From the Publisher:
Christopher Snow is the best-known resident of 12,000-strong Moonlight Bay, California. This is because 28-year-old Chris has xeroderma pigmentosum (XP)--a light-sensitivity so severe that he cannot leave his house in daylight, cannot enter a normally-lit room, cannot sit at a computer. Chriss natural element is the night, and his parents, both academics, chose to live in Moonlight Bay because in a small town Chris can make the nightscape his own--roaming freely through the town on his bike, surfing in the moonlight, exploring while most people sleep.But Chriss brilliant mother, a scientist, was killed in a car accident 2 years ago, and as the book opens his father, Steven Snow, is dying of cancer; Chriss protected life is about to change forever. We meet Chris as he is carefully preparing himself to go out in the late-afternoon sun to visit the hospital. In his last moments of life his father tells Chris he is "sorry" and that Chris should "fear nothing"--cryptic words that Chris cannot really relate to.Steven Snows body is removed to the hospital basement for transport to the funeral home/crematorium, and when Chris goes downstairs for a final moment of farewell, he witnesses a frightening and clandestine encounter: the funeral director and another man Chris doesnt recognize are substituting the body of a hitchhiker for Steven Snows body--which is being taken not to the crematorium but to some secret destination.For Chris, this scene is the first intimation of a conspiracy that he will come to realize envelopes many of his townspeople. His parents knew of it and wanted to protect Chris from it. His best friend has had hints of something wrong because of the frightening nocturnal visitors that have come to his beachhouse. And the first person to try to explain to Chris whats going on--and warn him about the special danger he himself is in--will be hideously murdered.In the 24 hours this book encompasses, Christopher Snow will find out that, sheltered though he's been, he has the soul of a fighter and an adventurer. By the end of the book he will have killed a man, will have discovered the role his own mother played in the birth of the conspiracy, will have come to recognize the extraordinary guardians that, unknown to him, have watched over him for years. He will realize that some people hate him, others revere him, and neither his own life nor those of anyone he knows will ever be the same.On sale in December! Reviewers agree that "Fear Nothing"--the chilling atmospheric tale of a young man who is forever united with the night--is Koontz's best work yet. Christopher Snow has a rare genetic disorder that leaves him dangerously vulnerable to light. He knows the night as no one else can--its mystery, its beauty, and the silken rhythms that seduce one into believing anything is possible, even freedom. Until the night Christopher witnesses a series of disturbing accidents that sweep him into a violent mystery only he can solve. LG main selection. National ads. Author publicity.

Annotation:
Christopher Snow suffers from a rare and fatal skin disease that keeps him out of the sun. Christopher's mother and, more recently, his father both died from the same disease. But now his father's corpse is missing, and the nurse who cared for him was found murdered after she voiced some unconventional theories. Christopher enlists his buddy, Bobby Halloway, to help him investigate. Along the way, Christopher and Bobby uncover some sinister secrets and a mysteriously empty military base, and realize that they can count only on each other to survive their adventure.
