It pairs an honest estate agent, Dave, with a talking dog, Reg. Dave can't lie and Reg can sniff out the truth about everyone - including Dave's girlfriend and his poker school enemies. The dog's an absolute scene stealer, with a hilarious 'Terry Thomas' tone and funny 4 foot high (4 footed?) outlook on the world. It's well plotted with great twists and turns.
I pre-ordered 'Lucky Dog' because I enjoyed Barrowcliffe's other books. Basically: I really recommend this book.
Well written, perceptive, great laugh out loud moments - buy it!
"'You're a hellooo' said the dog, 'like I'm a dog. Don't you know what you are?'. 'I'm a human I said'. 'We call you hellooos' said the dog. 'It's what you say every time you meet a dog'."
