Description

There are no rules in the dark, no place to feel safe, no escape from the shadows. But to save the day, you must...Seize the Night. At no time does Moonlight Bay look more beautiful than at night. Yet it is precisely then that the secluded little town reveals its menace. Now children are disappearing. From their homes. From the streets. And there's nothing their families can do about it. Because in Moonlight Bay, the police work their hardest to conceal crimes and silence victims. No matter what happens in the night, their job is to ensure that nothing disturbs the peace and quiet of Moonlight Bay.... Christopher Snow isn't afraid of the dark. Forced to live in the shadows because of a rare genetic disorder, he knows the night world better than anyone. He believes the lost children are still alive and that their disappearance is connected to the town's most carefully kept, most ominous secret--a secret only he can uncover, a secret that will force him to confront an adversary at one with the most dangerous darkness of all. The darkness inside the human heart. "From the Paperback edition."show more

Performance by Keith Szarabajka 10 cassettes: 0-553-47901-6 12 Hours Moonlight Bay, California. A safe, secluded small town that is at its most picturesque in the gentle nighttimes that inspired its name. Now, somewhere in the night, children are disappearing. The police cannot be trusted since they were long ago corrupted by a greater authority, hidden behind the supposedly shuttered walls of the adjacent military base, Fort Wyvern. Christopher Snow, victim of a rare genetic disorder that leaves him dangerously vulnerable to light, believes the lost children are still alive and is convinced the disappearances have everything to do with the catastrophic effects of secret research conducted deep within Fort Wyvern. Forced to live in the shadows, he knows the night world better than anyone, and sets out to find the missing five-year-old son of a former sweetheart. Never before in Dean Koontz's phenomenal writing career has he created a character quite like Christopher Snow--a creation so complex, so fascinating that the author has felt compelled to return to him. Listeners of Fear Nothing already know why. Those who meet him for the first time in Seize the Night will soon join leagues of others whose imaginations have been touched by this unique character and the extraordinarily eerie world of Moonlight Bay.show more
