REVIEWS FOR RED DOG RISING

“. . . a page turner that you won’t want to put down!”
Kat Albrecht, author of The Lost Pet Chronicles: Adventures of a K-9 Cop Turned Pet Detective and Dog Detectives: Train Your Dog to Find Lost Pets

“. . . . takes the reader on a thrill ride filled with suspense, action, and excitement as he recounts his own rollercoaster-like career as a law enforcement K-9 handler involved in some of this country’s most high profile fugitive searches with his beloved canine partner.”
Mark W. Holmes, police detective, K-9 handler, President/founder of United States Mantrailing Association.

"Great artists are also sometimes compelled in some way. I think they have some bug under their skin that won’t leave them alone, and have to get it out. Make no mistake, what Jeff described in this bond he haswith Ronin is an art. It is a consuming passion . . . and it is a joy to read about – in fact, I can’t say I have ever read anything like it.”
Jamie Hyneman, co-host, Mythbusters TV Series
