Publisher's Summary

A Fascinating New Twist in the Post Apocalyptic Genre

"One of the best social commentaries of our time, wrapped in a whopping good tale."

"Can't believe it's a first effort! Very suspenseful! The thought that something so 'every day' and beloved could cause such chaos is chilling. I was actually frightened by the possibilities raised here and can see how something trivial can be twisted or corrupted to wreak havoc! Good job! Fiction or prediction of a possible future scenario? Scared me to think about it." – Laura L.

"I read a lot of books, mostly sci-fi or adventure. This is the best book I have read in a long time. The story is creative, original, and the more I hear about people in this world, the more I can see that it is possible and maybe probable and making me think strongly about stockpiling. The book was well written and leaving you wanting more. I will certainly read the next volume in this (hopefully) series. I give it 5 stars." – Illiad5

The twisted world of mainstream news and social media becomes the catalyst for social upheaval, entangling Steven Bryant in a frantic fight for the lives of his family and friends. A news story goes viral, causing their once normal lives to take a dangerous turn when a flawed medical research study suggesting man’s best friend might be his worst enemy.

Chaos erupts and a near total collapse of society looms in a perfect storm of government corruption, political correctness, and social justice movements. Steven unwittingly finds himself the leader of a struggle for survival as America's civil structure and social fabric is exposed as a house of cards. Sworn enemies become allies when faced with a common cause and friends and family members become bitter enemies as they confront hunger and widespread violence in a threat to their very survival.

Life will never be the same.

    "Politically fueled bad science"
    Any additional comments?

    Enjoyable, interesting, intriguing and entertaining.
    Unusual and original premise for the plot line.

    Political views enough to irritate just about everyone. And little snippets to offend everyone else. It depends on where you stand politically to how offended you may feel. The timeline for the story takes place in 2016 and there are several prominent names used and many that just by description you have a pretty good idea who the story is referring to.

    The story is based on the premise people will believe just about anything if it's packaged right. Considering how dependent people have become on social media this is not far from the truth. The sheep/herd mentality aspect of the story is completely believable. Throughout the story he does bring up many good points about the world we live in and makes you think about what you would do in a similar situation.

    A senator with Alzheimer's - that's a really scary thought.
    Pushing a particular political agenda- that's done all the time.

    Kevin Pierce did another great job with the narration. Great job on all the different characters. He has the perfect voice for this type of story. Kevin pierce is fast becoming on of my favorite narrators. There is just something about his voice, you can listen to him for hours on end. Even if your not into a book he keeps you listening.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this book and I am looking forward to reading more from Mr. Walker in the future.

    "Man's Best Friend is in Trouble!!"

    A good story, with man's best friend being blamed for cancer. The country quickly descends into panic as fear sets in.

    Kevin Pierce delivers a polished performance and makes this an interesting listen.

    "A different survivalist story"

    Talk about different... A survivalist situation caused by the possibility that dogs may be causing cancer. Wow! I didn't see that plot coming. I was a little skeptical at first, but when you think about it, it's not that unrealistic. This really could happen. Any dog lover will easily get sucked into the story. The politics got a little heavier than I like, but the story line moves quickly enough that I could ignore the politics.

    Kudos, as usual, to Kevin Pierce, for doing an excellent job on the narration. I would gladly listen to him read almost any book. .

    Story
    "The title is a bit of a misnomer"
    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the ways people were portrayed as working for their survival, some good and some bad. It seemed much more realistic than it is usually represented. I was also surprised at how preachy it was at times, but the author made very good points and there was much to make one consider the situations. The plague is more of a segue, or a reason to tell the rest of the story, which I kind of liked and kind of didn't.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin Pierce – was your favorite?

    The narrator had very good enunciation while flowing like a normal person. No particular character stood out to me as they were all done well. Occasionally, it was difficult to discern between the characters in a conversation, but that seems to be part of narration.

    Story
    "A enjoyable book filled with suspense"
    What did you love best about Canine Plague?

    There are a lot of books in the survivalist vein. Most center around a few story lines ; EMP/Virus/Terrorism/Economic collapse. This was different it centered around unfounded fear and the herd mentality


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Steven was my favorite. The reluctant hero that did the right thing even though it put himself and others at risk


    What about Kevin Pierce’s performance did you like?

    The narrator was and is one of my favorites. His voice fits the age and characters with good diction and emotion when needed. He adds a lot


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not really it is pretty long. I used the sleep timer and I listened to it for an hour before sleep. A great way to look forward to the next nights sleep!


    Any additional comments?

    If you like strong characters, a bit of social commentary and an overall the good guys win book this is a good one. I enjoyed it and will look forward to others by the author

    "Political Thriller"

    I did enjoy listening to the book but found it to be more of a military/politics apocalypse thriller than a medical thriller. The narrator did great job. It definitely was written recently with the characters mentioned. It is scary what our government could cause.
