Martie Rhodes is a successful young computer games designer with a loving husband, Dusty, and a seemingly normal life. Her best friend, Susan, however, suffers from agoraphobia, or fear of open spaces. Suddenly, Martie develops her own crippling fear – of herself. At the same time, Dusty's brother Skeet loses his rationality. It becomes clear that these are more than coincidences. Dusty begins to investigate the background of the therapist only to find, as he comes closer to the truth, that he is afflicted with a condition even more bizarre and terrifying than Martie's. Though not a continuation of the MOONLIGHT BAY series, no fan of psychological suspense will want to miss this extraordinary novel of the human mind's capacity to torment – and destroy.
