YOUR HEART BELONGS TO ME
Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Suspense
This unique, introspective novel is broken into two sections -- pre- and post-heart transplant. More than anything, it's a strange journey into the mind of a man staring death in the face. Is he tormented or haunted? Devilishly clever Koontz focuses the story through the hero's prism, which is eerie and more than a little paranoid, for a tale that's thought provoking and inordinately chilling.
Thirty-four-year-old software genius Ryan Perry appears to have it all: money, success and a steady relationship. All that's threatened when he learns he has a serious heart condition that will kill him in a year without a transplant. Determined to survive, he works with high-priced doctors to find a match. Then a year after the transplant, the paranoia and haunted dreams Ryan thought he overcame return when strange gifts, like a valentine heart saying "Be Mine," begin appearing. Stalked by a strange young woman, he's disturbed by her claim that his new heart belongs to her. And she wants it back! (BANTAM, Dec., 337 pp., $27.00)
