Back Cover / Inside Flap:"On the road, on a hot Arizona night, Dylan O'Conner is overpowered by a stranger who injects him with an unknown substance. All he's told is that he's the "carrier," not of a disease but of something wondrous that will transform his life in remarkable ways - if it doesn't kill him in the next twenty-four hours.

Now Dylan, his autistic brother, Shep, and another "carrier," a young woman, are swept into a desperate search for the shattering truth of what thye are and what they might become. But first they must elude those sent to destroy them.

Their only chance to survive is to discover the meaning of the messages that Shep, with precious time running out, begins to repeat, about a man who does his work...

By the Light of the Moon."

Review:Dean Koontz takes the reader on a journey, through this book, that challenges the very edge of believability but brings about a wondrous message. Jilly is a young woman who has a set agenda and doesn't want any help from any one. Dylan tries to lead an orderly life while devoting it to helping his brother, Shep. And Shep tries to help them all by connecting the ideas they need to figure out the answer to what in the world has been injected in them and what they can do about it. As always, this is not only a well thought out book but also thoughtfully written. The ending will encourage even the most hard-hearted. I recommend!
