This is a multi faceted novel that blends mystery, suspense and intrigue with personal relationships involving phobias.
Two characters unknown to each other, both trying to stay alive. Addison, who can’t tolerate eye contact, and Gwyneth, who can’t tolerate being touched. Both on a collision course with death for different reasons. By chance, they meet and although nothing can be done about the peril Addison is in, he does join forces with Gwyneth to help her with her attempt to avoid being killed.
The relationship between Addison and Gwyneth that Dean Koontz built in this novel is bound by trust and personal sacrifice.
This is a well written novel with a totally unexpected twist at the end.
