Master of suspense Dean Koontz creates an undercurrent of terror in this story set deep in the dark and troubled town of Black River.

Burned-out Hollywood screenwriter Bo Aikens is fed up with life in Los Angeles. He heads out of the hustle and bustle of the big city and arrives in picturesque Black River in Northern California, seeking relaxation and artistic inspiration. In small, idyllic Black River, nearly everyone is happy, contented, and welcoming of strangers. But despite the beautiful setting, Bo begins to feel unsettled after several disturbing incidents. He discovers that all of his money has been transferred to a bank account in Black River, and a house has been purchased for him by someone on his instructions.

Troubled by various, peculiar twists of fate, Bo decides to leave Black River. As he becomes entangled in a nightmarish plot, preventing his return home, it suddenly seems clear to Bo that his perfect little hideaway captures more than just the imagination of its visitors.

Black River appeared in print in Mystery Scene Magazine #63 in 2000. Download and start listening now!

Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Murvin | 6/20/2012

    " Dare to read and discover the truth that has been hidden from the world by "euro-centric scholars". A giant of a man has written what could be the greatest books on our story. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steven | 6/24/2011

    " I'd like to give this one 3.5 stars. The characters are very well developed. The villain is really disgusting...but in a good way. But other than a few scenes, not much happens. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Ericka | 6/20/2011

    " Rather flowerly language for a thriller, but the plot still had me hanging on the edge of my seat. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Walter | 6/5/2011

    " This is my first Koontz disappointment! Way too much detail in too many areas. I've read several Koontz novels but this one was simply boring. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Mary | 5/11/2011

    " This would have been a three star book if the author hadn't bored me to death with his political beliefs. Political beliefs are great, I just don't want them inserted into a thriller where they bring the action to a screeching halt. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tracy | 5/6/2011

    " It is not one of my favorites but I did enjoy it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Brittney | 4/27/2011

    " It was very interesting I liked it. There were some inappropriate parts....and the ending was a little bit blah but other than that it was great! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Joseph | 4/24/2011

    " This is one of my favorite Dean Koontz thriller. Classic Dean Koontz. The story travels across the west with excitement and adventure at ever turn. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sara | 4/6/2011

    " Not one of Koontz's best, but still entertaining. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Melanie | 1/7/2011

    " I attempted to read this one more then once, couldn't do it, too boring. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Peregrine 12 | 12/16/2010

    " Suspenseful, definitely, and gruesome. I like a lot of Koontz's earlier stuff, but this wasn't really my thing. "
