|The Darkest Evening of the Year|
by Dean Koontz
Dean Koontz explores the inner workings of a truly sick mind. The horrific motives that are behind the actions of at least one of the characters are hard for normal people to comprehend, yet completely plausible given the twistedness of some disturbed individuals.
Amy rescues golden retrievers. She devotes her life to helping abolish animal cruelty. She is also hiding from a past of nightmare quality. Brian has also suffered at the hands of a psycho in his past. Yet somehow Amy and Brian find each other and hope to find happiness together.
The plot is just as dark and twisty as some of its characters. It is fast paced and riveting, full of suspense and spellbinding action.
