''Phantoms'' is a horror novel by American author Creator/DeanKoontz. It takes place in the small Californian mountain town of Snowfield, where doctor Jennifer Paige is taking her younger sister Lisa to live after their mother died of an embolism. It's a picturesque little place, but it doesn't take the sisters long to notice that something's missing--all the people, for starters. They find a few corpses, but most of the town's inhabitants seem to have vanished without a trace. Many of the few bodies they do find obviously died completely terrified, though just ''how'' they died isn't immediately evident.

* HormoneAddledTeenager: Lisa, at first. At the novel's opening, she and Jennifer are arguing about what kind of boys she's allowed to date, and Jennifer thinks that Lisa's at "that age where most girls were obsessively concerned about boys, boys above all else." This falls by the wayside once they realize something's very wrong in town. (In the movie, she's been sent to live with Jennifer specifically to get her away from a loser boyfriend.)
