Martie is extremely happy and content with her life until one day she becomes afraid of her own shadow. Having a friend who is agrophobic and relies upon her support entirely, she tries to shrug off her fear. Her phobia increases to an extent whereupon she destroys everything in the house in her bid to expel any object she may be able to use to harm her beloved husband, Dusty - or herself.
Her husband suggests she see the same phychiatrist she takes her friend to, Dr. Ahriman.
Dusty has already taken his brother, Skeet to a care home for Drug addicts following a suicide attempt earlier in the day. Skeet went into a deep sleep upon Dusty's instructions.
Martie's friend is found dead in her apartment leaving a suicide note; however a message left on Marties answerphone quickly discounts such an end - and implies the murderer is none other than Dr Ahriman. A meeting with their own consultant, Dr.Closterman sends them on a bizarre trail to find out who is exactly behind the now evident 'brain-washing' with a race against time before they become the next victims.

This synopsis report prepared by Shawn
After unexplainable lapses in time and the sudden onset of autophobia, Marty and Dusty come to realize that they are puppets in a scheme to settle a score over twenty years in the past. They discover the puppeteer is a person close to them and put together the pieces of a puzzle that could end their lives. This is basically a re-hash of the ealier novel "Night Chills". They both revolve around 'brain-washing' and controlling people's subconcious.
This synopsis report prepared by J. E. Deaver
The underlying theme in this book is about the power of mind control. If you have read the book "The Manchurian Candidate", you'll love this thriller. Lots of action and suspense. You are never sure about whether the protagonist will be able to muster the where-with-all to defeat the principal villan.

pyschiatrist plays mind games on women and anyone involved with the particular women as revenge for a bad childhood and parents. What happens at the end to the dr. and what leads him to do these mind crimes is totally amazing!
