Dark Rivers of the Heart
by Dean Koontz
Publisher: Alfred A. Knopf
Book Club Edition
A man and a woman -- she is a figure of mystery; he is a mystery even to himself -- meet by chance in a Santa Monica bar. Suddenly -- first separately, and then together -- they are fleeing the long arm of a clandestine and increasingly powerful renegade government agency: the woman hunted for the information she possess, the man mistaken as her comrade in a burgeoning resistance movement.
The architect of the chase is a nan of uncommon madness and cruelty, ruthless, possibly psychotic, and equipped with a vast technological arsenal: untraceable access to the government's electronic information banks, its surveillance systems, weaponry, and material. He is the brazen face of an insidiously fascistic future. And he is virtually unstoppable.
But he has never before come up against the likes of his current quarry. Both of them -- survivors of singularly horrific pasts -- have lived hidden, nomadic, solitary lives. Both have learned to expect "savagery as surely as sunrises and sunsets." Both have long been emboldened by their experiences to fight with reckless courage for their own freedom. Now they are plunged into a struggle for the freedom of their country and for the sanctity of their own lives.
Once again, in Dark Rivers of the Heart, Dean Koontz has given us an electrifying thriller, a fear of the imagination that steers us just along the razor edge of a familiar, terrifying reality. It is the work of a master suspense storyteller writing at the pinnacle of his form.
