Publisher's Summary

From a top-secret government laboratory come two genetically altered life forms. One is a magnificent dog of astonishing intelligence. The other, a hybrid monster of a brutally violent nature. And both are on the loose.

Best-selling author Dean Koontz presents his most terrifying, dramatic, and moving novel: The explosive story of a man and a woman, caught in a relentless storm of mankind's darkest creation.

©2004 Dean Koontz; (P)2004 Brilliance Audio

What the Critics Say

"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 supernatural thriller, which should move Koontz a notch closer to Stephen King's high-rent district." (Publishers Weekly)

    "ended abruptly, but a good story"

    Liked the story very much, though I wanted a bit more detail at the end with the loose ends woven together a bit more closely, but still worth the listen. Great narrator: kept voices separate well.

    "YUP! THE BEST"

    Probably one of the best. tender, gory, suspenseful. strong characters. But still not the one I'm looking for. Dog introduced in Dragon Tears. it's been a long time since I listened on cassette, but have thought about the performance of that dog for all these years.Fantastic!

    "Good story made great by an excellent performance"
    What did you love best about Watchers?

    The combination of adventure, humor and light science fiction along with a satisfying ending makes Watchers an entertaining break from heavier reading.


    What about J. Charles’s performance did you like?

    Just as the two sides of a coin fit together, I think that this story fits J. Charles and J. Charles fits this story. I definitely would not have enjoyed this story half as much without J. Charles' unique characterizations, tones and cadence. He draws the listener into the story and makes one care about the characters without taking himself or the story too seriously. I look forward to hearing more from him in the future.


    Any additional comments?

    I do not read or listen to books to get sad, and though I was once a fan, I had given up on Dean Koontz several years ago after he killed off some favorite characters "out of left field" in a couple of his books. I took those as a sort of betrayal of the reader. I thought I would give him another chance though, and I am glad that I did with this book.

    "Delightful"

    Dean Koontz's imagination is incredible!
    I love his books, but as a dog lover this book captivated me and kept me listening intently until the end.

    "Interesting"

    Fun story. Some goid twists. The reader's tone was always a bit aloof. Often not serious enough or dramatic enough for the scene.

    "One of His Best!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Watchers to be better than the print version?

    I just love to listen to books. Especially when doing things around the house or driving.
    And Dean has a way of making you a part of the book.


    What about J. Charles’s performance did you like?

    Excellent performance! Completely enjoyed his read.


    Who was the most memorable character of Watchers and why?

    Einstein What a dog! I want one of his pups :)

    "Hard to stop listening"
    If you could sum up Watchers in three words, what would they be?

    Kept me interested

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    The story line kept up pace and did not let the reader down.
