Who is Ashley Bell?
From #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz comes the must-read thriller of the year, perfect for readers of dark psychological suspense and modern classics of mystery and adventure. Brilliantly paced, with an exhilarating heroine and a twisting, ingenious storyline, Ashley Bell is a new milestone in literary suspense from the long-acclaimed master.
Note: There is currently some confusion about a listing for a book called THE SECRET FOREST, with a publication date in 2015, which may or may not be the UK version of ASHLEY BELL, or an entirely different book with the wrong publication date. I will clarify here when we get some answers on that.

From “one of the master storytellers of this or any age” (The Tampa Tribune) comes the stunning final adventure of “one of the most remarkable and appealing characters in current fiction”(The Virginian-Pilot)—as #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz brings the unforgettable odyssey of Odd Thomas to its dazzling conclusion.
Odd Thomas is back where it all started . . . because the time has come to finish it. Since he left his simple life in the small town of Pico Mundo, California, his journey has taken him to places strange and wonderful, mysterious and terrifying. Across the land, in the company of mortals and spirits alike, he has known kindness and cruelty, felt love and loss, saved lives and taken them—as he’s borne witness to humanity’s greatest good and darkest evil. Again and again, he has gone where he must and done what he had to do—for better or worse—with his courage and devotion sorely tested, and his soul forever changed. Every triumph has been hard won. Each sacrifice has taken its toll.
Now, whatever destiny drives him has finally steered his steps home, where those he cares for most surround him, the memory of his tragically lost true love haunts him, and one last challenge—vast and dreadful—awaits him. For Odd Thomas, born to serve a purpose far greater than himself, the wandering is done. Only the reckoning remains.

The third book in this planned trilogy, which would have followed FEAR NOTHING in 1998 and SEIZE THE NIGHT in 1999 and been titled RIDE THE STORM, is currently the most delayed and probably the most anticipated Koontz book that has yet to be written. He reportedly reached the halfway point and decided it had gotten too large and epic in size and put it aside to finish it later. Problem with that is, he still has never returned to the book to finish it. Sorry, there is still no definitive information on when Dean Koontz will actually get around to writing RIDE THE STORM. But he has promised us all that it will be written, so hang in there!
THE CITY will be published as a $9.99 mass market paperback on February 24th, 2015.
It will include the bonus story "The Neighbor."
