Bernard King – Witch Beast  (Sphere, 1989)

Alun Hood

Blurb:
Uptown, the depressed Victorian slum area of Monkhampton, long overdue for development, is dying: its shopping precinct boarded up, its church abandoned, its people moved away – apparently into thin air …

At the heart of Uptown, in Salvation, an affectionate snow-white Newfoundland recovers slowly from the vicious maltreatment of his previous owner. And as Leader regains his strength, his coat starts to change colour, and he grows – and grows …

Detective Chief Inspector Ben Wilson, investigating a strange case of arson in Uptown, is attacked by a pack of dogs turned feral, a pack that behaves like a disciplined army …

Then the murders start. And Wilson begins to see a hideous connection; a link that shatters all our comfortable preconceptions about domestic pets. If he and the eccentric Professor Harker are right, man’s best friend is man’s most dangerous enemy – an enemy beyond human control.
