Publisher's Summary

Moonlight Bay, California: a safe, secluded small town that is at its most picturesque in the gentle nighttimes that inspired its name. But now, somewhere in the night, children are disappearing.

When he sets out to find the missing five-year-old son of a former sweetheart, Christopher Snow believes that the lost children are still alive. He is convinced the disappearances have everything to do with the catastrophic effects of secret research conducted deep within Fort Wyvern. To keep those secrets, extremely violent and powerful forces are willing to conceal even the most heinous crimes.

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. Fans of Fear Nothing already know why. Those who meet him for the first time in Seize the Night will soon join millions of others whose imaginations have been touched by this unique character and the extraordinary, eerie world of Moonlight Bay.

First Snow: download Dean Koontz's original Moonlight Bay thriller, Fear Nothing (Unabridged).

What the Critics Say

"No best-selling suspense novelist creates magnetic characters as consistently as Koontz does....This novel stands as vintage Koontz, a rousing crowd-pleaser that recapitulates some of his recurrent themes." (Publishers Weekly)

    "One of Koontz best."

    Second book in the Christopher Snow series. Take the time to enjoy these. The narrator is awesome. You won't be able to turn it off.

    "Great Listen"

    I have listened to this book far too many times. used to own it on tape, this rendition is just as good. Not a huge Koontz fan, but this book and Fear Nothing are my favorites. The narrator is great, and while the stories are a bit contrived and power fantasyish with a border line Mary Sue main character, the stories are enjoyable. Good action with wonderful character interaction, and just a touch of Lovecraftian Horror.

    "Best story ever!"

    This two-part series is my absolute favorite of any book ever from any author ever. And in the audio, best reader ever. He's perfect. Dean Koontz is a genius. Would love to see a part three.

    "Unexpected turns = great story"
    What made the experience of listening to Seize the Night the most enjoyable?

    The characterizations are wonderful, the story is interesting, and there is plenty of levity for what is a somewhat gritty story


    What did you like best about this story?

    The twists and turns... things I didn't see coming made it really engaging


    What about Keith Szarabajka’s performance did you like?

    No holds barred


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It started out fast, hit a lull, then scorched through to the end... hard to put down once the lull was over


    Any additional comments?

    Read the first book first, so you have more background. :)

    Story
    "First Koontz book didn't leave me disappointed!"
    Would you listen to Seize the Night again? Why?

    Maybe in the future. It was a really good book.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    I loved the time travel aspect. I was wondering what would happen next at every turn.


    What about Keith Szarabajka’s performance did you like?

    He didn't talk too low, I hate having to turn the volume up really loud to hear the narrator over road noise.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I found myself sitting in my garage not wanting to get out of my truck after my commute.
