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 After-Life 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.
For quite a few years now I've been a fan of Dean Koontz and this book isn't as good as some of this other book, but still a good read. A good storyline, and well written.
