In Moonlight Bay, California, children are disappearing. The police cannot be trusted to solve their mystery, because in Moonlight Bay the purpose of the police is often to conceal the crime.
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, the protagonist of Fear Nothing, returns and is on the trail of missing children in Koontz's newest thriller. Snow believes the children are still alive and that their disappearances have something to do with clandestine scientific experiments at a nearby abandoned military base.
In Moonlight Bay, California, children are disappearing. The police cannot be trusted to solve their mystery, because in Moonlight Bay the purpose of the police is often to conceal the crime. Christopher Snow, whose rare genetic disorder -- xeroderma pigmentosum, XP -- leaves him dangerously vulnerable to light, sets out to find the missing son of a former sweetheart and then the other lost children. The disappearances have something to do with clandestine scientific experiments at a nearby abandoned military base, Fort Wyvern. Chris challenges those who would conceal even the most heinous crimes in order to keep the secrets of Fort Wyvern, and his genetic handicap becomes his greatest advantage: Forced to live a life in shadows, Chris knows the night world better than anyone -- better even than his adversaries.
My name is Christopher Snow. The following account is an installment in my personal journal. If you are reading it, I am probably dead. If I am not dead, then because of the reportage herein, I am now--or soon will be--one of the most famous people on the planet. If no one ever reads this, it will be because the world as we know it has ceased to exist and human civilization is gone forever. I am no more vain than the average person, and instead of universal recognition, I prefer the peace of anonymity. Nevertheless, if the choice is between Armageddon and fame, I'd prefer to be famous.
Elsewhere, night falls, but in Moonlight Bay it steals upon us with barely a whisper, like a gentle dark-sapphire surf licking a beach. At dawn, when the night retreats across the pacific toward distant Asia, it is reluctant to go, leaving deep black pools in alleyways, under parked cars, in culverts, and beneath the leafy canopies of ancient oaks.
According to Tibetan...
If you liked Seize The Night, try these:
First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered.
A brilliant thriller that pits forensic criminologist Lincoln Rhyme and his partner, Amelia Sachs, against an unstoppable killer with one final, horrific trick up his sleeve.
