Back Cover / Inside Flap:"Frank Pollard is afraid to fall asleep. Every morning he awakes, he discovers something strange - like blood on his hands - a bizarre mystery that tortures his soul. Two investigators have been hired to follow the haunted man. But only one person - a young man with Down's syndrome - can imagine where their journeys might end. That terrible place from which no one ever returns..."


Review:This Dean Koontz novel is in turns poignant, infuriating, frustrating, absolutely interesting, and stupifying.

Bobby and Julie Dakota are a husband and wife detective team who eagerly work their tails off so that they can retire early to a coastal house and enjoy life outside of the rat race. Frank Pollard is a man who has a strange past, a mystifying present, and a terrifying future. They join up to try to figure out what in the world is going on...and discover that "in the world" now has a new meaning. You know that I love Koontz, and this is Koontz at his best. Enjoy!
