BONUS: This edition contains an excerpt from Dean Koontz's The City.

From the #1 New York Times bestselling master of suspense comes a riveting thriller that probes the deepest terrors of the human psyche—and the ineffable mystery of what truly makes us who we are. Here a brilliant young man finds himself fighting for his very existence in a battle that starts with the most frightening words of all…

At thirty-four, Internet entrepreneur Ryan Perry seemed to have the world in his pocket—until the first troubling symptoms appeared out of nowhere. Within days, he’s diagnosed with incurable cardiomyopathy and finds himself on the waiting list for a heart transplant; it’s his only hope, and it’s dwindling fast. Ryan is about to lose it all…his health, his girlfriend Samantha, and his life.

One year later, Ryan has never felt better. Business is good and he hopes to renew his relationship with Samantha. Then the unmarked gifts begin to appear—a box of Valentine candy hearts, a heart pendant. Most disturbing of all, a graphic heart surgery video and the chilling message: Your heart belongs to me.

In a heartbeat, the medical miracle that gave Ryan a second chance at life is about to become a curse worse than death. For Ryan is being stalked by a mysterious woman who feels entitled to everything he has. She’s the spitting image of the twenty-six-year-old donor of the heart beating steadily in Ryan’s own chest.

And she’s come to take it back.

Unrated Critic Reviews for Your Heart Belongs to Me


I don't want to give too much away, but at one major point when a suitable heart donor cannot be found (Ryan's heart transplant does not happen until almost the halfway point of the story), our protagonist uses his plentiful resources to move things along.

This is the same feeling that I get in many with many of Koontz’s works as his books sometimes read as if the author has this grand idea for a story but then does not know how to properly end the tale, or gets a little bored with the story, and then tries to wrap everything up in a couple pages.
