Frank Pollard awakens in an alley, knowing nothing but his name—and that he is in great danger. Having taken refuge in a motel, he wakes again only to find his hands covered in blood. As far as he knows, he's no killer. But whose blood is this, and how did it get there? Over the next few days Frank develops a fear of sleep, because each time he wakes he discovers strange objects in his hands and pockets—objects far more frightening than blood.Husband-and-wife detective team Bobby and Julie Dakota specialize in high-ticket corporate security investigations, but when a distraught and desperate Frank Pollard begs them to watch over him, they can't refuse. Out of compassion—and curiosity—they agree to get to the bottom of his mysterious, amnesiac fugues.It seems a simple job: just follow a client who wants to be watched and tell him where he winds up. But as the Dakotas begin to discover where their client goes when he sleeps, they are drawn slowly into ever-darkening realms where they encounter the ominous figure stalking Frank. Their lives are threatened, as is that of Julie's gentle, Down's-syndrome brother, Thomas.To Thomas, death is 'the bad place' from which there is no return. But Julie and Bobby—and their tortured client—ultimately learn that equally bad places exist in the world of the living, places so steeped in evil that in contrast death seems almost a relief.…Praise for Dean Koontz'A master storyteller, sometimes humorous, sometimes shocking, but always riveting. His characters sparkle with life. And his fast-paced plots are wonderfully fiendish, taking unexpected twists and turns.' —The San Diego Union-Tribune'One of our finest and most versatile suspense writers.' —The Macon Telegraph & News'His prose mesmerizes…Koontz consistently hits the bull's-eye.' —Arkansas Democrat'An exceptional novelist…top-notch.' —Lincoln Journal-Star

    A very enjoyable read. Typical Koontz, mixture of drama, paranormal, and adventure.

    I really liked this book. I was enthralled from beginning to end. Some of the plot was weird at times, but it was interesting. There were times that I was verbally aghast. Good read!

    Great book..solid plot and conclusive ending....Koontz could have/should have left the small sci fi / alien twist out of it...distracted from primary plot...only reason I didn't give it a 5.

    The problem with Dean Koontz novels is that they are so hit or miss when it comes to writing style and holding interest, not to mention character development. This book was a total miss. Overall it followed the usual Koontz formula of disgusting description designed to make you dislike a character although there's no real basis, repetitive epiphany (often shared) that there is a god, horrific creature(s) created by man and therefore doomed, and characters with disabilities that make them better than anyone else in the book, thus angels. Unfortunately, there was no redeeming, interesting character to pull you in, the gory descriptions were over the top, and the verbal exposition was heavy-handed to the point of parody. I kept going to find out the WHY of it all and was fairly disappointed. There are much better written Koontz books to try, give this one a skip.

    This is a very interesting book, typical Dean Koontz, He is a lot like Stephen King, keep you amazed at the things he comes up with. This book gives you a whole new outlook on Downs Syndrome; at least it did for me.

    This was my first introduction to Koontz, an alumni of where I teach. I found him a bit too intense for me.
