When the girl from nowhere appeared, things started to go wrong…

The Mask is another spine-chilling tale from the bestselling master of suspense Dean Koontz. Perfect for fans of Stephen King and Richard Laymon.

‘Koontz hones his fearful yarns to a gleaming edge’ – People

Who was the girl behind the mask…?

She had appeared out of nowhere… in the middle of traffic, on a busy day, in front of Carol’s car. A teenager with no past, no family – and no memories. Carol and Paul were instantly drawn to her, this girl they named Jane – she was the daughter they never had. It was almost too good to be true.

Then the hauntings began – ghastly sounds in the dark of night; a bloody face in the mirror; a dim but persistent sense of fear… and the déjà vu. Where had Jane come from? Was she just an orphan in need of love? Or was she hiding a more sinister purpose?

What readers are saying about The Mask:

‘It’s a spooky story, intriguing and unnerving, character-driven as always and unfurling a mystery that threatens to engulf every character’

‘This book had me captured instantly from the beginning’

‘Classic Koontz, a superb read

Lyrical writing and compelling characters... Koontz stands alone
Associated Press
[Koontz] has always had near-Dickensian powers of description, and an ability to yank us from one page to the next that few novelists can match
Los Angeles Times
Perhaps more than any other author, Koontz writes fiction perfectly suited to the mood of America... novels that acknowledge the reality and tenacity of evil but also the power of good... [and that] entertain vastly as they uplift
