DOG$: First Warning

“You NEVER read a novel like DOG$ before.”

“Controversial fiction with new things to say about the way we live now.”

“The reinvention of the action novel.”


Four small-business men stumble on a jihadist strike in the making, and people start dying because political correctness dictates nobody in authority will help. Instead, the FBI goes after everyday citizens desperate to save Washington, D.C. from The Lash of Allah — bio-militarized agony — “unendurable pain infinitely prolonged.” 

“From its first sentence, DOG$ takes you by the throat.”


“A stuffed shirt in an empty suit” — Gavin McHugh Prestaen is a disgraced congressman who once might’ve been President. Now he is the laughing-stock landlord of Our Block’s rundown storefronts in Washington, D.C.

On Saturday night, this sweltering August weekend, his famous stage-actress mistress reignites their fond if unlikely love affair; and Gavin and three small-business owners stumble on a California-blond jihadist bio-militarizing 500 stolen dogs with The Lash of Allah — “unendurable pain infinitely prolonged.”

Worse yet, within hours, a rogue FBI agent decides Prestaen himself must be the terrorists’ mastermind. So now, caught between mad dogs and crazier feds, stopping tomorrow’s attack is up to four willing but unprepared civilian vigilantes caught off-balance during a nonstop weekend of shock, violence, bitter-sweet romance and creative beheadings.

In international award-winning screenwriter Herb Borkland’s cut-throat madhouse of a novel, Prestaen changes and grows overnight into a radical new kind of patriot whose desperate struggle to save the Nation’s Capital will end up branding him “the world’s most hated American.”

    Congratulations! I’m delighted you got this out in style. . . . Is there a visit planned to the pink room? We got decorated with enough snow to cancel school and nothing else
