Publisher's Summary

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, number-one New York Times best-selling author Dean Koontz blends mystery, suspense, and acute insight into the human soul in a masterfully told tale that will resonate with listeners forever.

What the Critics Say

"Laced with fantastical mysticism, it’s an allegory of nonviolence, acceptance and love in the face of adversity. . . . The narrative is intense, with an old-fashioned ominousness and artistically crafted descriptions. . . . An optimistic and unexpected conclusion [mirrors] his theme. Something different this way comes from Mr. Koontz’s imagination. Enjoy." (Kirkus Reviews)

"Entrancing . . . as speedy a chase-thriller as any Koontz . . . has ever constructed. Written in Koontz’ late mellifluent and reflective manner . . . [Innocence is] fueled by deep disgust with the world’s evils [and] hope for redemption" (Booklist, starred review)

"[An] imaginative, mystical thriller from bestseller Koontz . . . This is the most satisfying Koontz standalone in a while" (Publishers Weekly)

    "Innocence"

    There was nothing I didn't like about this book. Totally inspirational in the goodness of our places in life and the value of each and every one of us individual to live and be the best we can by acceptance and love and forgiving of all especially ourselves and do better. Not to judge other or discount other just because of their differences where they come from or how they look. Trust love and have courage.

    Story
    "Why Dean... WHY"

    I loved the old Dean Kuntz novels. suspense and weird and dark. I'm not a fan off all this ghosts and spirits and twisted religious views he's been writing lately. sadly I think I'm done reading any of his new stuff after this. If you're a student of the bible, don't read this our you'll just end up frustrated at the story and all its religious overtones

    "Awesome"

    Best book I have listened to all year. Don't give up on it. It gets slow in the middle, but we'll worth it in the end.

    "Story never got interesting."

    Usually I really enjoy Koontz but this was just an "off" love story. I'm sure it had a deeper meaning that I'm too shallow to get, but because of that the story never got interesting. Don't read this thinking it will be a Lightning or an Odd Thomas, it will not satisfy.
