About the Author

Just because Lennox Randon has lived in both Texas and Iowa, worked as both a police officer and technical writer, had a dog named Stroke, and has a friend named Lee doesn’t make Friends Dogs Bullets Lovers autobiographical in any way.
Fact is, it’s chock full of the half truths, outright lies, and totally made up stuff that we all have come to love and expect in quality, escapist fiction.
Randon is a graduate of the Houston Police Academy and The University of Texas at Austin with a B.S. in Education. In addition to police work and technical writing, he has also worked as a teacher.
As of this writing, he is living with metastatic GIST cancer and working on a historical fiction novel.
Randon currently lives in Iowa with his wife Lileah, daughter Lark, and two unwelcome hairy interlopers of the feline variety.
His website, including music, photos, and a blog, is www.LennoxRandon.com.

Suspension of disbeliefFDBL is replete with suspense, drama, comedy, and respect and honor for close relationships. Perhaps, because of his fascination with good fiction, Randon’s writing style seems to be educational and metaphorical, though well balanced with both intellect and wit. One can certainly admire his use of dysphemistic euphemisms. Read the book, as it can be appreciated on so many levels.

This novel begins quickly as two, long-time friends take their dogs out for a walk and apprehend a pair of serious criminals. As a result of their success, these two single guys must now try to reinvent themselves in a new city and end up finding out that it’s hard to let go of their past. It’s a great story that I found both intriguing and humorous. Noah and Lee have been friends since they were young. As they take their dogs out for a run in Maquoketa State Park, they run into some trouble. The two friends locate and apprehend the suspects after gunshots were exchanged, following a confrontation. The police make the arrest and after Noah and Lee have made their statements, the two friends are placed in the Witness Protection Program. No longer in Iowa, the two are moved to Texas, where eventually they are reunited with their dogs. In the Witness Protection Program, the two friends must make an overhaul of themselves: changing their appearances, their jobs, and they must not reference their previous lives. Easier said than done, with these two. Noah used to be on the police force and this will always run through his blood. His first job doesn’t go so well and being in a new community is hard for him. Lee on the other hand is a flirt, he is all over the place. His “I know a guy” stories, allow him to talk about their previous lives with anyone. These talks also get the two of them into a secret of line of business that the Witness Protection Program is unaware of. Instead of laying low and keeping quiet, the two of them seem to be out in the open a lot, which gets them in trouble with their contact in the Program. They both are single so I anticipated some dating to occur in the book, which did happen. It was interesting how the two friends handled this, as they were not supposed to reveal their past to anyone. I liked the quick pace of the book and I liked the characters. I liked how the characters fed off each other and their light-heartedness. I enjoyed the struggles they had trying to remain under the radar and their business venture together was entertaining. This novel wasn’t deep, it was a light and fun novel to read. I was glad our book club read this novel as I don’t think I would have picked it up otherwise.
