Summary
Two unlikely couples share a past secret that brings them together with disastrous results. Amy Redwing and her boyfriend Brian rescue golden retrievers, while Vanessa and Harrow lead a dark existence that includes the abuse of Vanessa's mentally challenged daughter. When Amy rescues a golden named Nickie, the same name as her dead child, strange events propel the two couples to meet. Is it just a coincidence that dog is god spelled backwards?
Critique
This story is not your usual Koontz horror story, but instead is much more supernatural in tone. Dog lovers will like the vivid descriptions of the rescued dogs' interactions with each other.
