Product description

Amazon Review

Horrormeister Koontz looks heavenward for inspiration in his newest suspense thriller, From the Corner of His Eye, which is chock-full of signs, portents, angels and one somewhat second-rate devil, a murky and under characterised guy named Junior Cain who throws his beloved wife off a fire tower on an Oregon mountain and spends the rest of the novel waiting for the retribution that will surely come. But not before a series of tragedies ensues that convince Junior that someone or something named Bartholomew is out to exact vengeance for that crime and the series of other murders that follow.

Bartholomew's own troubles begin with his birth, which transpires moments after his father is killed in a traffic accident as he is taking his wife to the hospital, and continue with the loss of his eyes at the tender age of three. Young Bartholomew has visionary gifts, though to his mother, a nice lady who's renowned for her pie-making abilities as well as her sweetly innocent nature, he's just a particularly smart kid who can read and write before his second birthday. Eventually, Bartholomew regains his sight, Junior Cain gets his comeuppance and fate conspires to bring love into the Pie Lady's life, reward the faithful and put a happy ending on this genre-bending tale. Koontz will no doubt rocket right to the top of the bestseller list with this inventive, if somewhat slower-paced, read. --Jane Adams, Amazon.com


'A mammoth new thriller' Mirror

'Keep[s] you turning pages well into the night' Belfast Telegraph

'A breathtaking thriller pumping with suspense' Western Mail

'Powerful emotion tinged with spiritual wonder. That emotion, which rocks the characters and will shake readers, marks this as one of Koontz's most effective novels - and he's written a lot of them' Publishers Weekly

'This is not merely a novel of suspense; it is also a story of belief and reflection, of choices and thebeauty that can blossom from doing what is right, rather than what is easy. While dazzling the reader with magnificent turns of phrase that will evoke simultaneous admiration and envy, [Koontz] alternates the mood between tenderness and suspense. A novel that is absolutely perfect from opening word to closing sentence' Bookreporter.com

'Koontz tries to create serious literature, and he largely succeeds in FROM THE CORNER OF HIS EYE' USA Today

'Uplifting and optimistic. There's nothing sentimental...in this book, though a complex philosophical thesis is at its heart. A knuckle-biter from start to finish' Toronto Star

'FROM THE CORNER OF HIS EYE may be Koontz's crowning achievement in a lengthy career already filled with triumphs. In this first-rate thriller, non-stop action keeps one turning the pages in spite of the book's length' Minneapolis Star Tribune

'Readers in search of a pull-out-the-stops, multigenre thriller need look no further than FROM THE CORNER OF HIS EYE' Denver Post

'A fascinating theme...peopled with interesting characters, a fast-paced plot, and some imaginative theories about the nature of science and faith. Koontz has written another winner' Toronto Sun

'He succeeds in creating and fleshing out a cast of remarkable and unique characters. Koontz builds mansions of place and time. FROM THE CORNER OF HIS EYE is a suspenseful, entertaining and thought-provoking novel, examining the depth of the human spirit, our capacity for good and evil...and the consequences of even the simplest deed' Harrisburg Patriot-News

'An ambitious exploration of the intricacies of human relationships' Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel

'Highly entertaining' Chicago Tribune

'Koontz connects these [characters'] stories with his usual ingenuity. He has always had near-Dickensian powers of description, and an ability to yank us from one page to the next that few novelists can match' Los Angeles Times

'Though over 600 pages, the book never seems long. The characters are vivid and emotionally exciting, creating a fast and compelling read. Highly recommended' Library Journal

'A psychologically complex suspenser' New York Daily News

'Fans of Dean Koontz are in for another thrilling treat. Once again we [are] mesmerized by his gift for...colorful prose' Oakland Press

'Koontz is famous for the way he falls in love with his characters. They're so richly and compellingly drawn, you can practically hear them breathing from the page. FROM THE CORNER OF HIS EYE is chuckfull of hope an wonderment, good and evil, familial adoration, and characters you'll wish lived next door. You'll never want to leave the worlds Koontz draws you into. Settle in for one remarkable read of awesome possibilities' Lexington Herald-Ledger

'Full of more surprises than the average Koontz offering - and that is saying much. His opening is like a man announcing he will juggle bowling balls while frying eggs and piloting an air balloon. Preposterous - but Koontz proceeds to do it, and much more. Koontz does not bore' San Diego Union Tribune

'Exceptional writing and storytelling. Year after year, Koontz provides fresh ideas' San Antonio Express News

'A heart-pounding tale of Biblical proportions. [Koontz] proves once again that he still has the power to scare the daylights out of us' Ottawa Citizen

'A wonderful read. The pacing is perfect, keeping the reader in exquisite tension. This is a deeply satisfying, rich novel. You may have nightmares about [the villain] but you'll love the other characters. Singularly and collectively, they are unforgettable. FROM THE CORNER OF HIS EYE is magic' New Orleans Times Picayune

'Delightful...fascinating and terrifying' Detroit News and Free Press

'Dean Koontz almost occupies a genre of his own. He is a master at building suspense and holding the reader spellbound' Richmond Times-Dispatch

'Vintage novel writing... The reader waits intensely for the final showdown' Calgary Sun

'Dean Koontz is not an author to be taken for granted. Each of his books stands alone; they do not fit a pattern. FROM THE CORNER OF HIS EYE is full of well-developed characters which is a trademark of Koontz's. Highly diverse characters...marvelous people' Fort Meyers Beach Observer

'Probably the most creative and most far-reaching book he has ever written. Riveting...well-written. This book says a great deal about why Koontz is on top of his field - he's very good' Deseret News

'An explosion of emotion and wonder. The tale is spun so masterfully that it is as gripping a novel as you'll find, and as thought-provoking' Baton Rouge Sunday Advocate

'A fascinating piece of work...stuffed to the gunwales with colorful characters and plot twists. It's virtually a Charles Dickens epic for the 21st century' Locus

'The book careers to a superb, tear-jerking conclusion' Shivers
