Fourteen-year-old Justin Andrews met tough guy cop Spencer Watley during an important stakeout. Spencer, determined to nab a group of cyber killers, wasn’t going to let anything get in his way, especially a smart mouthed punk like Justin. After they part ways; Spencer is killed by the hackers and finds himself stuck outside the gates of heaven. He is told by an angel that he can redeem his callous existence as a human through the J.R.P. (the jerk redemption program). That means, either go to sensitivity training boot camp, which to his horror consists of non-stop Oprah and Dr. Phil reruns, or go back to earth and help Justin and his dysfunctional family. Spencer opts to help Justin.
But the angel pulls a fast one on Spencer. He can only go back in the body of his K9-partner. Spencer refuses, but like it or not, he becomes a dog. “I’ve been screwed!” he screams as he’s slowly morphed into a dog that closely resembles a mop.
And if being a dog wasn’t bad enough, Spencer also swallowed an important microchip his killers need to hack into personal computers and steal millions.
Spencer needs to find out what the killers are up to, so he swallows his pride and forms a bond with Justin. The cop/dog relays to Justin his past and with the combined efforts of Justin’s girlfriend, Shahla; they discover the hacker’s plans. Spencer has broken down Justin’s reserve and he finally learns the meaning of unselfish love.
But it’s too late, the hackers have captured them. Can Spencer maul the shins (and other choice areas) of his kidnappers and stop them?
Can a selfish man find a heart?
You bet, he just has to become a dog first

About the Author
I was born in Austria and my family immigrated to the U.S. when I was a child. I cherished living here but my family returned to Austria where I finished my education. I loved American Literature and always wanted to become a writer. I had to return to the U.S. since I missed the friendly faces and the cultivation of the free spirit which America symbolizes. When I became a U.S. citizen the writing bug bit me again. My new book, K-9 COP, is adapted from my award winning screenplay. This book has won several awards including first place in the 2009 National Good Read Competition sponsored by awomenswrite.com. Please visit my web site at http://www.k9cop-woofwoof.com

K-9 Cop is a charming story of a cop named Spencer who was too much of a jerk to be allowed into Heaven, but with the help of an angel, he is able to return to Earth as his K-9 companion Pepper. His mission: to help a poor boy, resently crippled, find his way out of depression, and reunite his family after his mother died some years earlier. Once he accomplishes these he will be allowed to enter Heaven. Justin, the boy Spencer must help, discovers Spencers true identity and offers to help the dog find his killers and put a stop to a crime ring, decades in the making. I truly enjoyed this book and the hillerious antics the character fell into, and the funny bits of justice the "bad guys were constantly falling into. The writing style kept the story moving and painted the scene so perfectlt that it would be difficult not to find yourself fully immersed in the action. One more round of proofreading, however, would have benefited the flow of the book. There were a few gramatical errors and there were gaps in the storyline that left me wondering how some questions were answered, or how a character reached a certain point. Despite these errors I still give the book 4 stars, and besides a few clumps of "colorful" language, I would recommend this book to preteen boys who are looking for some adventure.
This was an awesome break from all the super drama reads. I loved how light hearted and fun this book was! It had some fun action adventure thrown in to keep things interested. I found myself giggling at the imagery many times throughout the story. Just a fun story with some feel-good moments. Definite mood lifter :D
