Review

"If the Devil Had a Dog, an explosive psychological thriller by talented writer T.K. Lukas, is like a bottle of very good brandy - smooth going down and deceptively addictive - it'll snare its readers and hold them captive until the very last page has been read. With a wonderful cast of supporting characters - both the two-legged kind and the four-legged variety - everything about If the Devil Had a Dog resonates. The plot is multi-layered with plenty of action and the writing is solid with engaging descriptions and quick-paced dialogue. Even the title of the book is different, but entirely apt once you begin reading. However, what really gives this book its teeth, if you will, are the two main protagonists themselves. Both Sidney and Markus are flawed and it's these flaws which give them vulnerability and make them so appealing to readers. Of course, it's these same character flaws which draw the two characters to each other and provide the undercurrent of sexual tension and mutual attraction for each other. It's also the author's innate ability to effortlessly expose, layer by layer, her characters' vulnerabilities as well as her seemingly effortless ability to describe her settings that set If the Devil Had a Dog head and shoulders above other books, in this humble reviewer's opinion. A highly recommended read!"
     A 5-Star Review by Marta Tandori for Readers' Favorite 

From the Author

Writing this novel, while sometimes an excruciating exercise in fortitude, was ultimately cathartic. I am closely acquainted with women who've found themselves in frighteningly similar circumstances as the heroine, Sidney. Fearing their partner's "till death do us part" vow, they've combated domestic violence, both mental and physical. These are smart women--strong women--women who got sucked into their abuser's sick world.
 
Though she's put through hell and her life is still in danger, my fictitious heroine flees her violent marriage. Sadly, in real life, many women haven't the means to escape. This story is not meant to be a blueprint for how every woman should handle her individual struggle. This is fiction based on fact. If you are in a domestic violence situation, please reach out for help. Though not a personal endorsement, a possible place to start might be genesisshelter.org or another such organization in your community.
 
Now, a word about the "hero." I use that term with immense pride and familiarity. The lead male character, Markus, is patterned after a few men I know, one quite personally. If you are acquainted with the quote attributed to George Orwell, you'll know my male lead character and understand his motives without further explanation: "People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf."
 
While Markus handles his PTSD in an atypical manner, those with PTSD can surely identify with his emotions and his decision to deal with his situation in his own way. Post Traumatic Stress is a very real and very serious mental health issue. If you are suffering, please don't carry the burden alone. Again, not an endorsement, but organizations such as The Wounded Warrior Project and their Warrior Care Network may provide helpful resources.
 
I'm hopeful that strong, smart women and courageous, rough men who find themselves in situations similar to those of my characters will gain a sense of strength and feel a shoulder of sympathy in the words of this novel.
 
Always faithful,
T.K. Lukas
