After three long months, Tony, Joe and Ben must continue their journey to the secret lab in Colorado. They meet a man named Zeb, who controls thousands of dogs. Todd pulls out all the stops to try and capture Ben and kill Tony. Not only does Tony and her group has to avoid Todd, now they are being chased by a deranged man who controls an uncounted number of wild dogs. Ninety percent of the US population is dead. As they pass through towns ravaged by the deranged people after them, Stalker, the huge black Canadian timber wolf, saves their lives time after time. Even with Stalker’s help it is doubtful they will reach the secret lab. Against such overwhelming odds the group goes on, mile after tortuous mile, fighting for their lives each step of the way in this thrilling horror/science fiction sequel to THE CHOSEN ONE.
Todd watched the six men fidget in their seats waiting for him to say something. Let them wait; it would do them good, he thought. Tilting his chair back, he thought about what had happened two months ago. From his headquarters, located in the little town of Cicada, Missouri, he sent out people to hunt down Joe and a woman named Tony that his Master feared. Just when he thought he was reeling Joe and the woman in, things started going wrong. His right hand man, Ray, took twenty of his top men and disappeared. Although he didn’t know it then, Todd now knew Ray had left because of the way Todd had acted during one of his drunken stupors. When he awoke the next morning and found Ray gone, Todd went to his office and broke or threw out all the liquor bottles in the place. He had done this while nursing a brain-thumping head-ache.
A few days after that, for no reason, people with him started killing each other. He owed Joe dearly for that one. He tested the drug that he gave his people to keep them calm, but he found it to be ineffectual. Someone had put a worthless powder in its place. Without the drug to calm them, his peo-ple turned aggressive and started killing randomly. He ended up killing three dozen of them before control was established. The next few days were hectic. Things settled down when they found a fresh supply of the drug a hundred miles away, but it took four days to settle his people.
He decided to move his headquarters to a city that had a large supply of the drug. That was when all hell broke loose. Something happened when his men tried to move the high ex-plosives out of the storage building.
Todd was standing on the other end of town when a tre-mendous explosion lifted him off his feet and slammed him to the ground. A jagged piece of falling board hit him on the head, cutting a gash from his ear to his chin. Now he had an ugly scar on what was once an unblemished face. This was an-other thing that he owed Joe. He didn’t know how, but he was sure Joe had a hand in the explosion.
Todd’s people had trapped Ben in a small town. He told them to let Ben escape, hoping it would lead him to Joe. The only problem was Ben disappeared after escaping the town. There hadn’t been a sign of any of them until yesterday. One of Todd’s men, out rabbit hunting, stumbled across a small, concealed valley. He noticed smoke coming from the chimney of a house sitting in a small grove of trees. Deciding to investi-gate, he watched as three men and a large wolf came out of the house and took off in separate directions. Instantly, he knew these were the people Todd was looking for. He had heard horror stories about the wolf and became terrified that it might smell him, so he crawled back over the side of the hill. He coasted his truck to the bottom before starting it, but even then, the noise seemed terribly loud. Forcing himself to be calm, he slowly drove away on the dirt road to keep from rais-ing a lot of dust.
He almost killed three people when he roared into town and slammed on the brakes babbling that he had found them. Now we have you, Joe, Todd thought. Joe had escaped once, and given half a chance he would do so again. Todd made sure his people stayed back far enough to keep from alerting Joe. He had been on the phone all morning calling in people from up to three hundred miles away. By the next morning he would have hundreds of people surrounding the cabin. With a bitter smile, he thought that if it hadn’t been for the explosion there would have been four times as many people. The people he had would just have to do the job.
He looked across the table at Mickey and said, “You’re positive the men you sent out won’t be seen?”
“Yes, the closest one is two miles away. They all use long range glasses from the highest vantage points around.”
"While wonderfully crafted, this story isn't for those who suffer from paranoia. Mr. Baker will take your deepest fears in his hand and twist them into something new and terrifying. Stalker's Revenge will keep you up all night looking in dark corners and checking for the monster under the bed."

" Stalker’s Revenge had me engrossed the moment I started reading. This book lights sparks and is loaded with so many fast twists and turns that it spins you around on a roller coaster ride full of electrical charge. The character of Todd sent shivers down me. Just the part alone with the snow on the mountain and Todd in the camper was enough to cause me to take complete flight out of there. The storyline with Rita and Ross entwined as the brain chips with the computer flows great with the story. Kenneth Baker paints a picturesque scene that leaves a lasting impression. He is a talented author with a flare for writing spellbinding suspense that keeps you glued to your seat. Is this the end or is it just the beginning? Hold onto your seats, readers, this is a whirlwind of a ride that will have you begging for more as Mr. Baker leaves you spellbound once again!"

"Stalker's Revenge is a fitting and enthralling sequel to The Chosen One, and is Book 2 of The Earth Cleansing Series. Rampant with roller-coaster action suitable to an action-adventure movie, and character revelation coupled with undertones of spirituality and a new budding romance, few readers will be able to set Stalker's Revenge aside until completion; and even then, like The Chosen One, it will linger long in the imagination. Author Kenneth E. Baker demonstrates a fine grasp of imagination and develops a world we will all hope never comes into existence. Extreme and frequent graphic violence and sexual violence might be considered unsuitable to some readers." --Frist, Two Lips Reviews
