EYES OF DARKNESSDEAN KOONTZ Book Number: 87988 Product format: Paperback
Written in 1981, Dean Koontz's thriller predicted the current Coronavirus pandemic of 2020 sweeping the world, emanating from Wuhan, China. Wuhan-400 is a lethal virus, and this book is so prophetic, you really can't believe it. Tina Evans can think of no better time for a fresh start. It has been a year of unbelievable heartache since her son Danny's death. Now the Vegas show that has directed her is about to première, so she vows to put her grief behind her. Only there is a message for Tina, scrawled on the blackboard in Danny's old bedroom: NOT DEAD. Is it someone's idea of a grim joke, or something far more sinister? The search for an answer drives Tina through the neon clamour of Las Vegas nightlife, the sun-scorched desert, the frozen mountains of the High Sierra. People face a dreadful danger as buried truth struggles to surface, a truth so frightening that its secret may be kept at the price of a life - any man, any woman, any child. A top-secret government agency is determined to stop Tina from uncovering the truth about the tragic accident, and that Danny may not be dead after all. What we discover is that Danny has recovered from the lethal virus Wuhan-400 so 'they' have experimented to see how many times he can recover before it kills him. A terrific thriller of dark, secretive governmental forces, a bit of romance, and ordinary people facing evil. Underlying it all is the reality of bio-chemical weaponry. 324pp in paperback.
