(Previously titled "The Other Side of the Woods")
#1 New York Times bestselling master of
suspense Dean Koontz delivers a mesmerizing new thriller that explores the
razor-thin line between the best and worst of human nature—and the anarchy
simmering just beneath society’s surface—as a likeable, successful family man is
drawn into a confrontation with a foe of unimaginable
Bestselling novelist Cullen “Cubby” Greenwich is a lucky man and
he knows it. He makes a handsome living doing what he enjoys. His wife, Penny, a
children’s book author and illustrator, is the love of his life. Together they
have a brilliant six-year-old, Milo, affectionately dubbed “Spooky,” and a
non-collie named Lassie, who’s all but part of the family.
So Cubby knows
he shouldn’t let one bad review of his otherwise triumphant new book get to
him—even if it does appear in the nation’s premier newspaper and is penned by
the much-feared, seldom-seen critic, Shearman Waxx. Cubby knows the best thing
to do is ignore the gratuitously vicious, insulting, and inaccurate comments.
Penny knows it, even little Milo knows it. If Lassie could talk, she’d tell
Cubby to ignore them, too.
Ignore Shearman Waxx and his poison pen is
just what Cubby intends to do. Until he happens to learn where the great man is
taking his lunch. Cubby just wants to get a look at the mysterious recluse whose
mere opinion can make or break a career—or a life.
But Shearman Waxx
isn’t what Cubby expects; and neither is the escalating terror that follows what
seemed to be an innocent encounter. For Waxx gives criticism; he doesn’t take
it. He has ways of dealingwith those who cross him that Cubby is only beginning
to fathom. Soon Cubby finds himself in a desperate struggle with a relentless
sociopath, facing an inexorable assault on far more than his life.
Fearless, funny, utterly compelling, Relentless is Dean Koontz at his
riveting best, an unforgettable tale of the fragile bonds that hold together all
that we most cherish—and of those who would tear those bonds asunder.
