can see why. Fully realized characters you will take to heart. He really knows how to keep the suspense coming. If you are a dog lover this book will thrill you! THE POWER OF LOVE

I have read and re-read this book because it is so good! It is a rare thing for me to read a book more than once but this one is an exception. I love it and it has no dull moments!

First book I read of Dean's and still the best!

Again... a perfect book to show the corruption in government and science. -

Stands out even among excellent books.

Could not put it down! Totally awesome!

3Winter Moon

The one that lead me into the wonderful world of Koontz. Might there be something in the forest, amidst the pines, beneath the winter moon, lurking and waiting to become?


My personal favorite Koontz book. I've read it twice and I have encouraged others in my family to read it, and they all loved it as well

The best book I have ever read. It is so unique and lovable

5Tick Tock

This book is awesome! Read it for yourself because its really hard to explain. -

I was actually sad when I finished it because I wanted to know what was going to happen to the lovable characters

By far one of my favorite books of all time. It has so much suspense that you won't want to put the book down until you have finished it. Great read!

Awesome fast paced book hard to put down.

6Dragon Tears

Dragon tears was my first introduction to Koontz. Many years later and having read much of his work, the antagonist in this story is still my favorite.


The third Dean Koontz I've ever read and I'm not sorry at all. A great book. -


Intensity, in my opinion, is the touchstone by which all suspense thrillers should be measured. It is one of the rare books that never gets boring even during the middle of the book. It starts off in high gear, climbs into overdrive in the middle, and by the end, it is nothing short of pure nitro! It is a true masterpiece.

My daughter asked me to recommend a gripping book because she was bored with what she had been reading. She then yelled at me because she said she couldn't read this one at night. Laugh out loud It's that good. Following this gal as she travels right along with the killer had me looking over my shoulder the entire time I read this book. Such an excellent idea for a story but man, it scared the heck outta me at the same time.

The description's in the name. -

Most intense book I've ever read

Love this book. Have read the next 2 in the series as well, also very good.

My daughter recommended this to me and I could not read through the series fast enough. Cannot wait for the next one.

This is a great book and series! In my opinion, this book should be number 1 or 2 on any Dean Koontz list.

One of the great literature characters of all time. Should be tops on all lists.

10Cold Fire

Top of the line suspence. Great for a book report. Believe my A . - fireinside96

One of the 1st books I read from Koontz, and after many years and even more books, it's still in my top five favorites list!

The Contenders


This book scared the hell out of me. IT was two full months before I could go outside of my home after dark, alone. A must read.

Great atmosphere, the only book I really liked of this writer

One of the very best books I have read. Some of Deans other books have however not been a patch on this.

12Night Chills

"Truly awesome suspense novel about subliminal mind control. Would rank about sixth for most true Koontz fans. A fun and thrilling read."

So far my favorite. Fascinating and a fast read.

13From the Corner of His Eye

I have so many Dean Koontz favorites, and this one tops the list! I laughed, I cried, and was struck dumb in awe. The only fault I could find with this book was that it wasn't longer...

First book I read by Koontz. It made me want to read more. Too bad his writing isn't always this good.

I love the poetry of his words in every book. Where did this man come from?!

Amazing thriller that instantly got me hooked!

18Frankenstein: Prodigal Son

This is an amazing book where his forte, corruption in the science industry, is clearly seen. -

Absolutely top-notch Dean Koontz

19Fear Nothing

One of only a few books I've read more than once. Seize the Night was also worthy of a reread.

Love this book and sequel Seize the Night these are both great

Good read. Hard to put down.

20One Door Away from Heaven

DEFINITE. It should and so should from the corner of his eye

Should be in the top 5.. Whereis The Good GUY or From The Corner OF His Eye? Or by the light of the moon? Or Life Expectency?
