Publisher's Summary

They found the town silent, apparently abandoned. Then they found the first body strangely swollen and still warm. One hundred fifty were dead, 350 missing. But the terror had only begun in the tiny mountain town of Snowfield, California....and closer...
At first, they thought it was the work of a maniac. Or terrorists. Or toxic contamination. Or a bizarre new disease....and closer...
But then they found the truth. And they saw it in the flesh. And it was worse than anything any of them had ever imagined.


What the Critics Say

"First-rate suspense, scary and stylish." (Los Angeles Times)
"Schirner's pacing and pitch respond to the story's context, and his characterizations of female characters are impressive." (AudioFile)

A master of terror

It's my first book by Koontz. I had heard so many good things about him that maybe I had set up my expectations way too high. Pure entertainment from a story that shows its ending from the middle of the book on. Yet, interesting overall.

Good story

Overall a good story to pass time with however the narrator leaves something to be desired. I almost returned the book because of it but in the end didn't.
