Additional Information about Dark Rivers of the Heart by Dean Koontz (1994, Hardcover)
A Man and a Woman - she is a figure of mystery, he is a mystery even to himself - meet by chance in a Santa Monica bar. Suddenly - first separately, and then together - they are fleeing the long arm of a clandestine and increasingly powerful renegade government agency: the woman hunted for the information she possesses, the man mistaken as her comrade in a burgeoning resistance movement.
The architect of the chase is a man of uncommon madness and cruelty, ruthless, possibly psychotic, and equipped with a vast technological arsenal: untraceable access to the government's electronic information banks, its surveillance systems, weaponry, and materiel. He is the brazen face of an insidiously fascistic future. And he is virtually unstoppable.
Two secretive, lonely people desperately flee a clandestine, illegal agency with a hidden fascist agenda, pursued by a vicious, insidiously evil operative with full access to the vast resources of the government
