darkly intriguing short story first published as an e-book original, was
written as prelude to Innocence, Dean
Koontz’s novel of mystery, suspense, and strange wonder.
“The world is a
machine that produces endless surprises and mysteries layered on mysteries.”
Addison Goodheart is a mystery even to himself. He was born
in an isolated home surrounded by a deep forest, never known to his father,
kept secret from everyone but his mother, who barely accepts him. She is
haunted by private demons and keeps many secrets—none of which she dreads more
than the young son who adores her. Only in the woods, among the wildlife, is Addison truly
welcome. Only there can he be at peace. Until the day he first knows terror,
the day when his life changes radically and forever.
