The must-read thriller of the year: Featuring the most exhilarating heroine in memory and a sophisticated, endlessly ingenious, brilliantly paced narrative through dark territory and deep mystery, this is a new milestone in literary suspense and a major new breakout book from the long acclaimed master.

At twenty-two, Bibi Blair’s doctors tell her that she’s dying. Two days later, she’s impossibly cured. Fierce, funny, dauntless, she becomes obsessed with the idea that she was spared because she is meant to save someone else. Someone named Ashley Bell. This proves to be a dangerous idea. Searching for Ashley Bell, ricocheting through a southern California landscape that proves strange and malevolent in the extreme, Bibi is plunged into a world of crime and conspiracy, following a trail of mysteries that become more sinister and tangled with every twisting turn.

Unprecedented in scope, infinite in heart, Ashley Bell is a magnificent achievement that will capture lovers of dark psychological suspense, literary thrillers, and modern classics of mystery and adventure. Beautifully written, at once lyrical and as fast as a bullet, here is the most irresistible novel of the decade. 

My thoughts about Ashley Bell ~~

I am a huge fan of Dean Koontz. I used to read every book of his, as he published them. Then for some reason, I stopped reading his books. I'm not really sure why and it makes me sort of sad that I did. When I read the synopsis of Ashley Bell though, I knew I had to get reacquainted with one of my favorite authors. 

Ashley Bell was exactly the fantastic story that I remember Koontz writing in the past. It totally drew me in and I flew through the pages. And this book serves as a reminder to me of why I loved his books in the past. I will forever be a fan! 

And Ashley Bell is book #1. There will be more to come! Yay!! 

I received a copy of Ashley Bell from NetGalley in exchange for my honest review.
