Jamie Angelo is part artist and part alchemist. His plastic surgery techniques are light-years beyond modern medicine. He can transform a haggard face into a masterpiece of ageless beauty. He is not God, but he is close.

To ambitious models like Jaishree Manglani, Jamie is the ultimate fantasy—a master illusionist who can turn her dream of eternal youth into reality … Until the truth about Jamie’s “art” and “science” is revealed, and a nightmare ensues. Because if there’s no such thing as perfect beauty, Manhattan’s king of beauty might just be the gatekeeper of something other than human.

    Dean Koontz

  • I've never read anything like BEAUTY before ... It's almost breathtakingly self-assured, and this confidence, which is a matter of an absolutely candid, knowing voice, takes us almost immediately into the novel's world ... When a writer's voice is as compelling as Brian D'Amato's, you have to follow him no matter where he's going...It's also satisfying, I mean really satisfying, to read a novel so bristling and humming with intelligence. Peter Straub

  • From its daringly abstract opening page, BEAUTY establishes a strikingly original mood and voice that never falters through the final sentence ... chapter by chapter there is a growing sense of dread that is absolutely irrestistible ... at the same time, BEAUTY is often darkly hilarious, as darly comic as any book I've ever read. The best first novel I've read in a decade. Dean Koontz
