Annotation:
A man must wrestle with a dreadful fate in this supernatural thriller by master of psychological suspense Dean Koontz. What if you knew which days in your life would be the most pivotal--and the most perilous? Well, pastry chef Jimmy Tock knows. While Jimmy was being born, Jimmy's grandfather, lying on his deathbed, predicted that five terrible days would come in Jimmy's future--not including that particular day, during which a clown massacred several people in the very same hospital where both Jimmy and his grandfather were patients. The book charts the course of Jimmy's horrifying destiny over each of those five days, all of which occur in Jimmy's early adulthood.
Author Bio
Dean Koontz
Along with Stephen King, Koontz is the preeminent horror writer of his age, selling millions and millions of books worldwide. Koontz had a horrific childhood; his father was an abusive alcoholic and his mother was mentally unstable, and they both actively discouraged him from pursuing a writing career. However, when the 12-year-old Koontz won an essay contest, the seed was planted. He studied education and was a high school English teacher from 1967 to 1969, at which point he began writing full time. At the end of the '90s, Dean Koontz has written nearly 80 books of suspense or horror.
