From the #1 New York Times bestselling master of suspense comes a riveting thriller that probes the deepest terrors of the human psyche--and the ineffable mystery of what truly makes us who we are. Here a brilliant young man finds himself fighting for his very existence in a battle that starts with the most frightening words of all…

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.

And she's come to take it back.

Certainly a new writing style for Dean Koontz. I was not disappointed, I totally enjoyed every page. It's that kind of book where you are enjoying it you can't wait to get to the end to see what happens. Yet, you don't want it to end because you are enjoying it so much.

A disappointing one from an author I was begining to enjoy. Very slow - almost tedious from start to finish. Dont know what Koontz was thinking with this one ....

Very slow and not what I was expecting. I put it down after a few chapters and read the spoilers online.

Dean Koontz at his usual high level. The Brother Odd has been my favorite, but this tale is as complex and suspenseful as any I've read.

As with all of the books I have read by this author, the story starts out as boring and has more physical detail than I need to get the feel for the story line. As you get deeper into the book however, it gets harder to put it down because you want to know what comes next. I often have to refrain taking a peek at the ending...I don't want to spoil the very end of the story by knowing how it ends before I actually get there !!

I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to others.

Very interesting ending - even though there were clues, I still wasn't expecting it.

Not bad- I enjoyed the twist at the end. Suspenseful as usual.
