Hideaway by Dean Koontz

This was a nice, creepy, little suspense novel. I liked the sci-fi twist. A fairly formulaic suspense base with some off-the-wall creeper-y added in. The little girl is fabulous. She does a lot for the story. She's very funny, lovable, completely endearing. The only disappointment was the ending. After all the imaginative creating Koontz did to get to the end the last bit was a little too... you know, just too, too... something. You know the sound you get when you're letting the air out of a balloon and the balloon is sort of flapping around making that spluttering, farting noise? The end of this book reminded me of that. The last couple of chapters start flapping around spluttering and farting. It's less attractive than you may think :0).
