The Vision

Uploaded by Admin on Nov 27, 1999

Most people are skeptical about psychics and psychic powers. In the book The Vision by Dean Koontz, there arises a real convincing psychic Mary, who has visions of murders that are yet to happen. But, a new twist to the story causes Mary to see a different kind of vision. Murders more gruesome than ever. More difficult to see. Harder to pursue. All these factors cause the reader, and possibly Mary to wonder who are the ones who really care for her. Can the murderer possibly be someone she loves? Or maybe a haunting truth about the past.

The true identity of the murderer is not clear until the end of the book. Max Bergen, Mary's husband, and Alan Tanner, Mary's brother, each try to help Mary pursue her visions to catch the killer, and to free Mary's life of the horrible stress that encompasses her. But Max and Alan don't get along very well. Alan feels that Mary could have picked a better man to marry, because he believes that all Max is after is Mary's money, and that Max doesn't...
