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)

    "Dated"

    The plot was compelling enough to keep my interest through the end, but you can tell this was one of Koontz's earlier works. There were numerous dated tech references that were eye-roll inducing. The character development was annoyingly cliche-ridden, but WORST of all was the narrator. I am almost certain that I've heard him doing industrial video voice-overs and he should've stuck to that market because story telling is definitely not his bag.

    "Great Read"

    I enjoyed this book from the very first page to the last! Loved Enstein. Koontz was perfect in his description and antics of the way dogs behave.If only this could be true. All dog lovers would want a "key pad" for their beloved pets.

    Good read .. bizzare, yes but that is Koontz isn't it!!

    I think you will all enjoy it..

    "Good but an x-delta force would not be so inept"

    Why not say Travis was a nerd, then his inability to strategize dangerous confrontations would not have us cursing him and the author. Koontz always developes numerous characters and makes us like them and pull for favorable outcomes. Too many alternate, superior options in dealing with incounters were ignored like a young boy trying to deal with tough problems. The story was entertaing but if I were delta I would want to slap Koontz around for givin him a copy boy mentality

    "Have fun, listen for fun"

    I enjoyed The Watcher; I have often found the narrator makes a big difference in my interest in the book, and this narrator did a wonderful job. His character voices were subtle and well within his range, and did not sound forces or face which makes a huge difference. I am new to Dean Koontz and enjoyed this book and will be listening to Midnight next. I listen to books to be taken to a world that is unlike my own, therefore an imaginative plot removed from lifes realities is to my liking. This plot was fun to place myself within and guess how I would react. Have fun with this listen, and listen for fun. PMAT

    Story
    "absolute garbage."
    What disappointed you about Watchers?

    It was like Koontz wrote this in 20 min. He pulled down his corduroy pants and pinched a fat loaf on the pages. It reads like a high school seniors lit. Final. I can't believe this was published. It makes me want to go back in time and murder the man who invented writing. I have listened
    to over 300 books on audible and this was the stupidist 4$ I have ever spent. Dean Koontz is the absolute antithesis of Stephen king. Horrible writer. Just ass tastic.

    "Very good"

    This was a good story, I loved the ending. I like it when humans can show the strength and compasion to animals and each other in such adversity.
