Of course, the image of a Golden Retriever on the cover drew me to it immediately. I didn't even read the back cover. Sold, to the lady who carries her Golden Retriever on her shoulders.
This book was most certainly a wild ride. Koontz draws dog lovers in with an amazing first scene about an avid dog rescuer, Amy Redwing. You'll fall in love with her, and for good reason. Even her boyfriend, an architect who shares her strange and complicated past life situations, becomes a hero, despite his less adventurous nature.
Twists and turns, as well as alternating settings and characters, have you wondering what's what, not having any clue as to where the book is going. Just when I was completely and totally baffled, Koontz began to drop hints and little tidbits--just enough for a Golden Retriever to sniff out of a corner and decide it was important.
This edgy, slightly sci-fi novel has you utterly sitting on the edge of your seat as you read, leaving you finally, as the climax unfolds, feeling unbelievably satisfied and captivated by his talent.
With this book review, I will begin to develop a page of books, where readers who enjoy a good dog book, can find selections that suit their fancy. Ads for these books, many of which will be available through Amazon, will accompany them in the reviews, allowing you to pick up your own copy, either new or used, quickly and cheaply. As my husband's favorite shirt says:
