About this item

He lives in solitude beneath the city, an exile from society, which will destroy him if he is ever seen.

She dwells in seclusion, a fugitive from enemies who will do her harm if she is ever found.

But the bond between them runs deeper than the tragedies that have scarred their lives. Something more than chance--and nothing less than destiny--has brought them together in a world whose hour of reckoning is fast approaching.

In Innocence, #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz blends mystery, suspense, and acute insight into the human soul in a masterfully told tale that will resonate with readers forever.


"A rarity among bestselling writers, Koontz continues to pursue new ways of telling stories, never content with repeating himself".--Chicago Sun-Times

"Tumbling, hallucinogenic prose. 'Serious' writers... might do well to examine his technique".-- The New York Times Book Review

"[Koontz] has always had near-Dickensian powers of description, and an ability to yank us from one page to the next that few novelists can match".--Los Angeles Times

"Koontz is a superb plotter and wordsmith. He chronicles the hopes and fears of our time in broad strokes and fine detail, using popular fiction to explore the human condition".--USA Today

"Characters and the search for meaning, exquisitely crafted, are the soul of [Koontz's] work... One of the master storytellers of this or any age".--The Tampa Tribune

"A literary juggler".-- The Times (London)

Good, evil and man's use of free will--

Customer review by RSheep

5.0 stars by RSheep

This is simply a masterpiece of suspenseful literature. Koontz has outdone himself in this seemingly allegorical story of good and evil, and the free will of mankind to better his world or to destroy it with misused power and greed. Addison Goodheart is a 26 year old man who has lived all of his life in the darkness of the night and in the underground sewers and tunnels. When he does go out, he covers everything but his eyes least anyone see him and become so horrified that they would try to murder him. Gwyneth is a young woman with a social phobia, causing her to avoid any physical touch at all. They meet one night in the library and this amazing story continues. Koontz deftly goes back and forth in time building suspense while telling this present day story. Sometimes this can be confusing from other authors, but it was a must in developing this story. Koontz language was beautiful, describing snowfall in ways I've never heard before. This is perhaps one of Koontz's very best stories yet. A must read for his fans and for anyone seeking a new favorite author!
