Publisher's Summary

Adam March is a self-made “Master of the Universe”. He has it all: the beautiful wife, the high-powered job, the glittering circle of friends. But there is a price to be paid for all these trappings, and the pressure is mounting—until the day Adam makes a fatal mistake. His assistant leaves him a message with three words: your sister called. What no one knows is that Adam’s sister has been missing for decades...that she represents the excruciatingly painful past he has left behind...and that her absence has secretly tormented him all these years. When his assistant brushes off his request for an explanation in favor of her more pressing personal call, Adam loses it. And all hell breaks loose.

Adam is escorted from the building. He loses his job. He loses his wife. He loses the life he’s worked so hard to achieve. He doesn’t believe it is possible to sink any lower when he is assigned to work in a soup kitchen as a form of community service.

But unbeknownst to Adam, this is where his life will intersect with Chance. Chance is a mixed breed Pit Bull. He’s been born and raised to fight and seldom leaves the dirty basement where he is kept between fights. But Chance is not a victim or a monster. It is Chance’s unique spirit that helps him escape and puts him in the path of Adam. What transpires is the story of one man, one dog, and how they save each other—in ways they never could have expected.

What the Critics Say

"Chance tells his story in his own words, which makes his mistreatment and return to the fighting pit powerfully disturbing. Combined with Wilson's unflinching portrayal of Adam's struggle to overcome his past, Old Yeller's got nothing on this very good man and his dog story." (Publishers Weekly)

    "A Good Dog Story"
    What disappointed you about One Good Dog?

    I was not disappointed in the least by this story--excellent story without all the graphic detail that could have been included. I'm very grateful it wasn't because it wasn't needed and would have taken away from the message of the story.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I love Sophie Kinsella and I want something a bit lighter so I'm going with one of her books!


    How could the performance have been better?

    Nothing could have been improved upon.


    What character would you cut from One Good Dog?

    Can't think of one.

    Would you consider the audio edition of One Good Dog to be better than the print version?

    I have never read the print version, however, this audio version is a suspenseful and enticing narative. I thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys a great story and mystery!

    The dog trainer.

    When the trainer gets outsmarted by the killer.

    Story
    "Slow to start, but a few smiles along the way"
    What did you love best about One Good Dog?

    It was a nice simple story with a clear message. It was the dogs view of the world that put the smiles on my face. Being a dog owner it was interesting to see how my dog might interperet the world she lives in.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I would have the say Chance, through the stories in books we come across many human characters, however, it is was different to have the feelings and emotions of an adault dog portrayed.

    "Wonderful listening experience."
    Would you listen to One Good Dog again? Why?

    Yes. It's a very touching story, true to life and worthy of a second listen.


    What did you like best about this story?

    True to life, believable and a nice ending.


    What does Fred Berman and Rick Adamson bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I loved having two voices. One for the human and one for the dog. It definately adds dimension.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep up the great work. Audible is fast becoming a my favorite companion. Right up there with my own dog.

    "Makes You Think About Your Priorities"

    This was an excellent story told in s most creative way. You enjoy meeting both main characters and sometimes debate who to root for. In the end, you reflect on your own set of priorities and what is important in life. Excellent read (listen).

    "One Good Story"

    I had a hard time with this story. I hate to hear stories of animals being abused. The first chapter was so tedious that I almost stopped the book, but I went on to the second and it got better. The narration of the dog telling his own story helped me through the parts of the dog fighting that I found so heartbreaking. This is one of those stories that, once you get started, it is hard to turn off. I cried, but I listened to the ending three times. A feel good book.
