Summary

"Insanely evocative and extremely satisfying." — The Times (UK)

Joe Egan has spent his life on the run. When he was a child, he thought he saw the angel of death. Now every time someone close to him dies, a mysterious blonde woman appears and he's forced to retreat, abandoning jobs and relationships in a never-ending flight across a hallucinatory version of the United States. Is the woman real, a figment of his imagination, or a supernatural apparition — perhaps even the devil incarnate?
The Guardian praised Marc Behm as "a terrific novelist," adding that "Afraid to Death is a fascinating mirror image to The Eye of the Beholder." Behn's previous novel, also available from Dover Publications, spins a gripping tale of obsession and suspense in which a private investigator trails an enigmatic young woman. But this time the protagonist, a dissolute gambler, is being chased by a female character whose reoccurrences excite both fear and attraction.
