Dean Koontz has had ten hard covers and fourteen paperbacks reaching the number one slot on the New York Times bestseller list. Koontz’s newest novel, Breathless, delivers a thrilling novel of suspense and adventure: the story of a world where good itself is an endangered species and one man will risk his life—and more—to save it from extinction.


VJ Books’ co-founder, John Hutchinson has been a Koontz fan for over 30 years, “The first book I offer any new reader from my personal library is Lightning. It remains my favorite Dean Koontz book. VJ Books is very excited about the release of Breathless and are confident that it will compare to other Koontz classics.”


It is largely due to Mr. Hutchinson’s love of Koontz books that VJ Books offers signed copies. “He does not travel much to promote his books and is very selective about where he signs”, offers Hutchinson.


Breathless introduces two new characters to the Koontz pantheon, Grady Adams and Camellia “Cammy” Rivers.  Grady spots a pair of stunningly beautiful furred animals unlike anything he’s ever seen. They flee the instant they detect his presence, but the mystery of that brief encounter remains. In the days ahead, Grady will approach the creatures again, gaining their trust but coming no closer to solving their mystery. For this he enlists the help of an old friend, veterinarian Camellia “Cammy” Rivers, who, in turn, is stunned—and enchanted—by Grady’s new “pets.” Soon Homeland Security will place Grady’s home and hundreds of square miles of surrounding wilderness under quarantine. And Grady, Cammy, and the two creatures they’ve come to feel they must protect at all costs find themselves virtual prisoners—and the unwilling focus of an army of biologists, naturalists, and research scientists.
