"Golden’s chilling tale will have you shivering the next time you glance at your reflection. Is it really always you looking back?" - Washington Post
"Deeply disturbing and studded with ghastly imagery, this beautifully written narrative will inspire shudders with every turn of the page." - Publishers Weekly
"Dead Ringers rises above the standard horror-novel clichés with style...A supernatural horror novel that seems all too plausible thanks to its fast pace, adept characterization and fine sense of place." - Shelf Awareness
"Dead Ringers is a book with the momentum of a thriller, but it’s driven by character... [Golden] excels at character development and is one of the few writers working today who plays in the same league as Stephen King." - Slush Pile Heroes
"Reminiscent of Jack Finney's The Body Snatchers (without the aliens)...[Golden] delivers enough chills to satisfy." - Library Journal

In the busy city, Tess Devlin becomes angry when her ex-husband fails to recognize her. Frustrated, she attempts to call him, but she finds out that he's away with his new girlfriend. Who did Tess see?
Frank Lindbergh has had a rough time of it lately. He's turned to drinking to drown his sorrows, and he spends much of his time drinking and watching reruns on tv. One night, someone knocks on his door. Soon, Frank is accosted and locked in his basement by...his twin.
Tess Devlin has her own encounter with someone who shares her face. This person is successful, but she's not the real Tess.
An unspeakable evil has been set upon Tess, Frank, Tess' husband Nick, her best friend Lili, and Audrey, an occultist. A demon is threatening to emerge from a shroud of darkness, and the "Raggedy Man" is determined to drag Tess and the others into the clutches of the demon.
I found "Dead Ringers" to be a scary and exciting read. The characters are well-developed and believable, and the story builds in intensity throughout. The last chapter is especially chilling. I've read Christopher Golden's previous book "Snowblind", and I enjoyed "Dead Ringers" just as much. Be prepared to be scared.
The characters were well developed, the plot moved quickly and kept me turning pages and hating when I had to put the book down to do something else.
This story also takes an interesting twist on where the doppelgangers come from. I'm not going to spoil the twist, but it really freaked me out. This novel gave me nightmares!
Golden is a great writer and everything I’ve read of his has kept my skin crawling, but this one made my skin crawl the most. If you want a good book to read and give you the willies, pick this book up, now!
The book builds slow with questions with no answers at first, but once it gets going you are pulled for a wild terrifying ride. Mr. Golden created compelling characters that you feel for and care what happens to them.
I can’t recommend this enough. Even if you are not normally a fan of darker fiction it is worth your time. Someone compared this book favorably to Stephen King’s The Shining, and I agree this novel fits well on that shelf.
However, now I'm going to be paranoid whilst roaming around and looking for my doppelganger everywhere, who is clearly looking for me to trade places with. Yup, no sleep tonight.
Seriously, excellent book! And the ending gave me chills.
