The Face of Fear is a novel written by Dean Koontz under the name "K. R. Dwyer". It was first published in 1977.
He was unique - but not alone. He was one of the new men, self-styled supermen! With a grisly plan for tomorrow. The plan called for a climate of unparalleled chaos and fear. The savage murders in New York were designed to be imitated by madmen across the nation. When the time was ripe, they would strike - seize the power that was rightfully theirs. One man and one woman could stop it - or become victim 11 and victim 12.
