9780007357956: Your Heart Belongs to Me

Dean Koontz's compelling and high-concept new thriller is the story of a young man who owes his life to a heart transplant … but confronts an imminent and far worse death because of whose heart it was.

At 34, Ryan Perry never expected to find himself on a waiting list for a heart transplant, with time running out.

So when miraculously he receives a new heart and the transplant is a success, he thinks his troubles are over. A year later, he has never felt so good.

But then he starts to get mysterious gifts from an unknown person. He has the feeling he is being watched. $100,000 suddenly vanishes from his bank account, donated to the cardiology department of the local hospital.

And then comes a terrifying threat: everything he has – his money, his reputation, his friends, his freedom, and his new heart – will all be ripped away from him. He is promised a nightmare death.

In grave danger, alone with his beating heart and its secrets, can Ryan unlock the mystery of the enemy who threatens his very existence?

Prepare for the unexpected in this compelling and fast-paced thriller from the master of suspense.

Review:

Surely an author such as Dean Koontz can afford to relax? After all, every new offering from him always enjoys massive sales, so could it be time to rest on one’s laurels? It’s to Koontz’s credit that he chooses not to do that, and tries to ensure that each new book is subtly different from its predecessor (but not so different that it would alienate his considerable fan base). Your Heart Belongs To Me is close to being vintage Koontz (the title is not romantic, but a piece of macabre wordplay).

Ryan Perry, at 34, is a young man – hardly of an age to be on a waiting list, nervously hoping for a heart transplant. Luck appears to be with him: he is the recipient of a new heart, and (fortunately) the transplant takes, triumphantly. But a year passes, and Ryan begins to receive gifts in the shape of hearts, sent anonymously. A feeling of paranoia sets in – and this feeling is exacerbated when a large amount of money vanishes from his bank account – it has been donated to a local hospital’s cardiology department. Needless to say, all of this is a prelude to something truly horrific: everything he owns – including his new heart – is to be torn from him, and he is informed he will die a grisly death. Who is Ryan’s tormentor?

Readers of Koontz may not know the plot of Your Heart Belongs To Me (the author routinely comes up with fresh ones), but they’ll recognise that cold, unsettling vision that makes his books so grimly compelling. Not subtle writing – we don’t go to Dean Koontz for that – but totally unputdownable. --Barry Forshaw
