...until the day he finds an adorable Boston terrier and takes it home.
A 30,000-word novella from the Bram Stoker Award-nominated author of Pressure, Dweller, and Wolf Hunt.

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.

Very Dark Humor

If you are a fan of dark humor, Jeff Strand is your author. The main character is a very disturbed serial killer whose life is transformed by a cute little dog. Surprisingly, I ended up feeling sorry for him. The narrator was perfect. Give it a listen!
