Welcome to The Friday 56 hosted by Freda’s Voice.


This is a really fun meme!

The only rules are to grab a book (any book), turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader and find a sentence or a few (no spoilers) that grabs you and post it.

Then go over to Freda’s Voice and leave your link so we can visit your 56!

My 56 for this week is from:

 77 Shadow Street

by Dean Koontz



Genre: Horror

From page 56 in the paperback.

He didn’t think he was a berserk killer, but he had never been tested.  One thing Winny had learned from books was that you had to be tested in life to discover who you were and what you were capable of doing.


Read on if you want to know more.


Welcome to the Pendleton. Built as a tycoon’s dream home in the 1880s and converted to luxury condominiums not quite a century later, the Gilded Age palace at the summit of Shadow Hill is a sanctuary for its fortunate residents. Scant traces remain of the episodes of madness, suicide, mass murder—and whispers of things far worse—that have scarred its grandeur almost from the beginning.

But now inexplicable shadows caper across walls, security cameras relay impossible images, phantom voices mutter in strange tongues, not-quite-human figures lurk in the basement, elevators plunge into unknown depths. With each passing hour a terrifying certainty grows: Whatever drove the Pendleton’s past occupants to their unspeakable fates is at work again. And as nightmare visions become real, as a deadly tide begins to engulf them, the people at 77 Shadow Street will find the key to humanity’s future . . . if they can survive to use it.

  3. It’s hard to wrong with Dean Koontz and this looks like one I haven’t read yet. Looking forward to hearing what you think.

    This looks interesting. It’s been a long time since I read a Dean Koontz novel. I should add him back into the rotation.
