Book Description From Cover:      
  I have been acquainted with the night.

Christopher Snow is athletic, handsome enough, intelligent, romantic, funny. But his whole life has been affected by xeroderma pigmentosum, a rare genetic disorder that means his skin and eyes cannot be exposed to sunlight. Like all Xpers, Chris lives at night - and has never ventured beyond his hometown of Moonlight bay, a place of picturesque beauty and haunting strangeness; he knows it as no one else can possibly know it, is intimate with its shadows and darkest hours. Despite the limitations imposed by nature, he has always been determined to lead the fullest life and, with the help of his family and friends, he has on the whole succeeded.

But for Chris - and all the inhabitants of Moonlight bay - a terrible change is about to happen; a change of potentially catastrophic proportions.

Startling, mysterious, moving, Fear Nothing is a compulsive masterpiece of tension from Dean Koontz, whose internationally bestselling novels have sold over 200 million copies worldwide and garnered extraordinary critical acclaim.
First Paragraph:        
  On the desk in my candlelit study, the telephone rang, and I knew that a terrible change was coming.

I am not psychic. I do not see signs and portents in the sky. To my eye, the lines in my palm reveal nothing about my future, and I don't have a Gypsy's ability to discern the patterns of fate in wet tea leaves.
