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

    "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.

    "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.

    "Terrible"

    I love Dean Koontz, but I just couldn't get into this book. It is in large part due to the narrator. His voice is boring, sleep inducing. There isn't much of a difference in the voicing of the various characters.

    The story itself was too predictable and unexciting. I only made it through 3 hours of listening before returning the book. Considered returning after the first 10 minutes due to narration. Was hoping the story would make it worthwhile.

    Very disappointing.

    "Another gem, great story and excellent narration"

    I will admit that for a while there I thought that I had picked a dud! the story started slowly enough with a lot of attention to descriptive prose.

    But I hung in there and it was worth the read.

    Another Koontz gem.

    "Great Koontz!"

    I really enjoyed this book and listened to it in just a couple of days. It had all the elements I like in a story: suspense, mystery, a little Sci-fi, etc. Although I tend to think of Koontz as a B writer, I call this one an A. I thought it was creative and not too far fetched.

    I do not agree that he forces his religious views on others or shows disdain for people who don't agree with him. The religious/spiritual parts of the book are small and appropriate.

    I also do not agree that the book starts slow. The beginning is slower but normal as he builds the story into fairly quick action. I don't think you'll be disappointed.

    The narrator was pretty good, although I smiled at his mispronunciation of a couple of words. Overall, great story, great listen.

    "Great Book"

    I always enjoy Dean Koontz books. This was no exception. Will read more as he writes them.
