Publisher's Summary

Martin Stillwater has a vivid imagination. It charms his loving wife, delights his two little daughters, and gives him all the inspiration he needs to write his highly successful mystery novels. But maybe Martin’s imagination is a bit too vivid.

One rainy afternoon, a terrifying incident makes him question his grip on reality. A stranger breaks into his house, accusing Martin of stealing his wife, his children—and his life. Claiming to be the real Martin Stillwater, the intruder threatens to take what is rightfully his. The police think he’s a figment of Martin’s imagination. But Martin and his family have no choice but to believe the stranger’s threat. And run for their lives. But wherever they go—wherever they hide—he finds them.

©1993 Dean Koontz (P)2010 Penguin

    "an edge of your seat"

    thriller. Never dull, always had my attention. Dean Koontz did not let me down.

    "Very creepy..."

    Very interesting Koontz book, and I've listened to many of them. The first part of the book is very, very, creepy. It made me more anxious than I think any book has ever done. In fact, if I was feeling anxious about something else, I had to stop listening as it felt overwhelming. Eventually things level out when the "good guys" begin to fight back. Very interesting villains. I enjoyed the narration; he reflected the thought processes of the double in an intriguing way. Not my favorite Koontz, but one I certainly will remember.

    "Just OK"

    MOST of the first part of this book was absolutely BORING... I was about ready to stop the read but glad I didn't. If you can get thru several several chapters keep on reading. I wouldn't say this was one of Koontz best but it was a nice read especially Part 2. I like my books to grab me at the very beginner and this one certainly did not.

    I focus on fiction, sci-fi, fantasy, science, history, politics and read a lot. I try to review everything I read.

    "A good Koontz, weak ending, but worth it."

    I am a sucker for a good Koontz and this is pretty good. The bad guys are a bit more dimensional than a bad Koontz, and the good guys are nicely developed. It ends a little weak, but I really liked it.

    "Didn't expect the end"

    even though this book is a few years old, I still liked some of the scientific stiff even if it's not necessarily true... was a good ending

    "Too creepy...."

    This is the first Dean Koontz book I could not finish. Ordinarily, his books are so unique, well written and well produced as an audiobook that I can't stop listening. This one has no technical flaws, it just nearly gave me an anxiety attack every time I restarted it. My spouse got farther than I did but couldn't finish it either. We should probably return it.

    "Loved the ride"

    What a great storyteller! (And the reader, is excellent, too). I hate it when the protagonist of the book is as smart than the reader. It's annoying when lack of communication for no good reason, or inability to connect the dots the way the reader has, leads you to watch them blunder into avoidable problems. It was a relief to have Marty and his wife know what I know, but it was also scarier. I haven't read a book this riveting in ages! So creepy in the beginning, I wasn't sure I was made of brave enough stuff to continue! But the main characters were so lovely … the voices of real people, a real family, and a great dad made me want to know if he'd/they'd be okay. Great book. My first by this author.

    Story
    "Intriguing twists and turns"
    If you could sum up Mr. Murder in three words, what would they be?

    Psychological sci-fi thriller


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mr. Murder?

    Paige and Marty find themselves being doubted by a police officer, their anger intensifies to irrepressible laughter


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the girls chatter proves to be more than the villein can handle.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    What if the bad guy didn't know he was a bad guy?


    Any additional comments?

    Interesting plot left me suspicious of true nature of the story in the beginning. The clues finally accumulated to a point of sufficient knowledge, but the power of the characters kept me entranced through the entire book. I'd like a copy of the children's book.
