Dean Koontz's Your Heart Belongs to Me is, at heart, a story about paranoia. Or is it? No, it really is. Ryan Perry, a software mogul who has it all, begins to receive messages after his heart transplant from a mysterious stranger that closely resembles the heart donor. In a bizarre series of events Ryan comes close to losing everything he has, including the woman he loves. That's pretty much straight from the back of the book, and it's as misleading as the actual novel. Koontz's Your Heart Belongs to Me is a book that leaps from spiritual happenings to secret government organizations, but Koontz fails the reader by using a cheap storytelling gimmick that I'll try my best to not completely spoil. From official release/information:
Product Description: At thirty-four, Internet entrepreneur Ryan Perry seemed to have the world in his pocket—until the first troubling symptoms appeared out of nowhere. Within days, he's diagnosed with incurable cardiomyopathy and finds himself on the waiting list for a heart transplant; it's his only hope, and it's dwindling fast. Ryan is about to lose it all…his health, his girlfriend, Samantha, and his life.
