There are millions of stories in the city - some magical, some tragic, others terror-filled or triumphant. Jonah Kirk's story is all of those things as he draws readers into his life in the city as a young boy, introducing his indomitable grandfather, also a "piano man"; his single mother, a struggling singer; and the heroes, villains, and everyday saints and sinners who make up the fabric of the metropolis in which they live - and who will change the course of Jonah's life forever. Welcome to The City, a place of evergreen dreams where enchantment and malice entwine, where courage and honor are found in the most unexpected corners and the way forward lies buried deep inside the heart.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Told in the first person, the story of musical prodigy Jonah Kirk takes us into one man’s struggle to retrieve an inherited gift that often seemed lost or forever threatened. Another rich, multilayered stand-alone story by the author of Innocence.” Barnes&Noble.com, editorial review
“Beautifully crafted and poignant…The City is many things: serious, lighthearted, nostalgic, courageous, scary, and mysterious…[It] will have readers staying up late at night.” New York Journal of Books
“[Koontz] can flat-out write…The message of hope and depiction of how the choices you make can change your life ring true and will remain with you once the book has been closed.” Bookreporter
“Koontz is a superb plotter and wordsmith. He chronicles the hopes and fears of our time in broad strokes and fine detail, using popular fiction to explore the human condition.” USA Today, praise for the author
“The narrative of Jonah Kirk comes to life through the voice of narrator Korey Jackson…Jackson’s voice has a deep and projecting tone that becomes quickly engaging. He embodies Kirk when the story is told in the first person. He also delivers distinctive voices for the other characters and keeps the story moving.” AudioFile
