Présentation de l'éditeur

Knowing (Nicolas Cage, Rose Byrne) screenwriter Ryne Douglas Pearson brings a terrifying tale of dark forces to life in The Donzerly Light.
 
 
Jay Grady wakes up in handcuffs. Sitting at a table in an isolated room. Across from him sits a man who wants Jay to recount his life. Every detail of it.
 
If not, he'll kill him. 
 
So begins Jay's reluctant journey to a past he's tried to forget. From his days ruling Wall Street as an impossibly intuitive stock picker, to just a few hours before, when he pumped six bullets into a transient outside a dying Missouri town. A drifter he'd once thought was just an ordinary man.
 
But he was far from ordinary. And Jay came to realize he was not a man at all, but something darker. Something sinister.
 
An evil he was destined to face.

En savoir plus sur l'auteur

Ryne Douglas Pearson is an accomplished novelist and screenwriter. He is the author of several novels, including Cloudburst, October's Ghost, Capitol Punishment, Simple Simon, Top Ten, The Donzerly Light, All For One, and Confessions. He is also the author of the short story collection, Dark and Darker. His works have been translated into Dutch, Finnish, Spanish, Japanese, Italian, German, Polish, French and other languages. His novel Simple Simon was made into the film Mercury Rising. As a screenwriter he has worked on numerous movies. The film Knowing, based on his original script, was released in 2009 and opened #1 at the box office. Receiving Four Stars from Roger Ebert, who branded it 'among the best science-fiction films I've seen', it went on to earn more than $180 million worldwide. He has also done uncredited work on films such as the remakes of The Day The Earth Stood Still and The Eye. He is a member of the Writers Guild of America-West, Science Fiction & Fantasy Writers of America, and International Thriller Writers.

Despite the often 'dark' nature of his novels and films, Pearson has been noted to have a 'sweet, disarming quality' by Entertainment Weekly-an accusation he has been unable to shake. When not writing he is usually thinking about writing, or touting the wonders of bacon in online conversations. He is addicted to diet soda and the sound of his children laughing. A west coast native, he lives in California with his wife, children, a Doberman Shepherd and a Beagle Vizsla.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Spider Web Worth Getting Caught In 12 mars 2011
Par Susan Bennett - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Ryne Douglas Pearson's The Donzerly Light opens with an interrogation. The man being interrogated - Jay Grady - has just murdered someone, but the people holding him don't seem to be policemen. And, for Jay, that's probably the nearest thing to normal that's happened to him in eight long years.

Pearson creates a spider web of a plot that draws not only his protagonist but also the reader in and refuses to let either go. The spider, as it turns out, is a bum who holds the sign bearing the words "Buy the donzerly light" early in the book. Jay, an ambitious Wall Street junior broker, is the fly. Jay's life is forever changed when he drops some change into the bum's can: first, he's given the Midas touch and then something much more sinister.

Though the main character is initially somewhat unlikeable, the story is so fascinating that this reader kept turning the pages anxiously. The path the young man is forced to walk eventually strengthens his character and makes him sympathetic. All of the characters seem real, from his childhood sweetheart to the man interrogating Jay, which helps to ground the more fantastic elements of the story.

I would recommend this book to anyone interested in paranormal suspense. It was highly entertaining and had a great twist at the end.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A very nice read 23 août 2012
Par Mark Schneider - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This was my first exposure to this author and I thoroughly enjoyed his storytelling. Mr. Pearson's paranormal thriller kept me turning pages long after I should have gone to bed. The plot is essentially a "be careful what you ask for..." story in which Mr. Pearson does an excellent job of misleading the reader about who is the antagonist in the story. I really enjoyed Part II of the book as the author does an excellent job of exploiting the main characters remorse and, to some extent, his ignorance.

The only item that kept me from giving 5 stars is that the author over-explained in parts. I found myself scanning paragraphs on occasion.

All-in-all, a very nice read.

Par Sidney Williams - Publié sur Amazon.com

In his intro to "The Donzerly Light," author Ryne Douglas Pearson notes the publisher of his earlier thrillers chose not to release it because it didn't fit comfortably into the same category. Happily for readers in this new era, categories don't matter. Donzerly Light is a rich and exciting journey that follows its hero, Jay Brady, from great heights to deep despair all while he unravels personal mysteries and seeks to understand bizarre circumstances. It's a character-rich excursion tinged with what might be termed magic realism, reminiscent of Dean Koontz or "Last Call" by Tim Powers but unique, fresh and captivating in its own right.

Jay is a late-eighties stock broker, working his way up when he sees a homeless man holding a sign with a phrase Jay "coined" as a child. After offering the man a few coins, Jay's soon picking winning stocks. His good fortune comes with consequences, and the story is soon zigging and zagging into unexpected territory and building to a heart-pounding climax and revelation. Filled with themes of grief, greed and redemption that are all relevant to the current era, it's good this book has seen the light.

Not sure what to say about this book.  I kept reading it. But the ending was unrealistic.  The whole book was out there...yet, I kept reading trying to figure out how all the prices to the puzzle fit.  Guess what, you don't find that out until the last few pages.  

The book made me turn the pages in a rapid fashion. But ...frequently I was uncertain why I kept reading.... Yet I am glad I did  would have never figured this one out.  Mystical and as the characters say, "spooky".... You decide if you want to read it but, expect it to be oddly capturing .

Title seemed interesting and had me downloading and the reading page after page....It was definitely entertaining and not my usual read....at times it was difficult to dredge. thru some of the pages but all in all the twists and turns and unknown kept me turning until the end. Better watch who you make "deals" with....
