Ashley Bell: A Novel
by Dean Koontz. Edition Date:: 12/08/2014
Ashley Bell might be Dean Koontz’s finest and most personal novel yet. It is everything you’d expect from Koontz—multilayered and richly told and fueled by page-turning suspense—but it is also as tender as it is terrifying, a story about love, mortality, and the redemptive power of imagination.”—Benjamin Percy, author of The Dead Lands
 
Ashley Bell unfolds like a tricky Oriental fan, with layers and more layers of intrigue seeping through porous pages. But what makes my heart throb is not just the beauty of Dean Koontz’s masterful prose, but the depth of his heart and the dizzying height of his wicked imagination, enchanted by his artless playfulness, easily making this novel about novel-making the best book of literary genre fiction on the landscape.”—Da Chen, New York Times bestselling author of Colors of the Mountain
 
Ashley Bell is a lyrical, surprising, and sensitive novel, with the narrative propulsion that is Koontz’s signature. You won’t want to put it down except to contemplate its thought-provoking twists. . . . A fascinating meditation on the hidden interactions of literature, health, and inner strength.”—Matthew Pearl, author of The Last Bookaneer

“Readers will fall hard for Bibi Blair, the fierce and dangerously smart heroine of Dean Koontz’s mind-bending thrill ride, Ashley Bell. Koontz delivers a sharp, unsettling, philosophically stimulating examination of consciousness, memory, and the intense power of story. He doesn’t just ask the big questions, he turns them inside out.”—Michelle Richmond, author of Golden State
