A “superior thriller”(Oakland Press) about a man, a dog, and a terrifying threat that could only have come from the imagination of #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz—nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read.

On his thirty-sixth birthday, Travis Cornell hikes into the foothills of the Santa Ana Mountains. But his path is soon blocked by a bedraggled Golden Retriever who will let him go no further into the dark woods.

That morning, Travis had been desperate to find some happiness in his lonely, seemingly cursed life. What he finds is a dog of alarming intelligence that soon leads him into a relentless storm of mankind’s darkest creation...

  • Best I've Read in Memory

    By PCailliet
    No book before this do I recall almost bringing tears at the end. Yes I have enjoy all sorts of novels from the Jack Reacher series to Stephen King, but none quite like this that so touched me as well as keeping me on the edge of my seat throughout.

    I've spent quite a large portion of my life reading Koontz & King. This is by far - DK's finest, the pinnacle of his career ! Throughly enjoyable ! Thank you !
  • Door To Satisfaction

    By J.S. MacJames
    The damsel, the hero, and the cunning canine will have you standing on your chair applauding much like Rocky Balboa landing the final blow to Drago. This was the first book I ever read without being assigned by a teacher. Thousands of stories later and I honestly can't say any one of those is better.
