An exclusive novella, available only as an eBook, from the international bestselling master of suspense.
The chilling account of a pivotal encounter between innocence and ultimate malice, Darkness Under the Sun is the perfect read for Halloween – or for any haunted night – and reveals a secret, fateful turning point in the career of Alton Turner Blackwood, the killer at the dark heart of What the Night Knows, the forthcoming novel by Sunday Times bestselling author Dean Koontz.
There once was a killer who knew the night, its secrets and rhythms. How to hide within its shadows. When to hunt.
He roamed from town to town, city to city, choosing his prey for their beauty and innocence. His cruelties were infinite, his humanity long since forfeit. But still…he had not yet discovered how to make his special mark among monsters, how to come fully alive as Death.
This is the story of how he learned those things, and of what we might do to insure that he does not visit us.
Darkness Under the Sun is as chilling as it is unforgettable. It is available exclusively for download in electronic book format.

Darkness Under the Sun
Absolutely brilliant, as usual from Dean. I sometimes dread getting a new book by him as I know I won't be able to put it down! The way he develops the plot is amazing allowing you to visualise the characters and feel their emotions. I wouldn't want to summarise the story so as not to give anything away and spoil it for you. More, more please Dean! X
Rip off !!!
Although i love dean koontz' books this is a complete rip off !!! I expected a full book and got 139 pages .think a refund should be given as it wasnt described as a short book and i was completely misled
I love dean koontz, a great short story, started off good, fab in the middle, but a pointless drawn out ending, that I thought would go somewhere but I turned the page to see the end of the book. Disappointing.
