1981 DEAN KOONTZ THRILLER ‘THE EYES OF DARKNESS’ ACCURATELY PREDICTED CHINESE CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK EVEN NAMED A LAB IN WUHAN AS STARTING POINT

In the novel, the coronavirus is called the “perfect weapon” because it only affects humans. It also cannot survive outside the human body for more than a minute and does not require an expensive decontamination process once it spreads through a population and those who contract it. The coincidence between the book’s virus and the actual coronavirus outbreak is uncanny. Currently, the coronavirus which originated in Wuhan, China is causing panic throughout the world. On Thursday, officials from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) confirmed that an American evacuee from Wuhan who is currently in Texas was diagnosed with the virus, making it the 15th case in the United States.

A mother’s greatest wish—or worst nightmare—comes true in this chilling novel by #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz.

 

     Tina Evans has spent a year suffering from incredible heartache since her son Danny’s tragic death. But now, with her Vegas show about to premiere, Tina can think of no better time for a fresh start. Maybe she can finally move on and put her grief behind her.

Only there is a message for Tina, scrawled on the chalkboard in Danny’s room: NOT DEAD. Two words that send her on a terrifying journey from the bright lights of Las Vegas to the cold shadows of the High Sierras, where she uncovers a terrible secret…
