Publisher's Summary

2022 SOVAS Award Winner for Best Voiceover Audiobook Narration—Thriller

#1 New York Times bestselling master of suspense Dean Koontz takes a surprising and exhilarating road trip with a man in pursuit of his strange past—mile by frightening mile.

Quinn Quicksilver was born a mystery—abandoned at three days old on a desert highway in Arizona. Raised in an orphanage, never knowing his parents, Quinn had a happy if unexceptional life. Until the day of “strange magnetism.” It compelled him to drive out to the middle of nowhere. It helped him find a coin worth a lot of money. And it practically saved his life when two government agents showed up in the diner in pursuit of him. Now Quinn is on the run from those agents and who knows what else, fleeing for his life.

During a shoot-out at a forlorn dude ranch, he finally meets his destined companions: Bridget Rainking, a beauty as gifted in foresight as she is with firearms, and her grandpa Sparky, a romance novelist with an unusual past. Bridget knows what it’s like to be Quinn. She’s hunted, too. The only way to stay alive is to keep moving.

Barreling through the Sonoran Desert, the formidable trio is impelled by that same inexplicable magnetism toward the inevitable. With every deeply disturbing mile, something sinister is in the rearview—an enemy that is more than a match for Quinn. Even as he discovers within himself resources that are every bit as scary.

What the critics say

“Narrator Todd Haberkorn really gets into the characters, all of whom he gives drastically different voices that fit their personalities. It's as if he is a cast of multiple people.… Haberkorn's entertaining narration guides the listener as Quinn and company desperately try to stay ahead of a sociopathic force.”AudioFile Magazine

“Todd Haberkorn, who narrates and performs the novel, does a fine job of adjusting his voice as Quinn ages. A child's simple gratitude, a young man's wanderlust, a woman's heartache, and an old man's experience all give listeners a clear aural sense of which character is speaking. Koontz's fans will enjoy the familiarity of the novel, while new listeners will enjoy the plot.”—Library Journal

“As an author, Dean Koontz is one of the very best when it comes to a riveting novel of mystery, suspense, and action. Quicksilver…narrated by impressive storytelling skills of Todd Haberkorn, will be treasured by the legions of Dean Koontz fans.”Midwest Book Review

Disappointing

So much filler for most of the book and then not enough development for the important parts. This book did not feel very inspired, it just felt shoveled out for the masses. I enjoy Koontz so I will read whatever comes next. That said, if it is as poorly designed as this trite. It will be my last.

not very good, sadly.

a mashup up many of Dean Koontz' previous ideas. The narration also wasn't very good I didn't find that the inflections matches the events in the story. I also found that there were too many oddly timed pauses. This may have been bad editing but, I can't tell. it wasn't annoying to have the cadence of human speech interrupted so often. I had never noticed this in any other audiobook before.

Gripping Story

Really enjoyed this story. Kind of reminded me of Odd Thomas in the sense of orphan boy with special gifts. The end did kinda leave you hanging, but maybe there is a second book in the future

Dean Koontz As Good As Ever

This was a great story that flowed well and made sense, but seemed to end with a lot more to still happen. Hopefully there will be another book with Quinn Quicksilver. The only negative was the reader's voice was not melodic and grated on my nerves!

QuickSilver

Well if I had just gone by the reviews, I wouldn’t have purchased this book. It by far is not his best work but it still has his charm and sense of what could be. I liked it

Fabulous

Dean Koontz is by far one of the best authors , His ability tell a tale using almost lyrical prose and weave a story with mystery and delight is unmatched . Darkness and light are a common theme and is found here as well with magical characters. I sincerely hope there will be more to come !!!
