Book cover

The Day of the Dog by Anderson Horne is a gripping and intense thriller that keeps readers on the edge of their seats from start to finish. The story follows a renowned detective, John Reynolds, who finds himself entangled in a dangerous game of cat and mouse with a notorious serial killer known as The Dog.

Horne's writing style is both captivating and gritty, making it easy for readers to immerse themselves in the dark and chilling world of the story. The narrative is fast-paced and filled with unexpected twists and turns, ensuring that there is never a dull moment.

The character development in this novel is exceptional. John Reynolds is an instantly likable protagonist with a troubled past, which adds depth and complexity to his character. His determination and intellect are commendable, as he tirelessly hunts down The Dog, risking everything he holds dear.

One aspect that truly stands out in The Day of the Dog is Horne's ability to create an atmosphere of fear and suspense.

Despite this minor flaw, The Day of the Dog is a must-read for fans of the crime and thriller genre. Anderson Horne has crafted an engaging story with complex characters, a riveting plot, and an atmosphere that will make readers second-guess every shadow they see.
