An original e-short story from #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz!

An original e-short story from #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz!

With this darkly intriguing original e-short story, #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz sets the stage for his masterly new novel of mystery, suspense, and strange wonder—Innocence.

“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 . . .

Addison’s story continues in Dean’s upcoming novel, Innocence, available in hardcover, ebook, and audio on 12/10!
