A quick read that will be enjoyable to Koontz fans.

The second paragraph of the book contrasts the protagonist with a delicate mayfly skating on the water:

At six foot three, weighing two hundred ten pounds, with big hands and bigger feet, Timothy Carrier could not maintain a profile as low as that of a skating mayfly…

And when in a hotel room with a woman on the run from a psychopathic hit man:

His reflection in the glass dismayed him. He looked like a bear. A big, clumsy disheveled, clueless bear. No wonder she kept her eyes closed.

(Before you start feeling sorry for Tim: he’s a past & present hero, and settles down with the girl in the end.)

One point though….6′ 3″, 210lbs, and the text implies that the guy is a giant ???  😉
