Martie Rhodes is a successful young computer games designer with a loving husband, Dusty, and a seemingly normal life. Her best friend, Susan, however, suffers from agoraphobia, or a fear of open spaces, and relies on Martie to take her to weekly therapy sessions. Suddenly and inexplicably, Martie herself begins exhibiting worrying signs of a mental disorder, fearing herself capable of inflicting great harm on her loved ones. At the same time, Dusty's brother Skeet also succumbs to irrational mental behavior and tries to throw himself from a roof. It soon becomes clear that these four characters are involved in something much more than a sinister coincidence.

Great value and fast shipping! Would defiitely purchase an item of this nature again through Overstock.com as it would have cost much more purchasing it at a book store or a retail store. Read full review

Painfully ridiculous, this book loses any credibility it starts with the more you read it. The plot is absurd, the antagonist is a poor stereotype, and the only reason I wanted to finish it was to say I had finished it. I had never read anything by Koontz, and while his writing isn't bad, it's not good. Also, while cell phones weren't owned by everyone at that time the book was written, many people did, and it would've solved pretty much everything. Dr. Yen Lo is probably the only person I could imagine recommending this as a serious read.
