A timely and provocative heart-pounding thriller, The Year Of The Dog unleashes terrorism’s worst nightmare: the Sleeping Dogs. It’s the Year of the Dog and China is on the offensive, solidifying its dominion throughout Asia and setting its sights on the rest of the planet. The Russian president intensifies his threat against the free peoples of Europe and beyond. Islamic terrorists continue to fan the flames of hatred and discord across the globe. The world’s baddest actors are ramping up their malevolent ambitions. And some of America’s most dangerous enemies are inside the Beltway. Meanwhile, America’s government, like a modern Nero, fiddles away the country’s treasure, seemingly too oblivious or incompetent to recognize the threat. The patriotic shadow government known as The Society of Adam Smith doesn’t have the benefit of unlimited human and financial resources. And time is running out. But it does have the one resource that no one else has—the world’s deadliest team of hunter-killers. The problem is to get them back together. Three of the six are in various prisons. One is focused relentlessly on avenging the deaths of his wife and sons. A fifth is struggling with a mid-life crisis at the bottom of a whiskey bottle. That leaves Brendan Whelan with one of the most difficult tasks he’s ever faced—reuniting the unwilling Sleeping Dogs and stopping the Free World’s enemies from destroying it. Sit down and buckle up! The hunter/killer Black Ops unit known as the Sleeping Dogs is back. But not all dogs make good pets—and the Hounds of Hell are about to be unleashed! Join the 1,000’s of readers who love techno-political thrillers and who are fans of those remarkable antiheroes, the Sleeping Dogs! If you enjoy mystery/espionage/political thrillers by such best-selling writers as Brad Thor, Lee Child, David Baldacci, Vince Flynn, Ben Coes, Brad Taylor, and Alex Berenson, The Year of the Dog is for you.

When her husband dumps her for an old girlfriend and sets all of Peachland, South Carolina, gossiping, Janey Daniels has to get away—far away—for a "sabbatical" year. She flees to Burlington, Vermont, home of Aunt May, her mother's only living relative. There she adopts Beulah, a Labrador puppy in training to become a companion dog for the blind. Not for a moment does Janey suspect that this "year of the dog" will change her life forever. Shelby Hearon is an acknowledged master at illuminating the nuances of relationships. In Year of the Dog, she explores the surprising ways that the heart heals after a betrayal. While Janey is training Beulah, Beulah leads Janey to a new love, James Maarten, a smart, "fidgety" teacher they meet at the dog park. As Janey soon discovers, James has suffered a betrayal of his own that makes it hard for him to open up and trust her with even the smallest details of his past. While Janey tries to help James, she also reaches out to her enigmatic Aunt May, a retired librarian reputed to be the friend, perhaps even the lover, of popular mystery writer Bert Greenwood. When Janey attempts to solve the twin mysteries of why her great aunt has distanced herself from the family—and what her true relationship is with Bert Greenwood—Beulah provides the clues that lead Janey to uncover the secrets of her aunt's life. By the time Beulah's stay with Janey comes to an end, the people whose lives she's linked will discover that healing and reconciliation can come in the most unexpected ways.
