Bestselling author Peter Straub's Koko is a gripping psychological thriller in which horror and paranoia are indistinguishable from reality. Koko . Only four men knew what it meant. Now they must stop it. They were Vietnam vets-a doctor, a lawyer, a working stiff, and a writer. Very different from each other, they are nonetheless linked by a shared history and a single shattering secret. Now, they have been reunited and are about to embark on a quest that will take from Washington, D.C., to the graveyards and fleshpots of the Far East to the human jungle of New York, hunting someone from the past who has risen from the darkness to kill and kill and kill.

This is suppose to be a best seller. I've read a few of his books, but this one is taking me so long. I've renewed it and I am just barely halfway through it. Maybe it's the whole context of the Viet Nam war and in such depth and in ways only a soldier can relate too? I don't know. I almost gave up a few times, but I am not a quitter, and hopefully I will find out who the killer is, because this is suppose to be a Trilogy. Sorry, Peter Straub, much as I love your weird and wonderful other stuff, I pass on the other 2.
