Publisher's Summary

Twelve-year-old Crispin has lived on the streets since he was nine — with only his wits and his daring to sustain him, and only his silent dog, Harley, to call his friend. He is always on the move, never lingering in any one place long enough to risk being discovered. Still, there are certain places he returns to. In the midst of the tumultuous city, they are havens of solitude: like the hushed environs of St. Mary Salome Cemetery, a place where Crispin can feel at peace — safe, at least for a while, from the fearsome memories that plague him... and seep into his darkest nightmares. But not only his dreams are haunted.
The city he roams with Harley has secrets and mysteries, things unexplainable and maybe unimaginable. Crispin has seen ghosts in the dead of night and sensed dimensions beyond reason in broad daylight. Hints of things disturbing and strange nibble at the edges of his existence, even as dangers wholly natural and earthbound cast their shadows across his path. Alone, drifting, and scavenging to survive is no life for a boy. But the life Crispin has left behind, and is still running scared from, is an unspeakable alternative... that may yet catch up with him.

As a longtime Dean Koontz reader who left for a while in search of other authors, but always with the understanding that I'd return, I found Midnight Mind to be a winning combination of the Koontz I'd known from old and a fresher, more daring author who has openly accepted the supernatural world his previous books would always seem to skirt around. I've been buying up a lot of the audiobooks of His I'd once read back in the day and, TBPH, was unaware of this release until this morning (seeing it advertised on the personal interest section of Audibles listings).

The narrator was sublime in His reading who made the story, characters and place intensely vivid.

This is the first (proper) review I've written for a Book which has definitely fired my imagination and reminded Me why I started reading Dean Koontz in the first place. As well as being the inventive I need to properly check back on His entire bibliography.
