Dean Koontz writes a chilling thriller in Mr Murder, a tale of one family... and a deadly killer. Perfect for fans of Richard Laymon and Stephen King.
'The resounding variations Mr. Koontz plays on this good story, here craftily retold... allow him to counterpoint the new horrors about us with the old horrors already inside us' - The New York Times Book Review
For author Martin Stillwater, life couldn't be more perfect. He and Paige are happy together; their two daughters, Emily and Charlotte, are intelligent and healthy; and his novels are achieving long-hoped-for levels of success. So why does he feel such dread and experience sudden blackouts?
The killer doesn't know his own name, only the name he uses. He has no family, no friends, no home. He cannot recall who gives him his assignments, and he doesn't know why his targets must die. Now, however, he senses that in a town he can't yet envision, a life awaits him, a place to call home, with family and friends.
Charlotte knows something is wrong: the man moves and sounds like Daddy, but he doesn't smile as quickly or as often as usual. And when he does smile, he seems to be pretending. Daddy isn't Daddy.
'Many spectacular, nail biting sequences'
'Exciting from start to finish. This masterful writer took me on a roller-coaster ride of emotions'
'One of Dean Koontz' best books... suspenseful and difficult to put down'
