really liked it

This was first published under the pen name Leigh Nichols, and I enjoyed the strong female lead character, and the empathy shown towards a grieving mother. At first it appears that Tina is experiencing a delayed emotional breakdown after her son was killed along with his scout troop in a bizarre accident that left no survivors and no bodies. When she becomes convinced her son is still alive and trying somehow to contact her, the only person to believe her is a man she's barely met. Luckily the guy is ex-services, and ideally placed to deal with the sinister men who are determined to kill her in order to keep quiet a very dark secret. In particular this book stands out in my mind as one of the first I'd come across in which a main character feels physically sick after killing (albeit justified). Much slimmer than the megatomes Koontz would later produce, the writing is 'tight' and the suspense gripping.
