    velocity Might Be Read As A Flat-out Exercise In Escapist Depravity - In Other Words, Par For The Course In Popular Crime Fiction - Were It Not For The Author's Nonstop Idiosyncrasies. Say This For Mr. Koontz: He Is Skillful In Ways That Make velocity Live Up To Its Title, And Nobody Will Ever Accuse Him Of Formulaic Writing. He Starts This Book With A Death By Garden Gnome. (the Gnome Was Made Of Concrete. Henry Wasn't.) He Includes A Sweet Young Woman Who Believes She Is A Haruspex (a Reader Of Entrails). In A Further Oblique Nod To Scrabble, He Makes Billy A Woodcarver Who Likes Listening To Zydeco.
