Chase by Linwood Barclay

This international bestselling author serves up another genuine thriller with bite.




Chipper, a dog upgraded with the brain capacity of a ten year old child as part of a multi-million dollar experiment to create the ultimate canine spy, has escaped termination by breaking out of The Institute’s walls.

On the other side of the state, 12 year old orphan, Jeff Conroy is worked hard by his aunty and misses his own beloved dog.

Equipped with GPS, knowledge of public transport and carrying secrets capable of exposing The Institute’s entire operation, Chipper escapes to the country; meeting Jeff on his travels.

Jeff discovers that he is able to communicate with Chipper, and together they are pursued by The Institute’s most ruthless agent in this thrilling tale of two unexpected companions.

This is a great book, directed at young adults, but also a bit of fun for any adult with a taste for suspense and adventure, and of course it would appeal to any dog-lovers.
