Stray Dog provides an intriguing dissection of the mind of a hired killer in an amoral world where the powerful and greedy will eliminate any obstacle in their way.
Praise for Stray Dog
‘It takes a hell of a writer to draw you into the mind of a hired killer and make you want to stay there. Bentall makes Martin Decker's backstory so believable, his quest so moving, that you're caught up in the rhythms of that life—its breathless action and tangled plot, its quest for a rough justice. No schmaltz here; it's a dark and lonely book. But a deeply human one.’ - Jeannette Cooperman, author of A Circumstance of Blood
