An ordinary parking lot in southern California. Christine Scavello and her six-year-old son are accosted by a strange old woman. “I know who you are,” she snaps at the boy. “I know what you are.” A scream, a threat—and then a grotesque act of violence. Suddenly Christine’s pride and joy, her only son, is targeted by a group of religious fanatics. They’ve branded him the Antichrist. They want to kill him. And they are everywhere…

Includes an afterword by the author

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 01, 1988 – Previously issued as a paperback original under the pseudonym Leigh Nichols, this is one of Koontz's better thrillers. Single parent Christine Scavello and her young son Joey find themselves confronted by a madwoman, Grace Spivey, who fancies she discerns the Antichrist in Joey's cherubic visage. Spivey is the charismatic leader of a religious cult whose fanatic members do her every bidding, including murdering the little boy, and everyone who stands in their way. After the police fail to provide adequate protection, Christine turns to private detective Charlie Harrison, whose business and home are soon firebombed by the cultists, and two of his men murdered, even as he finds that he is falling in love with Christine. The narrative moves along briskly until the last third, at which point a frantic chase sequence goes on too long. Nevertheless, this is a better than average adventure with supernatural overtones. The possibility of Joey's actually being the Antichrist is a deftly handled (and unresolved) tease.

Customer Reviews

Good read.

Read this book before. Good read. Dean Koontz writes pretty good horror. I like him better than Stephen King because for me King's endings are too weird. Of course, you are letting in some air of weirdness with horror genre, but Koontz manages to make his endings plausible.

A Oldie but goodie

This book came out in 1990 , under Liegh Nichols .
I do wish IBooks would let you know it was first released in 1990
still a good read 21 years later =) . Koontz At his best .


One of Koontz's scariest! Loved it!
