For author Martin Stillwater, life couldn't be more perfect. He and Paige are happy together; their two daughters, Emily and Charlotte, are intelligent and healthy; and his novels are achieving long-hoped-for levels of success. So why does he feel such dread, experience sudden blackouts? The killer doesn't know his own name, only the name he uses. He has no family, no friends, no home. He cannot recall who gives him his assignments, and he doesn't know why his targets must die. Now, however, he senses that in a town he can't yet envision, a life awaits him, a place to call home, with family and friends. Charlotte knows something is wrong: the man moves and sounds like Daddy, but he doesn't smile as quickly or as often as usual. And when he does smile, he seems to be pretending. Daddy isn't Daddy.

Review:

Martin Stillwater is a novelist with a wife and children he adores -- and an imagination he can't control. One rainy afternoon, a stranger breaks into Martin's house and accuses him of stealing his family, his name, and his life. Martin has no choice but to take his family and flee, even as he questions his own sanity. But wherever they go, the stranger is right behind them.

From the Back Cover:

Happily married with two adorable children and a successful mystery writing career, Marty Stillwater considers himself a lucky man. But his comfortable cocoon is shattered when a stranger breaks into his house one rainy afternoon announcing: 'You stole my wife, my life, and my children. I want them back.' Claiming to be the real Martin Stillwater, the madman wages a terrifying campaign to eliminate Marty and recapture his family and life he believes to be his. Even the police are hard-pressed to believe the Stillwaters' harrowing account of what's happening to them, and the family is ultimately left on its own to deal with the menace in Koontz's most horrifying tale of suspense to date.
