From the harsh wilderness of the Black Hills to the rugged isolation of the San Juan Mountains in Colorado, Dog Walker is a high adventure suspense thriller from start to finish. After running away from home at age fourteen, Scott Garrison was trained by one of the last true Sioux Scouts in the ways of the wilderness. Now a respected environmental attorney in L.A., Garrison is still drawn away from the hectic city life once a year on the Soul Find—a required Sioux ritual that cleanses the mind, body and soul. But this year what he finds in the Colorado Rockies could get him killed. Garrison must use stealth, combat and survival skills, and psychological warfare to leave the mountain alive. And he only has forty-eight hours to stop an evil plot to destroy the world as we know it.

Today, now living in California, Heath continues the tradition by entering the Sierra Nevada Range during the harshest winter weather in which to test and improve his survival abilities.

Dog Walker based on 0 ratings. 4 reviews.
The perfect reading location for Dog Walker is near a blazing fire; dim lights, and snow falling beyond your snug, protected world. Kizzier sets his stage so well that you will 'feel' the biting coldness of the Colorado Rockies. Dog Walker is a great new approach to the thriller. I read a review that said 'Dog Walker is a thriller with soul.' And I absolutely agree. There is a lot of book packed into 250 pages (very small print)and well worth every cent. This is one of those you'll remember and pick up again and again.
This book was a page turner from start to finish. Two very late nights and two very tired mornings later I can say without pause how pleased I was to have a thriller be so full, exciting, and different. I was beginning to believe that the publishing industry had decided that 'thrillers' did not really need a STORY to go along with the thrills. Well, I can assure you, DOG WALKER has story, thrills, great characters, and a few extras that I won't ruin here--you'll have to discover those for yourself. I give this book a five+ rating and can't wait for his next one.
Hi. First of all I want to thank you for considering DOG WALKER. As an avid reader myself, I am well aware of the time and energy spent in finding that 'perfect' next book--and I hope this satisfies. I wrote DOG WALKER with the clear intent of giving the reader a full, unusual, and unexpected experience--while carefully maintaining the pace and drive of a true adventure/thriller. . . Enjoy . . .and let me know how you like it. Heath Kizzier (Heathkizzier.freeservers.com)
In June, I read Dog Walker in e-book format and have become an instant fan. I've ordered a hard copy, and several others as gifts. At first I was cautious--the author is an actor for heaven sakes--but apparently he's been in the wrong business. Main Character, Scott Garrison, is a true 'reluctant Hero'. Like Jason Bourne of Ludlum's 'Bourne Identity,' Garrison is thrown into a savage situation with no way out except to engage the enemy and fight. And fight he does with incredible ingenuity, despite the crippling odds. Early on, Kizzier takes us back to a harrowing time in Garrison's live in which he must make a life changing decision. The detail of these scenes is frightenly realistic and makes me wonder what hell the author has endured in his own past. Dog Walker is a terrific read and well worth a trip to the bookstore.
