Douglas K Pearson taught inside Michigan's 'Punk Prison,' the stat S Level 5 maximum-security prison for teenagers charged as adults, an experience that fed into the sociopathic currents of this novel. But it was his work as an American literature teacher at a Christian high school that best exposed him to the cruelty of the human heart, as well as humanity's ability to find redemption in the darkest places.

"’Day of the Dog’ is not a book about healing or an attempt to redeem injustice through violence. Rather, it is a journey into the uncharted heart—the heart of all humankind—and the deceptive and mysterious darkness in all of us that yearns to be known."
— Ann Byle,
author of "The Making of a Christian Bestseller."
