In the late summer of a long-ago year, a killer arrived in a small city. His name was Alton Turner Blackwood, and in the space of a few months he brutally murdered four families. His savage spree ended only when he himself was killed by the last survivor of the last family, a fourteen-year-old boy. Half a continent away and two decades later, someone is murdering families again, re-creating in detail Blackwood’s crimes. Homicide detective John Calvino is certain that his own family — his wife and three children — will be targets in the fourth crime, just as his parents and sisters were victims on that distant night when he was fourteen and killed their slayer. As a detective, John is a man of reason who deals in cold facts. But an extraordinary experience convinces him that sometimes death is not a one-way journey, that sometimes the dead return. Here is a ghost story like no other you have read. In the Calvinos, Dean Koontz brings to life a family that might be your own, in a war for their survival against an adversary more malevolent than any he has yet created, with their own home the battleground. Of all his acclaimed novels, none exceeds What the Night Knows in power, in chilling suspense, and in sheer mesmerizing storytelling. “Dean Koontz . . . has the power to scare the daylights out of us.” —People “Koontz seems to know us, our deepest foibles and fears.” —USA Today “Koontz writes first-rate suspense, scary and stylish.” —Los Angeles Times “A master at spinning dark tales . . . Koontz knows how to dial up the terror.” —Associated Press Download and start listening now!

    " Koontz at his best! Sometimes he gets too bogged down but not in this one. I couldn't put it down. "

    " Not the best Dean Koontz book, but definitely better than the last one. The character development was lacking although it was a bit creepy. "

    " Took me ages to finish this book, but somehow it kept me slugging on. Lots of filler to wade through to get to the meat of the story. No real surprises in the story line...typical Koontz. "

    " This book was one of my favorites that I have read in a long time. It is more of a dark book talking about murders, demons, and the like, so this is not one I'd recommend to younger children. Readers into more of a dark spiritual type of book would enjoy this book. Some of the better things i found in the book was the imagery in the book, I've never jumped from reading a book before this one, but other aspects of the book like the emotion from all of the character's point of view was one of my favorite things of it all. Overall this is a very well written book and has allowed me to get into the horror style of reading. "
