Another wonderful masterpiece by King. Thought provoking and a rabbit hole that leads to the darkest reaches of King's mind.

I don't normally write reviews but this story has left me awestruck. Dean Koontz's greatest work in my opinion. At the end you will be left with a great hope for the world and a realization of the power of connections made with others, be it humans, dogs, or any other form of life capable of love.
