Publisher's Summary

There are millions of stories. Some magical, some tragic, others terror-filled or triumphant. Jonah Kirk’s story is all of these things as he introduces his indomitable ‘piano man’ grandfather; his single mother, a beautiful, struggling singer; and every day saints and sinners who will change the course of Jonah’s life. Welcome to The City, a place where enchantment and malice entwine, and the way forward lies buried deep inside the heart.

    I am a voracious reader both print and audio. The best stories hold you from the opening paragraph and keep you wanting more.

    "Unexpected"

    The book jacket blurb does not do this story justice. An unexpected social lesson as well as a thrilling journey through the life of the main character Jonah. Where else could you get an overview of some of the last great musicians as well as an exciting ride through the city. Just wish it had of had some of that great music throughout the story. 10 out of 10 again Mr Koontz!

    "Charming but overlong"

    This is a story that is charmingly told, but told too slowly and not enough happens. The different elements introduced oh-so-slowly don't really come together in any satisfying way at the end. Not one of Koontz's best.
