This story has it all: A guy, a girl, and a dog. How could you go wrong? The basic premise of the story is dark and shadowy genetic experiments in a dark and shadowy, clandestine, super secret government laboratory. But the story gets much better from there. The dog represents "good" and there is also "evil" but I will let you discover that for yourself. The story is also about boy and girl things but with a Dean Koontz twist. The mutt is a seemingly normal golden retriever but with a Dean Koontz twist. If you like boy/girl/dog stories this one is a winner.
