A “superior thriller”(Oakland Press) about a man, a dog, and a terrifying threat that could only have come from the imagination of #1 New York Times bestselling author Dean Koontz—nominated as one of America’s best-loved novels by PBS’s The Great American Read.
On his thirty-sixth birthday, Travis Cornell hikes into the foothills of the Santa Ana Mountains. But his path is soon blocked by a bedraggled Golden Retriever who will let him go no further into the dark woods.

As many others have said, Watchers was my first book by Dean Koontz, and I loved it! A splendid, top-notch story of horror, suspense, science fiction, warmth, romance, sadness, redemption, and beauty! I decided to read this book because I rented a VHS of the film version with Cory Haim, and I really enjoyed the movie. It has nothing on this wonderful book, though! As much as I like the movie, IT’S IN DIRE NEED OF A REMAKE!!! Since reading the book, my number one favorite by the author, I’ve read a total of 31 books by Koontz, including his awesome short story collection, Strange Highways, and the first three stories in the Odd Thomas series: Odd Thomas, Forever Odd, and Brother Odd. I have lots of favorites, but Watchers will probably always be at the top of the list!⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Watchers... My favorite book of all time!

I read Watchers for the first time in the early 1990s. When I came across it again on my iPad I immediately downloaded it and read it again. It is a perfect novel. Thank you Mr. Koontz!
I read this book in my 20’s; I’m 61 now. That’s how old it is. lol I couldn’t put the book down. I read every chance I could and read it in just a few days; that’s how good it is! I highly recommend it.
My favorite Dean Koontz book! I read this in my 20’s and have read many of his books since then, the publishing date is way before 1987, that must be republishing date because I first read this in the late 70’s.
