** spoiler alert ** The plot is given like this: A very rich man suddenly finds he needs a heart transplant after developing severe cardiomyopathy. After the successful transplant, a woman begins to stalk him claiming his heart is hers and she wants it back. The reality is this: He doesn't even get the transplant until halfway through the book. Up until then, he develops severe paranoia and starts having strange and disturbing dreams. Much of this could actually be reasonably explained by the medical issue he faced, but of course, this being a Dean Koontz novel, that isn't the actual reason. The protagonist quickly and somewhat inexplicably rejects that the stalker is a ghost as the plot summary and knowledge of the author's past works would imply, and almost immediately he pinpoints the correct human suspect with almost nothing to base this on. So the actual "mystery" turns out to have a deeper spriritual meaning behind it - a meaning which I found interesting, but the journey to get there and the fact that this particular character was able to get there at all, was completely implausible. The bottom line is that even for Dean Koontz, this was an odd book. It reminded me why I don't bother to read everything he writes.
