We rated this book:


There are prolific authors who have a loyal following, stay in their genre lane, and embroider consistent themes throughout their books. Dean Koontz is among them. This book reads movie-ready; he is a very good writer, and the reader can easily visualize every scene in the book. Koontz also has a great love of golden retrievers, which figure prominently in many of his stories. This reader agrees that all dogs are exceptional, but in Devoted, Koontz’s hero dog is paranormal. The readers will concur that it would take such a special dog to fend off all the strange happenings within this suspenseful story. Koontz pays homage to dogs with the epigram which begins this volume: “all answers are contained in the dog.”

The reader can find easy parallels to current events in this story of unbridled corporate greed setting loose a plague upon the world. The events in the book are truly monstrous and perhaps not for the faint-hearted such as me, but faithful readers of Koontz will be delighted by another volume from this master.
