Frank Pollard awakens in an alley, knowing nothing but his name and that he is in great danger. Having taken refuge in a motel, he wakes again only to find his hands covered in blood. As far as he knows, he's no killer. But whose blood is this, and how did it get there? Over the next few days Frank develops a fear of sleep, because each time he wakes he discovers strange objects in his hands and pockets objects far more frightening than blood.

I enjoyed the story, and excellent characters, in particular the down syndrome boy was so good. Koontz's heroes are never perfect, and always interesting. The Pollard family of villains are particularly creepy, and disturbing.

Overall, good story I enjoyed. Altough it took me a long time to read it... The ending is just messed up tho...
