Author Info
Dean R. 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.
"Masterfully styled, serious entertainment."
"An exciting story....Mr. Koontz is a master of his trade."
From the Publisher
Annotation A airplane crash robs Los Angeles crime reporter Joe Carpenter of his happy life with his wife and two daughters, who perished in the accident. While visiting their graves, Carpenter spies a woman photographing the site and watches in horror as she is harassed by several toughs. He discovers that the mysterious woman is a genetic scientist who survived the crash, although her luck may be running out as a murderous corporation closes in on her in pursuit of a groundbreaking scientific discovery she has made. Was the plane crash a product of corporate acquisitiveness? Koontz has much to say on the subject of greed in this mystery cum sci-fi thriller.
First Line At two-thirty Saturday morning, in Los Angeles, Joe Carpenter woke clutching a pillow to his chest, calling his lost wife's name in the darkness. The anguished and haunted quality of his own voice had shaken him from sleep. Dreams fell from him not all at once but in trembling veils, as attic dust falls off rafters when a house rolls with an earthquake.
