This ebook edition contains a special preview of Dean Koontz’s The Silent Corner.

The girl who said no to death.

Bibi Blair is a fierce, funny, dauntless young woman—whose doctor says she has one year to live.

She replies, “We’ll see.”

Her sudden recovery astonishes medical science.

An enigmatic woman convinces Bibi that she escaped death so that she can save someone else. Someone named Ashley Bell.

But save her from what, from whom? And who is Ashley Bell? Where is she?

Bibi’s obsession with finding Ashley sends her on the run from threats both mystical and worldly, including a rich and charismatic cult leader with terrifying ambitions.

Here is an eloquent, riveting, brilliantly paced story with an exhilarating heroine and a twisting, ingenious plot filled with staggering surprises. Ashley Bell is a new milestone in literary suspense from the long-acclaimed master.

Ashley Bell

The story was fascinating but did drag in places—I thought the ending could have been better but I stayed with it because the story was different and good. Congratulations on the story.

Suspenseful

Another great book by Dean Koontz. Suspenseful with a great adventure of the mind that ends on a happy note!

Okay

I was totally enjoying this book from the very beginning but as the book transitioned I felt that Koontz became bogged down in the Literary universe that he was trying to create The second half became clichéd and tried too hard to be clever the last chapter left me feeling annoyed that the story was still continuing

Nevertheless 3 stars for the beginning, for originality, and because I still wanted to finish it
