Wolf on Goodreads
Johnny Wolfe carries his dog Sindra in a vial that he keeps in his pocket. He carries her out of loyalty. He carries her out of guilt. He carries her because there are no more dogs in this world. And he carries her to connect to her feral nature, so that he might take her inside himself and feel her animal wildness.
Johnny’s life is in shambles. His sales career at Bulldog Enterprises is on the blink. On his way to work one day he comes across a colleague who is killed by a dog. But with dogs now extinct, how is this possible? Going through his colleague’s dead body, Johnny discovers the colleague is carrying a rather sizeable sales order. Figuring “he’s dead, I’m not”, Johnny decides to place the order as his own.
Except he can’t figure out what product the colleague is selling. As he gets closer to understanding the product, Johnny starts to realize it has more and more to do with why the dogs might be returning, and why they’re so angry.
Then he starts to wonder if maybe the dogs know more about him and Sindra, and if maybe they’re angry with him.
It’s a great book. Very interesting plot. I couldn’t put it down. I love the twists and turns the book takes. It’s action packed and fast paced. We are introduced to Johnny as he is spying on his ex-wife and is confronted by a stranger asking about something he knows nothing about. The reader is taken along with him on his journey as he gets involved in several situations that he shouldn’t be involved in. He has to deal with his ex-wife as well and that makes for a very interesting outcome to everything going on around him because she’s a cop. Want to know what happens to them especially Johnny pick up a copy today. I recommend it to everyone. I look forward to reading more of Jim’s books.
