Description

His birth was marked by wonder and tragedy. He sees beauty and terror beyond our deepest dreams. His story will change the way you see the world. On the heels of his #1 bestseller False Memory, Dean Koontz brings together his most compelling themes and an unforgettable cast of characters to create what is perhaps the most thrilling and emotionally powerful work of his critically acclaimed career. Bartholomew Lampion is born on a day of tragedy and terror that will mark his family forever. All agree that his unusual eyes are the most beautiful they have ever seen. On this same day, a thousand miles away, a ruthless man learns that he has a mortal enemy named Bartholomew. He embarks on a relentless search to find this enemy, a search that will consume his life. And a girl is born from a brutal rape, her destiny mysteriously linked to Barty and the man who stalks him. At the age of three, Barty Lampion is blinded when surgeons remove his eyes to save him from a fast-spreading cancer. As he copes with his blindness and proves to be a prodigy, his mother counsels him that all things happen for a reason and that every person's life has an effect on every other person's, in often unknowable ways. At thirteen, Bartholomew regains his sight. How he regains it, why he regains it, and what happens as his amazing life unfolds and entwines with others results in a breathtaking journey of courage, heart-stopping suspense, and high adventure.

Review quote

"He [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" "Reader be warned: this is Koontz at his finest ... thrill-packed ... more than 600 pages of suspense." -- "The Oakland Press" (Mich.) "Though over 600 pages, the book never seems long. The characters are vivid and emotionally exciting, creating a fast and compelling read." " -- Library Journal" "The bestselling author elicits as much emotion as suspense in this spooky story about a boy who loses his eyesight." -- "People" "Dean Koontz is not just a master of our darkest dreams, but also a literary juggler." -- "The Times "(London) "From the Hardcover edition."show more
