A Dog’s Promise: A Dog’s Purpose Novel

Fans of Cameron’s previous dog stories (A Dog’s Purpose and A Dog’s Journey, both made into films) will enjoy the further adventures of these wonderful animals and their people. Newcomers will also be charmed by a farm family’s story told from a canine perspective. [See Prepub Alert, 4/15/19.]

Tracking Game

This is a compelling and twisty mystery in a well-described location. Fans of Western mysteries as well as those featuring dogs will enjoy this latest entry in the series.


Bark of Night

Fans of the series will enjoy this latest installment, and newcomers won’t be put off since not too much prior information is required to jump in. One shortcoming of the book is that Truman, the catalyst for the whole plot, is whisked offstage to the Tara Foundation, Carpenters’ dog-rescue center, until his happy ending. [See Prepub Alert, 1/7/19.]

Bite Club

Fans of the series will enjoy this outing, and newcomers will find a satisfying mystery and plenty of canine content, including behind-the-scenes secrets of dog shows, which will make them seek further volumes about Melanie and her pack of poodles.


The Body in the Castle Well

This will satisfy fans of the series, and also those who enjoy intricate mysteries in unique settings with plenty of local details.

A Boy and His Dog at the End of the World

Less violent than Harlan Ellison's classic A Boy and His Dog or Adrian Walker's more recent The Last Dog on Earth, this latest by Fletcher (The Oversight) still provides plenty of excitement and danger in a well-developed posthuman world that isn't quite devoid of hope (or dogs) yet.

The Last Dog on Earth

Fans of both dog tales and postapocalyptic fiction will flock to this latest from Walker (The End of the World Running Club). Lineker's vulgar matter-of-factness lends the perfect tone to this near future when politics has led folks further astray.

A Dog Called Jack

This new title from Pembroke (A Wedding on Christmas Street) will appeal to fans of light fiction and the cable channel movies popular around the time of the story's climax.


With its breadth of contributors, this latest volume in the publisher's city noir series will satisfy both the fan of contemporary African fiction and the newcomer interested in discovering some new voices.
