Publisher's Summary

This cult favorite coming-of-age suspense is now fully revamped! NEW recording. NEW narrator. Now with BONUS short story “Silence.”

“A fearsome tour of an adolescent's psyche. Terrifying, knee-knocking suspense.” - Chicago Sun-Times

“Hair-raising from cover to cover.” - Houston Chronicle

#1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz gives new meaning to blood brothers in this chilling audiobook of friendship gone awry.

No one could understand why Colin and Roy were best friends. Colin was so shy; Roy was so popular. Colin was fascinated by Roy - and Roy was fascinated by death. Then one day, Roy asked his timid friend: “You ever killed anything?” From that moment on, the two were bound together in a game too terrifying to imagine - and too irresistible to stop.

NOW WITH BONUS SHORT STORY “SILENCE”

30 years later...the story continues with the spine-tingling follow-up “Silence."

30 Years Old

People say they can't believe this is Dean Koontz and I wondered the same thing, While now packaged as Dean Koontz, it was written 30 years ago under a pseudonym and authors generally do that while honing their skills. I have been a fan of Dean since the 80's but this bad and I'd rather not consider it he work. Maybe the short story will redeem this for me but I don't think it will.

Think twice before buying.

Koontz Creepy

Koontz can write a variety of compelling stories and has hit the nail on the head with this a touch too realistic creepy story of childhood friends gone wrong. The short story should be the start of a series ala Ryan Decker but with a Koontz voice.

Great stories and performances!

I remember reading the short story version of Roy and Colin. The long version was so much better and torturous as well! lol. "Silence" was amazing...loved it and would love to follow more of Colin Jacobs' adventures in taking down the agency. More please!

Can't be my beloved Dean K.!

I am a lifelong fan of Dean Koontz but I could not get very far into this book. It's just too dark. I can see where the manipulation of innocense is leading and I do not desire to go down that road. I don't hear Dean's familiar voice in this at all.

A Slow start, A great ending

This book improved tremendously as you listen. The ending has me excited about the next book in this series.

First one I didn’t like

I had to stop listening to this book when one of main characters told how he killed a cat by stabbing it and was talking about killing a dig with a pitchfork. I know the author loves dogs so I just don’t get the story line of such a cruel kid.

Could have been a great story...

I totally enjoyed both the main story and the short story until the endings of both.
I feel there were loose ends and aspects that left me with questions. A shame really, as they were both great until the ends.
