Extreme evil; extreme goodness

In the midst of extreme evil, there is extreme goodness. That is the message I got from reading Dean Koontz's book, The Good Guy. In fact, that is also the message of his other book, The Husband. In both books the evil guy had a dysfuncitionl childhood. In the Good Guy the antagonist can't even remember his childhood. He is a hired killer with a tech support team behind him. It was a case of mistaken identity that got Tim the protagonist involved in this story in the first place. In the end, it turns out Tim was in the right place at the right time to protect Linda, the target of the hired killer.

The Good Guy reminded me of the other book club selection, The Last Breed by Louis L'Amour. Both books involved the bad guy chasing after the good ones. It's a battle of the minds. Both the good and the bad are equally intelligent and the challenge for the good guys is to stay one step ahead of the bad guys and defeat them.

Get ready book club members to talk about The Husband on the third Friday of January.

To all those who read my blog from every corner of the globe, affirmation by affirmation, day by day, go out and radiate peace, love, prosperity in your corner.
