E se l'incidente che le ha portato via suo figlio non fosse mai avvenuto? È trascorso un anno da quel giorno fatale in cui Tina Evans ha perso suo figlio Danny e anche se la sua vita è cambiata per sempre, ora sta finalmente iniziando ad accettarlo. Il successo nel lavoro, un incontro di passione e sentimento... tutto sembra rimettersi al posto giusto. Ma le basta confondere il viso di un bambino per quello di suo figlio nell'auto di uno sconosciuto per scatenare in lei un vortice di dubbi ed emozioni incontrollate. E poco dopo, nella camera del suo bambino, sulla lavagna cominciano ad apparire due parole: "non morto". Tina ha motivo di credere che quell'incidente con gli scout non si sia mai verificato, e che forse suo figlio viene tenuto lontano da lei, prigioniero di un uomo in nero, e disperatamente bisognoso del suo aiuto. E così, verso un lento e inesorabile destino, il dolore e il dubbio genereranno in lei un'ossessione da cui le sarà impossibile sottrarsi: il bisogno di rivedere suo figlio a costo di sprofondare nell'abisso.

After the media caught hold of the presumed origins of the COVID-19 virus, out came the conspiracy theorists with their tinfoil hats.

If the kid in this book can crash helicopters and make guns not work with his mind, I submit he could escape from his captors without his mom's help. Also, he could write something less cryptic than just "not dead" on the chalkboard of his room.
26/80, 4 stars **** Very dated and a lot of fuss about nothing! But it’s Dean Koontz, hence the 4th star - I grew up with his books and, in fact, they’re still propping up my bookshelves all these years later 😀 He’s in the top 5 scary writer genre for me 😉
