The Pendleton stands on the summit of Shadow Hill at the highest point of an old heartland city, a Gilded Age palace built in the late 1800s as a tycoon’s dream home. Almost from the beginning, its grandeur has been scarred by episodes of madness, suicide, mass murder, and whispers of things far worse. But since its rechristening in the 1970s as a luxury apartment building, the Pendleton has been at peace. For its fortunate residents—a successful songwriter and her young son, a disgraced ex-senator, a widowed attorney, and a driven money manager among them—the Pendleton’s magnificent quarters are a sanctuary, its dark past all but forgotten.

But now inexplicable shadows caper across walls, security cameras relay impossible images, phantom voices mutter in strange tongues, not-quite-human figures lurk in the basement, elevators plunge into unknown depths. With each passing hour, a terrifying certainty grows: Whatever drove the Pendleton’s past occupants to their unspeakable fates is at work again. Soon, all those within its boundaries will be engulfed by a deadly tide from which few have escaped.

Dean Koontz transcends all expectations as he takes listeners on a gripping journey to a place where nightmare visions become real—and where a group of singular individuals hold the key to humanity’s destiny. Welcome to 77 Shadow Street.

Praise for the narration of 77 Shadow Street by Dean Koontz, performed by Peter Berkrot:

“Narrator Peter Berkrot opens the creaking door and invites listeners inside with a gentle, unassuming voice. Ignore that dark thing you saw out of the corner of your eye—it’s just a trick of the light. Berkrot performs with skill and assurance as strange voices, eerie sights, and inexplicable things take over the posh mansion.” —© AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Stacy McKitrick | 2/19/2014

    " I don't know if it's me or him, but this took me a long time (for me) to read. I enjoyed the story, but could easily put it down (there was certainly enough stopping points to do that). I guess I just enjoy the romances more, now, so maybe it IS me! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kimberly Kasper | 2/15/2014

    " I agree with Allen ... Koontz had me drawn in then WHAM it ended. I give it a 4 still because the story kept me engaged. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynda | 2/8/2014

    " a little disappointing "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rose75 | 2/8/2014

    " I like Dean Koontz; however, this book annoyed me and I think the title is misleading. I still had to read to the end to see what happened, but it bored me. Except how the characters figured out a way to blame one person for all of the death around them and it made sense. The idea was interesting but I thought this would have been a great book for a series so that there was a bit more history prior to this installment. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sarah Mac | 2/6/2014

    " This was okay, but too many characters and I wasn't expecting it to be the kind of supernatural that it was. Not my kind of book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Alejandro Ortega | 2/2/2014

    " A really good book that kept you guessin guntil the end to know what happens. Unexpected and a delight. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Fay | 1/17/2014

    " Awesome. Would make a great thriller movie! Couldn't put it down. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 A.I. Lee | 1/11/2014

    " Good book, the suspense ascends the moment you read the first chapter. He had a way for drawing you in at the very beginning. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 yvonne king | 1/11/2014

    " People the older I get the scarier I am! Remind you: It's just a book... "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynne | 1/10/2014

    " GREAT BOOK IF YOU ARE A KOONTZ FAN LIKE ME. ONLY PROBLEM WAS SO MANY CHARACTERS. I HAD TO KEEP GOING BACK TO CHECK. OTHERWISE GREAT. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kay | 12/24/2013

    " Wow! If I didn't know better I would have thought it was an earlier Stephen King book. Koontz has written a horror book that you can visualize just too well. If I was prone to nightmares, this book would have done it~!!! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Vicki G | 12/23/2013

    " A page-turner all the way through. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Rick Bostian | 12/2/2013

    " I'm a Koontz fan, but this one has too many characters for me to follow ... after getting halfway through the book and not really enjoying it, I give up. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Rebecca | 10/8/2013

    " Interesting story with twists. Agree with other reviews concerning the wordiness, but otherwise I thought it was good, suspenseful read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Sue Briner-cerf | 10/3/2013

    " Still reading it. Really not sure if it is worth it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Liisaan | 12/11/2012

    " I would really give this book 3 1/2 stars if I could. It was a good story, but scary! There were also quite a few characters to keep track of, which I normally don't mind, but I found some of them lacking in development. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Elizabeth Nesbit-comer | 10/9/2012

    " The cover of this book is pretty ...... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Gayle Solomon | 8/24/2012

    " From the first few chapters I found I couldn't put the book down. Every chance I got I was reading because I just had to find out what would happen. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Julie Jeary | 7/8/2012

    " From the beginning the book hooked me. I just love the creepiness. "
