You're left a young widow, husband killed when his van went out of control on a rain-slick pavement across the street from your house.

What's left? Two young children whom you love dearly, the veterinary hospital your husband owned, and an Irish setter, a survivor of the van crash, who was to be introduced for the first time as a family pet that fateful night.

Thus begins the dilemma of Louise Andrews. She had always thought that she and Jack were an ideal couple - happily married, sharing the same point of view about anything that really mattered. But as grief begins to recede and Louise must start to put her life back together, she realizes that Jack alone ran the family, beguiled or maneuvered everybody into accepting his point of view.

On her own now, she starts to develop confidence in her ability to deal with day-to-day problems. But as she begins to emerge as her own woman, she is increasingly conscious that with each independent decision she makes, the Irish setter follows her every move more and more closely. Gentle with the immediate family, he is the malevolent enemy of the man with whom Louise becomes emotionally involved several months after Jack's death. Fido is alternately a lovable house dog and a killer.

With this novel's hair-raising grand finale, you'll want to read this book in a well-lit room with all doors securely locked.
