At thirty-four, Internet entrepreneur Ryan Perry seemed to have the world in his pocket - until the first troubling symptoms appeared out of nowhere. Within days, he's diagnosed with incurable cardiomyopathy and finds himself on the waiting list for a heart transplant; it's his only hope, and it's dwindling fast. Ryan is about to lose it all, his health, his girlfriend Samantha, and his life. One year later, Ryan has never felt better. Business is good and he hopes to renew his relationship with Samantha. Then the unmarked gifts begin to appear - a box of Valentine candy hearts, a heart pendant. Most disturbing of all, a graphic heart surgery video and the chilling message - Your heart belongs to me. In a heartbeat, the medical miracle that gave Ryan a second chance at life is about to become a curse worse than death. For Ryan is being stalked by a mysterious woman who feels entitled to everything he has. She's the spitting image of the twenty-six-year-old donor of the heart beating steadily in Ryan's own chest.

Awesome Thriller

User Review  - Ronnilynn - Borders

Dean Koontz has done it again with yet another thriller that keeps you on the edge of your seat. I found this particular book very hard to put down. Read the entire book in the course of a day (in between interruptions of course!). Highly recommend. Read full review

I,ve read several of Koontz books over the years, and I am always compelled by the oddness of them. In general, the first few pages either capture me or bore me. I should have put down early as the descriptions were so lengthy I thought I was reading a high school essay on a particular scene - a sure sign that it has been a struggle. I am fairly well educated at university, though at times I think you needed a PHD in English literature to decipher the language style, or maybe I wasn't understanding the 'subtext' of the story, which was often mentioned - why?? The story was weak and the characters didn't make sense or any solid connections. I think this book was either a struggle to come up with anything to meet the deadline, or it was written under the influence of a substance, though it lacked the mastery of all those great songs from the past done in the same manner. It reminded me of the TV series Lost. I usually buy books, so glad on this occasion it was a visit to the library. Sorry, didnt get it, though kind of got the message at the end, though the build up seemed weakly related.
