Jason Evans has a perfect life—until he starts receiving messages that claim he’s dead—in this haunting mystery from the bestselling Dutch author of Zone.
Despite his fear of fire, life has been smooth sailing for Jason Evans. He has a loving wife, Kayla, a good job, and plenty of friends. There’s nothing standing in the way of his happiness, until an unknown enemy starts sending him strange photographs. The chilling images of a graveyard all have ominous and perplexing messages on the back: “You are dead. You think you’re alive, but you don’t exist.”
Jason’s attempt to find out who’s behind the disturbing missives leads him down an increasingly dark and dangerous path—one that makes him realize his life isn’t as picture-perfect as he thinks. Tense and psychologically gripping, Pyrophobia is a horror story that takes one man into the darkest corners of his own mind . . .
Fire-fearing Jason Evans, the hero of this uneven crime thriller from bestselling Dutch author Lance (Dark Memory), seems to have it all: a good job as an art director at a Los Angeles ad agency, a nice home, a lush wife named Kayla, and a set of troubled coworkers thrown in for contrast. But when eerie graveyard photos start arriving anonymously claiming that Jason is dead, he undertakes a predictable quest for his real identity, first into the wilds of hypnotic regression therapy and then on a 300-mile jaunt with Kayla into the Mojave Desert. Lance strains to capture California noir, but by the time Jason's psychic knots are unraveled and his tormentors unmasked, this stale kindling has only smoldered a little, and never really produced more than feeble, acrid smoke.
