While in the midst of reading Jezebel before retiring for the night, my Great Dane mix strode up to the side of the bed and I was spooked. The story will make you wonder and Kessler knows how to keep the reader intrigued. For a dog story where the canine is helpful and not dangerous, try the unique story line about Oro.

It's an exciting, fast moving story that won't let you put the book down. If you like the style of Dean Koontz or Steven King you'll love JEZEBEL.

He figured he’d die of old age. Not with his throat in the mouth of his beloved Jezebel, his beautiful coal-black Great Dane. Jezebel lover her master. Until she didn’t. And now she’s loose in the streets, in the dark. Something is wrong with the dogs. They are turning on their masters, ripping and tearing, no trace of man’s best friend left in them. We think we’ve tamed the long ago wolf that crawled out of the dark to share man’s fire. But it’s still in there, and now it’s at the fore. The sweet dog you cuddle with could rip off your face. What could be the cause? It’s up to Animal Control Officer Tony Parker to get to the bottom of it as more people are savaged and more die. As a dog lover, I was worried about this story. I knew that the dogs would have to be stopped, that some would have to be destroyed, and that’s a bitter pill to swallow. But the author knew what he was doing. He put you right in the character’s shoes as they fought to survive. There could be no tender feelings, only kill or be killed. And the animal control officer, Parker, was still humane, he still didn’t want to kill any dogs he didn’t have to. The cause of all this was very interesting. You won’t be able to guess until the author gives you enough clues. It’s really quite creative and adds it own terror to the tale. Imagine it. Every other house has at least one dog. We feed them, love them, trust them. What if they turned? What if that pet became a killing machine? And what if they travelled in packs? No one would be safe. This book puts you there. There’s no mercy from the dogs. They will not stop. Many die. Add in a few sub plots and it gets disturbing on many levels. A tough story, written so you can handle it.

If you like thrillers, you'll love Jezebel. Be sure your door's locked if you read it at night. Scary! Don't go to bed alone. Has a unique erotic scene that will turn you on. For another psychological thriller, check out Kessler's Brainstorm.
