Summary
  • "A major new work of dark literary, psychological suspense--brilliantly paced with a twisting narrative and chilling antagonists--from #1 bestselling author Dean Koontz. "I very much need to be dead." These are the chilling words left behind by a man who had everything to live for--but took his own life. In the void that remains stands his widow, surrounded by questions destined to go unanswered unless she does what all the grief, fear, confusion, and fury inside her demand: Find the truth, no matter what. There is no one else to speak for him--or the others who have followed him into death at their own hands. Though people of talent and accomplishment, people admired and seemingly happy and sound of mind, have recently been committing suicide in surprising numbers, no one else is willing to give up everything just to seek, to find, to know. No one except her. But ahead lies only risk. Because those arrayed against her are legion, and dangerously devoted to protecting something profoundly important--or terrifying--enough to exterminate any and all in their way. Too many have already died, and those responsible will learn that all their malevolent power may not be enough to stop a woman as clever as they are cold-blooded, as relentless as they are ruthless--and who is driven by a righteous rage they can never comprehend. Because it is born of love. ACCLAIM FOR DEAN KOONTZ "Dean Koontz is a prose stylist whose lyricism heightens malevolence and tension.

  • near-Dickensian powers of description, and an ability to yank us from one page to the next that few novelists can match."--Los Angeles Times "Perhaps more than any other author, Koontz writes fiction perfectly suited to the mood of America. novels that acknowledge the reality and tenacity of evil but also the power of good. [and that] entertain vastly as they uplift."--Publishers Weekly"--
