A riveting, intricate novel of suspense from #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz, unlike anything he's ever written before!
Set in a city of secrets, narrated by an enigmatic, irresistible protagonist, and suffused with atmosphere, heart, mystery, romance, and unexpected twists, Innocence is an utterly fresh, stand alone novel that showcases Dean Koontz at the height of his powers - and which represents a creative leap certain to attract new readers, not unlike his capturing of new constituencies with the introduction of the Odd Thomas series.
Addison lives hidden in the city, knowing no others of his kind. He ventures out of his deep redoubt only at night, for the supplies he resourcefully forages, and to glimpse the beauty of the world safe from those who live in the open, who would destroy him on sight. He bears no ill will toward these people, knowing their burdens are greater than his. But he has been on his own for years, and he is lonely - until the night he meets a quicksilver girl engaged in a dangerous duel of wits with a malicious, well-placed enemy...
