Publisher Comments:

With each of his #1 New York Times bestsellers, Dean Koontz has displayed an unparalleled ability to entertain and enlighten readers with novels that capture the essence of our times even as they bring us to the edge of our seats. Now he delivers a heart-gripping tour de force hes been waiting years to write, at once a love story, a thrilling adventure, and a masterwork of suspense that redefines the boundaries of primal fear—and of enduring devotion.

Amy Redwing has dedicated her life to the southern California organization she founded to rescue abandoned and endangered golden retrievers. Among dog lovers, shes a legend for the risks shell take to save an animal from abuse. Among her friends, Amys heedless devotion is often cause for concern. To widower Brian McCarthy, whose commitment she cant allow herself to return, Amys behavior is far more puzzling and hides a shattering secret.

No one is surprised when Amy risks her life to save Nickie, nor when she takes the female golden into her home. The bond between Amy and Nickie is immediate and uncanny. Even her two other goldens, Fred and Ethel, recognize Nickie as special, a natural alpha. But the instant joy Nickie brings is shadowed by a series of eerie incidents. An ominous stranger. A mysterious home invasion.

And the unmistakable sense that someone is watching Amys every move and that, whoever it is, hes not alone.

Someone has come back to turn Amy into the desperate, hunted creature shes always been there to save. But now theres no one to save Amy and those she loves. From its breathtaking opening scene to its shocking climax, The Darkest Evening of the Year is Dean Koontz at his finest, a transcendent thriller certain to have readers turning pages until dawn.

From the Hardcover edition.

Just the synopsis has me quivering with anticipation at the release of this book! This reminds me a little of Watchers, one of the finest examples of Dean R. Koontz's masterful tale telling of entanglements and relationships of humans and animals. I am looking forward to devouring The Darkest Evening of the Year in a crackling fireplace, apple cider, fuzzy slippers sort of evening. (But not so dark that I can't read it!)
