Cujo is a novel by bestselling horror author Stephen King.
Cujo is a family dog who is bitten by a rabid bat. Cujo is a fairy tale for adults, one with so many unthinkable but altogether possible coincidences, which will give any parent enough nightmares to last a lifetime.
Tad Trenton thinks there is a monster in his closet. Despite the reassuring words of his parents, Tad is certain that a monster with red eyes is hiding in the closet. Vic is afraid his wife has a lover.
In truth, Donna has been having an affair with a local man, Steve Kemp, but she has recently ended it. Vic and his partner, Roger, are struggling to keep their advertising business, AdWorx, from going under.
Their largest client, Sharp Cereals, has recently had a public debacle when a bad batch of food dye in their newest cereal caused a number of children to appear to be bleeding internally. Now, in the midst of this scandal, Vic and Roger think they are going to lose this client and cause them to lose the majority of their income.
Roger has decided they should go on a two week long trip to gather the information they need to create a new campaign that will repair the damage.
Once, a year ago, Vic took his car to Joe Camber, a local mechanic with a place in the more rural area of Castle Rock, and was happy with his service. Vic wants Donna to take the Pinto to Camber, but forgets to make the arrangements before he leaves. Donna cannot reach Joe Camber by phone because he is dead.
The family has had its own drama. Joe agrees because the trip would mean he could go to Boston with his drinking buddy, Gary Pervier, to see a baseball game and visit some places of ill repute.
Joe drives his wife and son to the bus station, then returns home to finish up his work only to find himself worrying about the dog. However, Joe finds Gary dead. Joe goes into the kitchen to call the police, unaware that the dog has been sleeping in the basement.
The dog finds Joe and kills him, too.
