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)

    "One Good Dog"

    I wasn't so sure that I would really enjoy this book, the description sounded a little contrived. I could not put the book down. Very well written and probably more true than we realize. Thanks

    "A little disappointing"

    I liked this book, then I didn't like this book, and then I liked it again. The story is pretty predictable. There are a lot of Cliches and trite comments throughout. I just about stopped reading it, and then at the end it sucked me in, and I ended up liking it. I actually cried at the end. Dog stories! They always get you where you live. I am giving it three stars because I totally think it is worth reading, but it is not all that well written. I mean, it has its moments where the writing is pretty good, but overall, I found it lacking. Also, there is way too much swearing for me. It is just soooo unnecessary. It is like this author says, "Well, no one will take me seriously if I don't put in a bunch of junky language, so here goes . . ." Boring!!! Word to wise and future authors: Don't add swear words just for the sake of adding swear words. It is unbecoming.

    There are two narrators, one who is the general narrator, and one who is the dog. Both were adequate, neither was just outstanding. I did not mind listening to them, but they were not compelling.

    Thank you for providing this excellent example of man's humanity to dog and how people can change their lives.

    "the art of racing in the rain..."

    comparisons are always going to be made between one good dog and the aforementioned book in the title.

    this was a very good book, but in my opinion the art of racing in the rain is much better.

    still a good listen though: well narrated and a good story. : )

    "Please research more"

    This story is an interesting, good story, however the telling of it is horrible. It is kind of offensive with bad language and ridiculous observations by the dog. By the way...a neutered dog can not still have sex with a "bitch". The author needs to develop characters better and stop trying to be shocking.
