Read an Excerpt

One of the private-school boys grabs hold of his buddy's arm. "Let's get outta here," he says. "See the fangs on that monster? And the way his ears are sticking up?"

I don't like him calling Smokey a monster. If Smokey's baring his fangs, it's because he's on the alert.

I head for the cash. I feel like Smokey needs me. Like I understand him in a way no one else does.

Justin has a soft spot for dogs. When he lands a job with some shady characters who rent security dogs, he is forced to make a very grown up decision. A quick read, lots of action and a good plot.
