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.

Critic Reviews

"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 my favorites

though the narrator had different voices than what I had in mind, I still enjoyed the story. Christopher snow series is one of my favorites. I can't wait to start fear nothing.

Great story!

This is a good story. The beginning of the book captured my attention right off and kept me on the edge of my seat. Plot twists were conventional. Great read.

Terrifying while mystifying, my fav

This is the best audiobook I have ever listened to the only thing you will be disappointed about is that Dean Koontz hasn't released the third book yet.... After all these years

Keith Sarabajka's performance was incredible.

Story with twists and turns everywhere

The story was awesomely enjoyable. The story was so well told that I thoroughly enjoyed listening. I hope he continues to do more narrations for Mr. Koontz. I would like to see the series continued as the characters especially Chris Snow are multifaceted and wonderfully interwoven. The plot is fun and complex so you are not sure where it will go next. Orson and Mongo Jerry are especially interestingness. I hope to
read and hear many more books from Mr. Koontz.

Good but slow

Maybe Koontz writing style but it seems like it takes forever for anything to happen. Overall a good book and the reader is excellent

This would be a brilliant short story!

Before I get to the negatives, I'd like to tip my hat to Dean Koontz for once again coming up with a truly unique story concept.

The first 50-60% of the book has nearly NOTHING happening except for ludicrously wordy descriptions of unimportant scenery, people, and thoughts which are running through the character's head and added little to the story progression. It is like a freshman English exercise in descriptive writing.

If Koontz would have edited this book and the first in the series into a single volume with 1/2 the words, it would have been one of his best. As it stands, the reader must slog through hundreds of pages to get to the interesting and important bits. I
