Description

BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Dean Koontz's The City.

From the #1 New York Times bestselling master of suspense comes a riveting thriller that probes the deepest terrors of the human psyche—and the ineffable mystery of what truly makes us who we are. Here a brilliant young man finds himself fighting for his very existence in a battle that starts with the most frightening words of all…

At thirty-four, Internet entrepreneur Ryan Perry seemed to have the world in his pocket—until the first troubling symptoms appeared out of nowhere. Within days, he’s diagnosed with incurable cardiomyopathy and finds himself on the waiting list for a heart transplant; it’s his only hope, and it’s dwindling fast. Ryan is about to lose it all…his health, his girlfriend Samantha, and his life.

One year later, Ryan has never felt better. Business is good and he hopes to renew his relationship with Samantha. Then the unmarked gifts begin to appear—a box of Valentine candy hearts, a heart pendant. Most disturbing of all, a graphic heart surgery video and the chilling message: Your heart belongs to me.

In a heartbeat, the medical miracle that gave Ryan a second chance at life is about to become a curse worse than death. For Ryan is being stalked by a mysterious woman who feels entitled to everything he has. She’s the spitting image of the twenty-six-year-old donor of the heart beating steadily in Ryan’s own chest.

And she’s come to take it back.


Publishers Weekly Review

Oct 27, 2008 – After the sophistication and ingenuity of such recent Hitchcockian thrillers as The Husband and The Good Guy, bestseller Koontz stumbles in this pallid effort. Ryan Kelly, a 34-year-old Internet entrepreneur, has it all, including an attractive journalist girlfriend he wants to marry, Samantha Reach, and a house in a gated community in Newport Coast, Calif. Harsh reality intrudes when he learns he has a serious heart defect and must get a transplant. Fortunately, a compatible donor turns up in time, but then someone launches a reign of psychological terror that leaves Ryan suspicious of Samantha and his longtime servants. The ultimate plot payoff is unworthy of this gifted author, as are patches of ponderous prose (“With the moon still tethered to the eastern horizon but straining higher, with the giant pepper tree occluding most of the eternally receding stars, the time to talk of death had come”). Koontz fans can only hope for a return to form next time.

Favorite Book by Koontz

A lot of big time Dean Koontz fans are not a huge fan if this book. It jumps from a romance to a thriller to more romance back to a thriller and a pinch of a supernatural element.

I read this book about a year ago, and I'm so excited they finally released this on the iBook store. It took a little bit of time, but it was added.

If you aren't familiar with Koontz, I would definitely recommend this book. Easily. It is probably in my top 10 favorite books of all time. It kept me hooked from beginning to end, and I was not disappointed. It doesn't get extremely thrilling till about halfway through the novel, but it's definitely worth reading the first half and reaching the middle when it gets really intense is more than satisfying.

If you are familiar with his work, give it a shot. You may like it, you may not. I could not put this down and it made me more of a Koontz fan than ever.
