Although accident victim Hatch Harrison dies en route to the hospital, a brilliant physician miraculously resuscitates him. Given this second chance, Hatch and his wife Lindsey approach each day with a new appreciation of the beauty of life - until a series of mysterious and frightening events brings them face to face with the unknown.

Although Hatch was given no glimpse of an afterlife during the period when his heart had stopped, he has reason to fear that he has brought a terrible presence back with him... from the land of the dead.

When people who have wronged the Harrisons begin to die violently, Hatch comes to doubt his own innocence - and must confront the possibility that this life is just a prelude to another, darker place.

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 :-)
