really liked it
Read in July, 1987

"The story begins in Santa Barbara, California. Travis Cornell, a former Delta Force operative feels that his life has grown pointless, is exploring a canyon near his home when he encounters two genetically engineered creatures that have escaped from a top-secret government lab. One, a golden retriever with extraordinarily enhanced intelligence, befriends Travis; the other, a terrifying creature known as the Outsider, appears to be trying to kill the dog. After eluding the Outsider, Travis takes the dog home and names him Einstein.

Meanwhile, Nora Devon, an introverted young woman, whose abusive aunt has recently passed away, is attacked in her home by a man who attempts to rape her. Travis and Einstein intervene and the three quickly form a tight bond.

Travis, Nora, and Einstein soon find themselves on the run not only from the Outsider, but from federal agents determined to track down the lab escapees and Vince Nasco, a ruthless professional assassin hired to kill the creatures and eliminate any witnesses he may encounter along the way."

The first Koontz book I ever read. MUCH better than the crap-fest that was the movie with Corey Haim.
