Martie Rhodes, a happily married, successful video games designer, takes an agoraphobic friend to therapy sessions twice a week. Each trip is a grim ordeal, but the experience has brought the two friends even closer together.

Then, one morning, Martie experiences a brief, irrational but disquieting fear of... her shadow. When autophobia - one of the rarest and most intriguing phobias known to psychology - is diagnosed, suddenly, radically her life changes, and her future looks dark.

Martie's husband, Dusty, loves her profoundly, and is desperate to understand the cause of her autophobia. But as he comes closer to the terrible truth, Dusty himself starts showing signs of a psychological disorder even more frightening than that afflicting Martie...

`Koontz`s art is making the reader believe the impossible... sit back and enjoy it` * Sunday Telegraph *
`A master of the thriller genre` * Washington Post *
`Koontz redefines suspense` The Times
`He combines rich, evocative prose, some of the warmest - and also some of the most despicable - characters to be found in fiction, technical speculations that seem to come directly from today`s headlines and a sense of on-the-edge-of-the-seat pacing to create thrillers that are not just convincing, but thought-provoking as well` * Mystery Scene *
`Koontz`s style bleaches out cliches while showing a genius for detail` Publishers Weekly
`A moral fable for the turn of the millennium, an engagingly written, hugely entertaining parable for our times` * The Times *

`A master of the thriller genre` Washington Post
`Fast and furious... like a hospital trolley on a toboggan run` * Mail on Sunday *

`Koontz presents a unique fictional world well-grounded in convincing detail. Readers will be riveted to the narrative. Koontz`s familiar theme of life`s victims surviving the odds emerges here as forcefully as it does in SOLE SURVIVOR and INTENSITY, but Snow`s physical limitations give it a more dangerous and intriguing edge` * Publishers Weekly *

`Koontz can really spook, and his dialogue and pacing rival the best` New York Post
Praise for SOLE SURVIVOR
`Masterfully styled, serious entertainment. These are Koontz`s great years` Kirkus Reviews

`A fast-paced read` Mail on Sunday

“Brilliant!”

Dean Koontz is on top form in this tense book, full of plot twists to keep you guessing. It is quite long but the pace is sustained very well.

“Classic Koontz.”

Another masterpiece by Koontz with his usual mix (that being laughter, sorrow, shock and countless hour of sleep lost due to being engaged in the book). As always with Koontz the characters are realistic and relatable... More

This was my first Dean Koontz read, and it had been recommended to me by several friends.
