The acclaimed author of The Honest Truth delivers his most emotionally powerful novel yet. Brodie was a good dog. And good dogs go to heaven. Except Brodie can't move on. Not just yet. As wonderful as his glimpse of the afterlife is, he can't forget the boy he left behind. The boy he loved, and who loved him in return. The boy who's still in danger. So Brodie breaks the rules of heaven. He returns to Earth as a spirit. With the help of two other lost souls -- lovable pitbull Tuck and surly housecat Patsy -- he is determined to find his boy and to save him. Even if it costs him paradise. Even if he loses his eternal soul. Because it's what a good dog would do.

"With charm and heart, Lincoln Hoppe narrates this story of a very good dog. Brodie comes to consciousness with no understanding of who or what he is. As he regains his memory of his life as the beloved pet of a child named Aiden, Brodie realizes that he must risk his place in heaven to protect his boy. Hoppe creates appealingly distinct voices for the animals who are the main characters in this story. You can practically see the pit bull's friendly grin and the disgruntled house cat's feline sneer. A pack of hellhounds, led by the terrifying Darkley, is genuinely creepy. Despite a sometimes dragging pace, Hoppe's commitment to the story's sincerity will have listeners rooting for Brodie and his friends. N.M. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
