If you are starting to explore Koontz volume of work, start here or with a book by the name of Phantoms. This is prime written work by one of the better horror genre authors. Koontz delivers good dilaogue, prose, tension and many authentic humanistic qualities to his characters, which is why we all keep reading, (isn't it?). So yes, it is worth the four bucks to get it.
If you have read several newer novels by Koontz, this older one will seem very similar...toward a few other story-lines, but slightly different. It will seem almost too familiar if you are pretty critical about a ground-breaking plot scheme.

Midnight is the first Koontz novel to go best seller. The small community of Moonlight Cove is the setting for a sinister billionaire/scientist's "experiment". An FBI agent (Sam Booker), a documentary maker (Tessa Lockland) and a young girl (Chrissie Foster) must connect to try and survive this crisis, before midnight when the change is complete. Why is everyone in Moonlight Cove filled with maniacal fear? Can the main characters stay alive long enough to discover the truth? All in all, it's not amongst Koontz's five best novels, but it's good nonetheless.
