Description



About the Book



With a new Afterword by the author, this classic Koontz title--one of his most popular and acclaimed novels--features stunning new cover art. Two genetically altered life forms break loose from a top-secret government lab. One is "Einstein, " a friendly dog. The other--The Outsider--is a deadly hybrid. Reissue.



Book Synopsis



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...



Review Quotes



Praise for Watchers

"His best story yet! Cross Lassie with E.T., add a touch of The Wolfen and a dash of The Godfather, and you get a sense of some of the ingredients in this thriller....this is the sort of thoroughly frightening and entertaining tale that has its readers listening for noises in the night."--Publishers Weekly

"His best ever, an imaginative and unusual blend of sense and sentiment. A fable about love and trust...with echoes of Frankenstein and The Island of Dr. Moreau. A breakthrough for Koontz."--Kirkus Reviews

"Displaying...more depth and a lot more humor than Stephen King, Dean Koontz has really hit his stride."--The New York Times Book Review

"Convincing characters, good dialogue...written in prose of a literary quality that puts most bestselling authors to shame."--Los Angeles Daily News

"Watchers is so well crafted that it is nearly everything one could wish for in a modern suspense novel....First-class entertainment."--The Cleveland Pain Dealer

More Praise for Dean Koontz

"Dean Koontz is a prose stylist whose lyricism heightens malevolence and tension. [He creates] characters of unusual richness and depth."--The Seattle Times

"Tumbling, hallucinogenic prose....'Serious' writers...might do well to examine his technique."--The New York Times Book Review

"Lyrical writing and compelling characters...Koontz stands alone."--Associated Press

"In every industry there exist 'artists' that are not only unforgettable, but know their craft better than the rest. Dean Koontz...is among these artisans."--Suspense Magazine

"[Koontz] has always had near-Dickensian powers of description, and an ability to yank us from one page to the next that few novelists can match."--Los Angeles Times

"Perhaps more than any other author, Koontz writes fiction perfectly suited to the mood of America...novels that acknowledge the reality and tenacity of evil but also the power of good...[and that] entertain vastly as they uplift."--Publishers Weekly
