Hounds of Mercy
Brave Tsavo, the first Rhodesian Ridgeback hound, never really dies. The African nature god Shango blesses him with multiple lives, and he travels through time and space as a boon to the people he loves. Follow his heroic journey from battles with ferocious lions on the Dark Continent to his 9/11 disaster site search and rescue miracles. Watch him soften the hearts of weary soldiers at the Battle of Gettysburg and open the doors of perception for patients in the office of a famous Beverly Hiils psychiatrist.
Colorful African mythology and the literary freedom of magical realism have inspired Hounds of Mercy. Dog owners know that communication with their companion animals is no fantasy. When you finish reading “The Psychiatrist’s Hound,” take your own beloved canine for a walk and just ask, “What do you think happens in the story about Lockdown, the prison hound?”
