Audible, Inc. has made available Dean Koontz's Black River as an audio download from audible.com. The novella, written by one of America's most popular authors, was originally a short story that appeared in a 1999 issue of Mystery Scene Magazine and was the inspiration for a 2001 TV movie of the same name. Audible is pleased to bring this forgotten short story back to life, as Black River has never previously been released in audio.
"I seldom write novellas, but I had great fun with Black River," said Dean Koontz. "Watching the movie was no fun, but this great audio makes up for that!"
In Black River, sci-fi novelist Bo Aikens leaves Los Angeles for a small, idyllic town where everyone is oddly content and welcoming of strangers. Bo soon finds that things are not as they seem and discovers the secrets behind an invisible force that rules and controls the mysterious town of Black River.
Acclaimed narrator Scott Brick performs the Audible original production of Black River. Brick’s readings are consistently among the most popular downloads at audible.com. He has brought to life works by authors ranging from Frank Herbert, Tom Clancy, and Nelson DeMille to Stephen Crane, William Faulkner, and Truman Capote.
The audio download of Black River is two hours long and retails for $12.95 at audible.com. Members of the AudibleListener membership program can purchase the program at a discount.
