Stray Ally, by fellow Happily Ever Afterlife Anthology author, Troy Lambert is a great book for dog lovers, intrigue lovers, action lovers, book lovers, everyone…
A strange accident on the freeway, accusations of murder, and an encounter in the Idaho wilderness all propel Todd Clarke into a new friendship with a dog named Sparky. But Sparky is no ordinary dog, and there is more going on than Clarke could have imagined.
A military commander he investigated for Aryan activity and links to domestic terrorism is after him, and he’s not sure why until another chance encounter provides the answer.
With Sparky and the help of his canine friends, will he be able to figure out the Colonel’s plan and stop him in time? All Clarke knows for sure is none of it would be possible without the help of his Stray Ally.
I really enjoyed this book. I read it in just over a day, and I only put it down a few times when I absolutely had too. Mr. Lambert weaves a great back story into the characters present, showing us both the history that builds the situation and how it is resolved. Todd is ex military and has a very interesting past. Sparky is an incredible dog that both helps Todd deal with his PTSD and helps him survive the situation he finds himself in when his past walks into his present and tries to kill him. Sparky and a whole bunch of other amazing dogs are pivotal to the story and made me want to hug my own dog the entire time I read. It’s an entertaining thriller. You’ll be doing yourself a favor if you pick it up.
