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.

Critic Reviews

“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

The story started off pretty well but quickly lost its way, real pity. Very nicely narrated which was the only saving grace for this book

Quicksilver- D.Koontz

In my view tedious. I enjoyed the early works, but not this one. I listened to it all, a little begrudgingly.

strange

I like Koontz but struggled to finish. Uses a lot of long rarely used words and overly elaborate descriptions. Also made up words such as psychic magnetism.

Well that was weird...

Interesting, not my usual listen and I admit I multi-tasked throughout so didn't give it my entire attention... Easy on the ears, amazing performance by narrator, which kept me interested otherwise.. nup, not my cup of tea!

Not the usual quality of a Koontz novel

Did not enjoy this one at all. Struggled from start to finish to engage with the characters. The plot was thin at best and overall this book was a disappointing listen

Amazing use of humour and the reader performed was matched to the character so brilliantly, I absolutely believed he was Quinn.

Well interesting Story

Quite an enjoyable humorous read the narrator adds to the story and i wonder how they got such a good match. The author has quite range and repertoire and every book makes me wonder where the author’s views stand
