They watch you through mirrors...
"Your mother was twenty-seven when it came to her. Now you're twenty-seven, and it's come to you."
The skin of Alex's arms tingled with goose bumps. By her twenty-seventh birthday insanity had come to his mother...."
Turning twenty-seven may be terrifying for some, but for Alex, a struggling artist living in the mid-western United States, it is cataclysmic. Inheriting a huge expanse of land should have made him a rich and happy man; but something about this birthday, his name, and the beautiful woman whose life he just saved, has suddenly made him -- and everyone he loves -- into a target. A target for extreme and uncompromising violence...
Where do you turn when your own reflection spells doom?
In Alex, Terry Goodkind brings to life a modern hero in a whole new kind of high-octane thriller.
