Sisters go home to a small town to find it completely wiped out and no logical cause for all the death and/or disappearances. They, with help from a few others, try and find what has happened to this town and how to prevent it from happening to them.

The review of this Book prepared by Monica Hughes

Truthfully, there is so much to tell about this book, This is an Excellent read, straight from the start of this book there are 350 people missinf in this town of Snowfield, California.. As it leads on more and more things happen that cause a group of people from scientists, doctors, ploice and military to help to destroy this. And although the character in the books are fictional, many of the mass disappearances that Koontz refers to are not figments of Koontz's imagination, they really happened.. I hope you enjoy this book as much as I have... It is definetely worth it to keep and read time and time again..+
