It’s no secret that Jack Ketchum is a huge animal lover. This novel addresses the cruelty of modern society, while tugging on the heart strings of dog lovers everywhere. When group of kids kill a man’s dog during an attempted robbery, he tries to find justice with the help of the law. This proves useless though, so he takes matters into his own hands, exacting revenge in the name of his dear lost friend, Red.
A tear jerker, for sure, this one is bound to get your animal lovin’ self all torn up, at the same time as feeding that urge for vengeance we all know is hanging out just under the surface.
