The Darkest Evening of the Year by Dean Koontz
This story is a masterpiece. You would think the multi-multiple points of view would be confusing, but each character is so unique, whether on the page for a page or for the entire book, that they come to life within the book. For dog lovers Koontz has stayed true to his vision of Golden Retrievers as something more than just a dog. Even each canine in this story has personality and leaps off the page.
Romance is my first reading love, but every once in awhile I venture into a scary forum with Koontz, King, and Bentley Little.
