A catastrophic, unexplainable plane crash leaves three hundred and thirty dead -- no survivors. Among the victims are the wife and two daughters of Joe Carpenter, a Los Angeles Post crime reporter. A year after the crash, still gripped by an almost paralyzing grief, Joe encounters a woman named Rose, who claims to have survived the crash. She holds out the possibility of a secret that will bring Joe peace of mind. But before he can ask any questions, she slips away. Driven now by rage (have the authorities withheld information?) and a hope almost as unbearable as his grief (if there is one survivor, are there others?), Joe sets out to find the mysterious woman. His search immediately leads him into the path of a powerful and shadowy organization hell-bent on stopping Rose before she can reveal what she knows about the crash. Sole Survivor unfolds at a heart-stopping pace, as a desperate chase and a shattering emotional odyssey lead Joe to a truth that will force him to reassess everything he thought he knew about life and death -- a truth that, given the chance, will rock the world and redefine the destiny of humanity.… (meer)

I'm steadily working my way through Dean Koontz's collection and as his books go, Soul survivor is pretty average. Don't get me wrong, Koontz's average writing is far better than most other authors best work and you will enjoy this book but he has done better. 77 shadow street for me, is the standard that I judge his other works by.

There are some good plot twists but the story just didn't grab me. To be honest I was rooting for the lake creature. ( )

Not a bad book by any means. Koontz is good at what he does. I admit I was spoiled after reading From the Corner of His Eye. Nothing he has done touches that story. This one is pretty good. I knew there would be some kind of scientific or unnatural twist to this and I should have seen it coming. ( )

The plot begins with character—a man deeply depressed by the loss of his family; a sole survivor who would rather prefer not to survive. He watches the waves; and the reader, swiftly drawn in, watches with him. Then things change. Soon, Dean Koonz’s Sole Survivor is a fast-flowing tale of danger and mystery. There may be another “sole survivor” out there, and Joe is chased by strangers with complex technological resources and apparent immunity to use them. With his own life in danger, he’s desperate to learn what really happened on the flight that killed his family.

Sole Survivor starts slow, speeds up, and pulls the reader along with fascinating questions and mystery. Through twists and turns of plausible solutions that fast become implausible, the author brings readers to that ultimate question—how on earth can the story end?

Fitting and resolving the plot perfectly, the author does end the tale, with mysteries of life beyond life entwining together with mysteries of terrifying death. If I’m oddly unsatisfied at the resolution, that probably says more about me than the book, and I really enjoyed the read.

Disclosure: I had just flown. How could I resist? ( )

Wow that was a freaky read! I was mega nervous for most of it, and I didn't see many of the turns coming. ( )

The sky is deep, the sky is dark.
The light of the stars is o damn stark.
When I look up, I fill with fear,
if all we have is what lies here,
this lonely world, this troubled place,
then cold dead stars and empty space . . .
Well, I see no reason to persevere,
no reason to laugh or shed a tear,
no reason to sleep and none to wake,
No promises to keep and none to make.
And so at night I still raise my eyes
to study the clear but mysterious skies
that arch above us, cold as stone.
Are you there God? Are we alone?

To the memory of Ray Mock, my uncle, who long ago moved on to a better world.

In my childhood, when I was troubled and despairing, your decency and kindness and good humour taught me everything I even needed to know about what a man should be.
