Laura Shane always knew something was odd about her. The night she was born, a freak lightning storm struck, the likes of which hadn't been seen in years. A mysterious blonde stranger saves her from the drunken doctor attempting to attend her delivery. Although her mother dies in childbirth, Laura learns to be content with her father, until the day that a junkie robs their convenience store and takes him from her forever. The day of his funeral, the blonde stranger appears again, which raises more questions than answers: Who is he? What does he want? Why does he keep appearing in Laura's life? Is he an angel? A supernatural villain? It's hard to say.

American author Dean Koontz was born in 1945 in Everett, Pennsylvania. A celebrated author of widely-varied suspense thrillers, he graduated from Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania and did a short stint as an English teacher before becoming a bestselling author. He wrote his first novel in his spare time and continued to write over a dozen sci-fi novels after its widely acclaimed success. Today, he lives in Orange County, California, with his Wife, Gerda.

Lightning is a thrilling mix of sci-fi and suspense, sure to please lovers of both genres. Both new and old fans alike will find things to enjoy in Koontz' 1988 classic, which has been critically acclaimed again and again over the years. It is highly recommended for the sci-fi fan and the literary critic alike.

A storm struck on the night Laura Shane was born, and there was a strangeness about the weather that people would remember for years. But even more mysterious was the blond-haired stranger who appeared out of nowhere – the man who saved Laura from a fatal delivery. Years later – another bolt of lightning – and the stranger returned, again to save Laura from tragedy. Was he the guardian angel he seemed? The devil in disguise? Or the master of a haunting destiny beyond time and space?
