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 heâ€™s been
waiting years to write, at once a love story, a thrilling
adventure, and a masterwork of suspense that redefines the
boundaries of primal fearâ€”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, sheâ€™s a
legend for the risks sheâ€™ll take to save an animal from
abuse. Among her friends, Amyâ€™s heedless devotion is often
cause for concern. To widower Brian McCarthy, whose
commitment she canâ€™t allow herself to return, Amyâ€™s 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 Amyâ€™ s
every move and that, whoever it is, heâ€™s not alone.
Someone has come back to turn Amy into the desperate, hunted
creature sheâ€™s always been there to save. But now thereâ€™s 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.
