A bestseller on Amazon, the Wall Street Journal, and USA Today.
Master of suspense and number one New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz takes readers on a winding path of lost love, unlikely second chances, and frightening promises in his novel Lost Love.
Emily Carlino disappeared a decade ago after her car broke down on a California highway. She was suspected of being one of serial killer Ronny Lee Jessup’s unidentified victims.
David Thorne, a writer, is still suffering from the loss of his lifelong love and the shame of not being there to save her. He’s been looking for closure in every way he can since then. He also pays Jessup visits in jail on a daily basis, desperate for information about Emily’s final hours so he can eventually lay her body to rest.
Then David finds Maddison Sutton, who is seductive, adventurous, and acutely aware of everything David has lost. But it’s the fact that Maddison is just like Emily in every way, right down to her kisses, that takes his breath away. As the fantastic becomes credible, David’s fascination grows, Maddison’s enigmatic history becomes clearer, and the fear grows.
Is she, in fact, Emily? Or an enticing dead ringer? In either case, the central question remains: What game is she playing? Whatever the cost of finding out, David is willing to take it for this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity. He hasn’t felt this motivated, optimistic, or deeply in love in ten years…and he’s terrified.
