A heart-stopping work of horror and suspense from the author of THE BIRTHING HOUSE and THE PEOPLE NEXT DOOR.
Fleeing his gambling debtors through the winding canyons of central Idaho, Noel Shaker is engulfed in a rolling white field of ground lightning whose source is unknown but whose effects leave Noel altered by a horrifying new physical condition - a photosynthetic fading effect that renders the body (except when in direct, prolonged sunlight) ninety-nine percent invisible.
Depending on who carries it, the fading is a terrible curse, or a gift of awesome power. For Noel Shaker, it is the beginning of a roller-coaster ride to hell, as well as his last available road to redemption...
A gripping thriller that's just perfect for fans of Stephen King - Lancashire Evening Post
