There are no rules in the dark, no place to feel safe, no escape from the shadows. But to save the day, you must...Seize the Night.

At no time does Moonlight Bay look more beautiful than at night. Yet it is precisely then that the secluded little town reveals its menace. Now children are disappearing. From their homes. From the streets. And there's nothing their families can do about it. Because in Moonlight Bay, the police work their hardest to conceal crimes and silence victims. No matter what happens in the night, their job is to ensure that nothing disturbs the peace and quiet of Moonlight Bay....

Christopher Snow isn't afraid of the dark. Forced to live in the shadows because of a rare genetic disorder, he knows the night world better than anyone. He believes the lost children are still alive and that their disappearance is connected to the town's most carefully kept, most ominous secret—a secret only he can uncover, a secret that will force him to confront an adversary at one with the most dangerous darkness of all. The darkness inside the human heart.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Dean Koontz finally got me…A rock-’em, sock-’em, knock-your-socks-off thriller that’s not just a page turner but a page burner.”

    New York Post

  • His masterwork. Publishers Weekly
  • Dean Koontz finally got me....A rock-'em, sock-'em, knock-your-socks-off thriller that's not just a page turner, but a page burner. New York Post
  • “No bestselling suspense novelist creates magnetic characters as consistently as Koontz does…In this [second novel] of a trilogy, the wonderfully delineated loyalties among these characters and others will win readers’ hearts as Koontz plunges his cast into terror. Koontz moves the trilogy’s overarching plot in a wholly unexpected direction…This novel stands as vintage Koontz, a rousing crowd-pleaser that recapitulates some of his recurrent themes—the pain of the outsider; the power of love; the threat of scientism—while sturdily continuing a trilogy that’s shaping up as his masterwork.”

    Publishers Weekly

  • “Koontz successfully blends his special brand of suspense from generous measures of mystery, horror, SF, and the techno-thriller genre. But his greatest triumph in this series is the creation of Christopher Snow, a thought-provoking narrator with a facility for surfer-lingo and dark humor who, despite his extreme situation, is an undeniably believable character.”

    Library Journal

  • “[A] tour de force…With headlong glee, Koontz again unveils encyclopedic intelligence about how things work in the physical world and how to bolt sentences into the moonlight.”

    Kirkus Reviews

  • A New York Times Bestseller

Listener Opinions

    " Part of my favorite series. Christopher Snow is cool. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Lynn Denise Langenstein | 2/12/2014

    " Kind of dark. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Marilyn | 2/10/2014

    " This setting could make a stellar video game. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Steve | 2/10/2014

    " Interesting concept though it took a while to develop. I enjoyed the main characters, especially the relationships between the "brothers". It also gets a bit goofy at times. Of course it's required to suspend disbelief for a while but there were points that drew me out of the story as I scoffed outloud. Still an enjoyable read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sandra Knapp | 2/5/2014

    " I was very disappointed this time. The story was different, but I expect that from Dean Koontz. And some of the characters were very interesting, but just not quite enough. And the story-line really left me wanting. I just feel that he could have done better. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sharon | 2/2/2014

    " I was pleased to find this book checked in! Looks like I'll be up late tonight--keeping Chris company :) "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bojana Rimanić | 2/1/2014

    " Good, but so typical. You just know what will happen through the whole book. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Jake | 1/20/2014

    " It was as intriguing all the way through as the first Moonlight Bay book was. I love how Chris, Sasha, and his surfer buddy have all the surfer lingo and witty banter. The book is good and kind of tells you what happened at the army base but not really. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Bob | 1/15/2014

    " Just okay. Not as good as "Fear Nothing". "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Paula | 1/9/2014

    " Sequel to Fear Nothing - and is so damn good! Excellent on its own, too - though it is a kick ass sequel! Christopher Snow is back with his usual gang and his trusty side-kick Orson, who I love so much. Unusual adventure and offers more insight into 'Becoming'. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Barb | 1/3/2014

    " I'm almost ready to ditch this book. It is bogged down with adjectives. Much to much description of people, places, feelings, etc. The story gets lost. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Stacie | 12/27/2013

    " I like Dean Koontz, this was a good read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Cheryl Marren | 12/20/2013

    " I really did love this - the imagination that went into its creation, clearly the product of a warped and outlandish mind (I like that) - the pace and suspense, the setting and the characters all made for an amazing read. I could not put this down. I reckon I would read it again. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 12/19/2013

    " Not quite as good as the first book, but still pretty thrilling. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Amy Stergar | 8/26/2012

    " First horror book I ever read. And probably made me think twice about reading a horror book again, seeing as I was scared to death while reading it and for a few weeks after. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Brooke | 6/25/2012

    " This book is the sequel to Fear Nothing. Both books are very good and suspenseful. I really like the main character Chris Snow he is a very interesting character. I enjoyed this book very much. "
