A heart-stopping, edge-of-your-seat thriller with a hot cast of stars, Phantoms is the from the ultimate master of suspense, Dean Koontz! Five lone survivors in a devastated town must face the unthinkable: a ferocious force of evil lying below the earth for centuries that has surfaced with the power to destroy every human being!
