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.

“What Mr. Rogers was to children, Alexandra Horowitz is to dogs: a wise and patient observer who seeks to intimately know a creature... Her chapters, packed with close observations about canine cognition and behavior, are mini-mood lifters." —NPR, Maureen Corrigan on Fresh Air What is it like to be a puppy? Author of the classic Inside of a Dog, Alexandra Horowitz tries to find out, spending a year scrutinizing her puppy’s daily existence and poring over the science of early dog development Few of us meet our dogs at Day One. The dog who will, eventually, become an integral part of our family, our constant companion and best friend, is born without us into a family of her own. A puppy's critical early development into the dog we come to know is usually missed entirely. Dog researcher Alexandra Horowitz aimed to change that with her family's new pup, Quiddity (Quid). In this scientific memoir, she charts Quid's growth from wee grub to boisterous sprite, from her birth to her first birthday. Horowitz follows Quid's first weeks with her mother and ten roly-poly littermates, and then each week after the puppy joins her household of three humans, two large dogs, and a wary cat. She documents the social and cognitive milestones that so many of us miss in our puppies' lives, when caught up in the housetraining and behavioral training that easily overwhelms the first months of a dog's life with a new family. In focusing on training a dog to behave, we mostly miss the radical development of a puppy into themselves—through the equivalent of infancy, childhood, young adolescence, and teenager-hood. By slowing down to observe Quid from week to week, The Year of the Puppy makes new sense of a dog's behavior in a way that is missed when the focus is only on training. Horowitz keeps a lens on the puppy's point of view—how they (begin to) see and smell the world, make meaning of it, and become an individual personality. She's there when the puppies first open their eyes, first start to recognize one another and learn about cats, sheep, and people; she sees them from their first play bows to puberty. Horowitz also draws from the ample research in the fields of dog and human development to draw analogies between a dog's first year and the growing child—and to note where they diverge. The Year of the Puppy is indispensable for anyone navigating their way through the frustrating, amusing, and ultimately delightful first year of a puppy’s life.
