More About the Author

I was born and raised in Pennsylvania where I graduated from Shippensburg State College (now Shippensburg University). When I was a senior in college, I won an Atlantic Monthly fiction competition and have been writing ever since. My first job after graduation was with the Appalachian Poverty Program, where I was expected to counsel and tutor underprivileged children on a one-to-one basis. During my first day on the job, I discovered that the previous occupier of my position had been beaten up by the very kids he had been trying to help and had landed in the hospital for several weeks. The following year was filled with challenge but also tension, and I was more highly motivated than ever to build a career as a writer. I wrote nights and weekends, which I continued to do after leaving the poverty program and going to work as an English teacher in a suburban school district outside Harrisburg. After a year and a half in that position, my wife, Gerda, made me an offer I couldn't refuse: "I'll support you for five years," she said, "and if you can't make it as a writer in that time, you'll never make it." By the end of those five years, Gerda had quit her job to run the business end of my writing career. Gerda and I live in southern California with their dog Anna, and the enduring spirit of their dog Trixie in southern California.

Dean Koontz is an international household name whose hugely entertaining parables for our times have been bestsellers in many countries, selling seventeen million copies each year.

WOW. Dean Koontz (when did he lose the 'R' in the middle of his name?) is on great form this time, and has delivered a fantastic novella. The characters are great, the story is intriguing, mysterious, scary even. The dark world Crispin and his siblings are thrown into is frightening, and his life since he escaped is difficult. I really felt for this little boy, completely alone and afraid, yet feisty enough to take on something much bigger and more evil than any of us realise. I hope Crispin will be in a whole series of books (like Odd Thomas), as I think there is so much more he could do. I just loved this book, and can't wait for 77 Shadow Street. I hope it will be as thrilling as the excerpt promises.

Crispin is twelve years old. He lives rough in the city, always hiding from those who are looking for him. When he was nine years old he ran away from his rich European step father, his treacherous mother, his home tutor, his Japanese Nanny, the opulence, wealth and danger of the mansion in which he lived and from the memories of what happened to his younger brother and sister. Crispin still has unfinished business at the mansion, business that he can only finish when the cards tell him to.

This is an absolutely superb novella length (just under 2000 Kindle locations) story that gripped me from the opening page. Brilliantly plotted with two interleaved threads, one telling the tale of Crispin's survival living rough in the city and the other of the reasons why he ran away from home, this story gets scarier, darker and more terrifying the more you read.

Overall: 5 stars! Although this is clearly a teaser for Koontz's latest full length novel 77 Shadow Street, this is a totally stand alone story that I thoroughly enjoyed. It is dark, scary, and full of hidden menace. Although years ago I read a few of Koontz's early works, I haven't read any of his recent stories. This story was so good though that I will be reading more of his work again soon!

Not sure about this mini novel. I'm afraid it did not capture me and I therefore ended reading it in small chunks. For this reason the suspense was lacking for me and I found the young child "Crispin" not very believable both in character and situation. I'm a Dean Koontz fan, however, this just wasn't for me.

I love Dean Koontz's work and so I am rarely disappointed; and this was no exception. Beautifully and poignantly written with an empathetic style and a deep insight into his characters, my only problem was that by the time I was hooked on the characters and developing story-line it was all over.

Another enjoyable novella from Dean Kootnz. Enjoyable read, much like most of Dean Kootnz books. Flows nicely for 77 Shadow Street (another good read!)

I have never read any Dean Koontz books before but this certainly won't be the last. I was looking for something short as a distraction and came across this novella.
An immediate empathy with the characters is created and you are drawn whole heartedly into the story.
With some novellas you are left with a feeling of a story cut short and hurriedly finished. Not so with book, when I reached the end I felt that all of the book was building up to this conclusion rather than a story looking for an end.
