FROM THE PUBLISHER
Moonlight Bay, California. A safe, secluded small town that is at its most picturesque in the gentle nighttimes that inspired its name. Now, somewhere in the night, children are disappearing. From their homes. From the streets. The police cannot be trusted to solve the mystery because in Moonlight Bay the police work their hardest to conceal crimes and silence the complainants rather than catch the perpetrators. They were long ago corrupted by a greater authority, hidden behind the supposedly shuttered walls of the adjacent military base, Fort Wyvern. When he sets out to find the missing five-year-old son of a former sweetheart, Christopher Snow believes the lost children are still alive. He is convinced the disappearances have everything to do with the catastrophic effects of secret research conducted deep within Fort Wyvern. To keep those secrets, extremely violent and powerful forces are willing to conceal even the most heinous crimes. But Christopher Snow has developed a secret advantage of his own. His rare genetic disorder - xeroderma pigmentosum, XP - leaves him dangerously vulnerable to light. Forced to live in the shadows, Christopher Snow knows the night world better than anyone, even those adversaries who seem at one with darkness.

I ordered this book because it sounded good. When I got it I realized that I had already read it-- and it WAS good. LOL

I wasn't able to really get into this book... but it wasn't the book's fault. I've been sick and couldn't concentrate on it. But overall the story was good, and it had some good parts that I liked.

Thanks so much for offering books on the BC forum -- I got in over my head with "owing" books last year and had to send off my copy of Seize the Night to another BCer before I finished it. I'm thrilled to have another (and much nicer condition than my first one!) copy to read at leisure.

Looking forward to Snowman's new adventures.

I purchased this book from Goodwill Thrift store in Danville, Virginia. As is my SOP (standard operating procedure), I will donate this book back to Goodwill now that I have finished it. This is the 3rd Dean Koontz novel that I have read and is my favorite. The other two are "The Door To December" and "Phantoms".
