Calling all suspense lovers! Dean Koontz’s newest novel, Innocence, is set to hit bookshelves on December 10, 2013 – just two weeks from today.

Innocence - Dean Koontz

We’re excited to be able to offer a sneak peek of this suspenseful novel to our Talk of the Country readers. Before even opening the first page of Innocence, the synopsis alone will pull you in:

He lives in solitude beneath the city, an exile from society, which will destroy him if he is ever seen.

She dwells in seclusion, a fugitive from enemies who will do her harm if she is ever found.

But the bond between them runs deeper than the tragedies that have scarred their lives. Something more than chance—and nothing less than destiny—has brought them together in a world whose hour of reckoning is fast approaching.

In Innocence, #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz blends mystery, suspense, and acute insight into the human soul in a masterfully told tale that will resonate with readers forever.

Ready for more? Check out the first five chapters of this masterfully told tale. We bet you’ll have a hard time waiting until December 10 to read the rest of Innocence!
