I'm pretty sure this was one of his. I doubt it could have been published any later than early 2000s, and maybe quite a bit earlier. But, with his tendency to name books with random, cool-sounding titles that have no relation to the story, I can't for the life of me remember the name of it.

The gist of it was, the protagonist was a woman, and was attacked in her house by a creepy guy she knew from work. She managed to kill him, but then the body disappeared and he kept stalking her. I don't think there were any supernatural elements, just a straight-ahead suspense novel with a rather obvious solution (but an explanation that was worth the read).

Anyone? Bueller??? Bueller???

That's the one! Thank you, Champ. For some reason that was really irritating me!

The only Koontz novels I can keep straight just by the title are The Bad Place, and Lightning. Two really really good novels.

Well, I guess Odd Thomas, although I don't know which is which except the first one!
My pleasure I love looking up stuff like this. Like you pointed out, the titles don't represent the content.

Definitely Whispers but she met him at a wine tasting , I do believe.
