Quicksilver by Dean Koontz

 


A Book Review


Synopsis


Shortly after dawn, on a lonely highway outside the tiny town of Peptoe, Arizona, three men on their way to work discover an abandoned infant nestled in a white bassinet.  Except for the blue blanket which wrapped the baby, the only other item with him is a note with the name “Quinn Quicksilver”, and his date of birth. The men turn the 3-day-old baby over to the police who place him in a Catholic orphanage in Phoenix. 


For whatever reason, the baby is never placed and grows up – mainly happily – in the orphanage. As he nears his 18th birthday, typically the time orphans must leave the home, the kind Sisters locate a job for him as a writer/researcher at a locally published magazine.


Though unexceptional, Quinn was happy with his life until the day of strange magnetism which compelled him to drive out into the middle of nowhere. Then it helped him find a valuable coin. Shortly thereafter, this strange magnetism helped save his life when two government agents began to pursue him for an unknown reason.


During a shoot-out at a desolate former dude ranch, Quinn finally meets his destined traveling companions – the beautiful Bridgett and her grandfather Sparky.


The trio discover they are all compelled by the same strange magnetism.  As they travel together through the Arizona Sonoran Desert, they are drawn toward something sinister and an enemy they must defeat.  Although we are looking at just two 19-year-olds and a grandfather, they discover resources within themselves they did not know they possessed.

  2. This sounds a good mix of mystery, adventure and interesting characters with an intriguing plot. I like the sound of the three characters traveling together discovering resources in themselves they didn't know they had. It certainly sounds fascinating...Thank you for a great review and recommendation.

  5. I have often thought about picking up a Koontz novel (even though his writing isn’t in my preferred genres) because of so many extremely positive reviews from you and others whose literary opinions I respect. This novel sounds like it might be a good one for me to try!

    1. Margaret, if you've never read Dean Koontz, you should begin with "Watchers", probably the best one he ever wrote. I like all his books, but I have favorites like Watchers that I often re-read. But you are welcome to try Quicksilver too. :)
