Enter a world unlike any other. A world of the night. A world created brilliantly by master
suspense novelist Dean Koontz. The world where his blockbuster novels Fear
Nothing and Seize the Night are set. Welcome to Moonlight Bay, California, home
of Christopher Snow.
Forced to live in the shadows, Snow knows the night world better than the dark adversaries that stalk his quiet town. And along with his exceptional dog Orson, and his friends, Snow will challenge those who try to take advantage.
When you live in the darkness of Moonlight Bay as Christopher Snow does, and you are desperately trying to save the day, you abide by two guiding principles: fear nothing and seize the night!
Christopher Snow is different from all the other residents of Moonlight Bay.

While investigating the death of his mother who was a scientist, Chris Snow discovers she was engaged in secret experiments on a nearby military base, experiments which went wrong and which produced monsters. The next he knows, the monsters come visiting and they are not friendly.

I am an only son, an only child, and my mother passed away two years ago. Her death had been shock, but at least she had not been forced to endure a lingering illness.
Last night just before dawn, exhausted, I had returned home to sleep. But I had not slept much or well.
Now I leaned ...
