NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • This ebook edition contains a special preview of Dean Koontz’s The Silent Corner.

If you don’t take this note to the police . . . I will kill a lovely blond schoolteacher. . . . If you do . . . I will instead kill an elderly woman active in charity work. You have six hours to decide. The choice is yours.

The typewritten note under his windshield seems like just a sick joke. But in less than twenty-four hours, Billy Wiles, an ordinary, hardworking guy, is about to see his life take on the speed of a nightmare. Because a young blond schoolteacher is murdered—and now Billy has another note. And another deadline. This time he knows it’s no joke. He’s racing a killer faster than evil itself. And Billy must accept his terrifying challenge: The choice is yours.

Think fast. Fear never slows down. . . .

Another excellent thriller by Dean Koontz. His writing style flowed flawlessly and his twists and turns kept me spellbound. This is not a horror novel that keeps you under the covers at night; it’s a psychological journey that keeps you traveling through the pages all night to find where the road ends. I definitely recommend Velocity to fans who enjoy the journey.

I couldn't put it down! So scary I had all the lights on and found myself double-checking windows and doors! If you enjoy books that creep you out, this is the book for you!

Fastest book I've personally read

Very first Dean Koontz book, I've read. 7 Koontz books later, it is not my favorite, but I'll be damned if it isn't the fastest paced book I've ever read. To the person that said Intensity is faster, you're crazy. The flashbacks in that book slowed it down, and it had one of the longest intros before action started happening. That being said, it was still fast but Velocity was faster.
