It goes to show how much I liked this book that I would give it 5 stars with so many errors. Any other story would only get 3. Let's hope it is corrected and a new version will become available.
Lost Dog is full of deeply drawn and sympathetic characters. There's not a cardboard one in the bunch. And as other reviewers have said here, even the killer, as demented as he is, is seen as tragic and sympathetic.
Bravo to Bill Cameron for creating such a readable and compelling book.
Robert Fate, author of Baby Shark
Cameron gets us to buy a string of coincidences that seem just implausible enough to really have happened. And there's a romance subplot in which neither character, even wearing makeup and heavily airbrushed, would make it into a Harlequin.
I'm being vague so as not to spoil it for you, but Cameron renders the climactic scene in an unconventional, unexpected, deeply felt and subtle way.
There are authors on the bestseller racks -- including one Robert Parker mentioned within the text of the book -- who should retire and make way for fresh, new voices of a more emotionally in-touch generation. Writers like Bill Cameron.
