Book Review: False Memory by Dean Koontz


It’s a fear more paralyzing than falling. More terrifying than absolute darkness. More horrifying than anything you can imagine. It’s the one fear you cannot escape no matter where you run . . . no matter where you hide.

It’s the fear of yourself. It’s real. It can happen to you. And facing it can be deadly.

False Memory . . . Fear for your mind.


My Review

False Memory is a strange, thrilling, and pulse pounding roller coaster ride in true Koontz fashion. Each scene draws you in and holds you on the edge of your seat waiting to see what new twist is just around the bend.

Dusty and Martine Rhodes are a normal couple living a normal life, until Martine is struck by a rare and mysterious psychological condition called autophobia. Made all the stranger by the fact that her best friend, Susan, has been suffering from agoraphobia for the past several months. What are the odds of two friends being struck down by debilitating phobia within months of each other? Then Martine's brother-in-law attempts suicide and Dusty begins to find himself missing bits and pieces of time with no explanation as to what he was doing during them.

Coincidence? Strange cosmic forces at work? Or something worse? As Dusty and Martine try to unravel the mystery, they find themselves drawn ever deeper into a depraved game that can end in only one way. Death.

This suspenseful tale of depravity and desperation will chill you to the bone.
