The gift of sight came to Karen Thorndyke as the bequest of an unknown man. His cornea, willed to the Eye Bank, enabled the beautiful young artist to see and paint again. But with that bit of transparent tissue came an insight into horror. A vision of murder passed from his eye to hers -- and marked her for death! ///////////////////// Charlotte Paul (1916-1989) was the author of numerous popular novels, including the million-copy seller "Phoenix Island."

A thousand dots of silvery light floated above her in a glacial mist. Then the fragments of light slowly moved toward one another, relentless forming a gleaming shaft -- slender, pointed, coming ever closer. She must escape. She must run. But flight was impossible -- she was strapped down. As she strained against her bonds, they grew tighter, stronger. Suddenly the mist cleared, and the horror was poised above her, its deadly image now sharp in every detail. It was a hypodermic needle, its wicked point only inches above the body she knew was her own but had lost all power to move. Strong, blunt fingers gripped the needle, fingers of pale flesh for which there was no hand, no arm. The needle hovered, and then suddenly plunged toward her . . . "No!" The word burst from her, and she was suddenly wide awake. it was a nightmare . . . thank heaven! But as the days wore on, and the vision became a part of her life, day and night, night and day, Karen knew that this terrifying picture was no fantasy. Part of her "new" eye held . . . THE IMAGE.
