In Dog We Trust

Unbelievable! Jeff Strand is truly a weird and talented writer. I cannot believe he made me actually sympathize with a sadistic serial killer. At the beginning of this book, Charlie is the most repulsive of human beings - a man who finds pleasure in causing pain to others and places no value on any life but his own. And, then came Kutter. I'm not sure someone as psychotic as Charlie could really let in the love of a dog, but I'm completely positive that there are plenty of dogs out there that could love Charlie even if most people couldn't. I also know for certain that if you let a dog love you, you can't help to be a better person. Charlie definitely becomes the guy who is trying "to be the person his dog thinks he is". Great story with great narration by Jack Clancy.

It's about the dog, not the serial killer


This is another heart warming story by Strand, who is quickly becoming one of my favorite writers. Do not be fooled by the first half hour and all the serial killer stuff. People who don't own dogs or love dogs will not get this, but those of us who love dogs, will see ourselves in the way this serial killer deals with his new found best friend. Strand pulled my heart strings in this story, as he did in BLISTER, the story about a woman with a scared face. He had me rolling on the floor with his book WOLF HUNT. I did not like DRACULAS, but I will blame that on the influence of Konrath and Crouch.

I would say, if you don't like dogs, you should get anything else Strand has written, but if you don't like dogs, you and I probably don't agree on much.
