Stray Ally

The Dog Complex Book #1

Re-Edited and Re-Released: A strange accident on the freeway, accusations of murder, and an encounter in the Idaho wilderness all propel Todd Clarke, not exactly one of the good guys, into a new friendship with a dog named Sparky in this canine military thriller. But Sparky is no ordinary dog, and there is more going on than Clarke could have imagined.

A military commander he investigated for Aryan activity and links to domestic terrorism is after him, and he’s not sure why until another chance encounter provides the answer.

With Sparky and the help of his canine friends, will he be able to figure out the Colonel’s plan and stop him in time? All Clarke knows for sure is none of it would be possible without the help of his Stray Ally.

- Allan Leverone, Bestselling author of the Trace Tanner Series, Review of Stray Ally



WONDERFUL! I enjoyed every word in this book. Troy has a fantastic sense of where and when detail is needed and where to let the readers mind fill in the blanks. The story was chilling and not one I would recommend for night time. I loved the way Typewriter’s ending was left. what a wonder for the brain.
