Darkness falls quickly when you're being stalked....but it is always dark when you are a stalker. In this compelling all-original anthology, twenty masters of suspense take you into the darkest depths of terror as they explore both sides of the human mind.

This anthology was all right - but no great stand-out gems here, I'm afraid.
I'd like to reiterate my opinion that Dean Koontz may be the most overrated author of all time, as said opinion has been strengthened by reading his "the rats of NIMH go EVIL!!!" story here....
Also have to mention that I think TWO stories about truckers getting killed off for revenge is one too many for one book...
The Rex Miller story is rather clever, but more a detective tale than horror.
