Strange visions plague a man after he survives a near-death experience in this chilling thriller from #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz.

Surviving a car accident on a snowy mountain road is miraculous for Lindsey Harrison, but even more so for her husband, Hatch, who was clinically dead for eighty minutes.
After experimental procedures bring Hatch back to life, he awakens with the terrifying feeling that something is it out there. But it soon becomes apparent that the evil stalking Hatch is within him—a dark force of murderous rage that hides within us all...

Baker & Taylor
When Hatch Harrison is brought back to life in an ambulance, his second chance turns into a nightmarish quest to squelch the evil he brought back with him from the afterlife. Reissue.

Enjoyed this book immensely. You have to pay attention as the book moves from villain to hero back and forth a great deal. Loved the orphan girl they are interested in adopting, she was quite funny. Just read the afterword by Dean Koontz. He got hate mail for the first time due to this book. Atheists were furious that he mentioned God, and heaven. Death threats, but none where signed. Then he got on the bad side of the Unitarian bioethics movement (they think people over 55, or the sick need to be killed) later with the book One Door Away from Heaven with yet more hate mail. On a roll he then upset the anarchists by writing The Face. DRK is one of my favorite writers, and I shall enjoy his books even more now, after learning he writes what he likes despite getting threatened!

I love how the author balances the worst of the worst with the ordinary good of this world! Yes - some gruesome sections but some beautiful ones too! Loved this book!

For those of you who found this "yucky" or "gross", you probably shouldn't be reading from the horror genre ! I read this years ago, and, as with the majority of Koontz's books, couldn't put it down. Long may he continue writing :-)
