A NoveleBook - 2014
#1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz is at the peak of his acclaimed powers with this major new novel-- a rich, multi-layered story that moves back and forth across decades and generations as a gifted musician relates the "terrible and wonderful" events that began in his city in 1967, when he was ten. There are millions of stories in the city-- some magical, some tragic, others terror-filled or triumphant. Jonah Kirk's story is all of those things as he draws readers into his life in the city as a young boy, introducing his indomitable grandfather, also a "piano man"; his single mother, a struggling singer; and the heroes, villains, and everyday saints and sinners who make up the fabric of the metropolis in which they live-- and who will change the course of Jonah's life forever. Welcome to The City, a place of evergreen dreams where enchantment and malice entwine, where courage and honor are found in the most unexpected corners and the way forward lies buried deep inside the heart.
