Adam March is a self-made "Master of the Universe." He has it all: the beautiful wife, the high-powered job, the glittering circle of friends. But there is a price to be paid for all these trappings, and the pressure is mountinguntil the day Adam makes a fatal mistake. His assistant leaves him a message with three words: your sister called. What no one knows is that Adam's sister has been missing for decades. That she represents the excruciatingly painful past he has left behind. And that her absence has secretly tormented him all these years. When his assistant brushes off his request for an explanation in favor of her more pressing personal call, Adam loses it. And all hell breaks loose.
Adam is escorted from the building. He loses his job. He loses his wife. He loses the life he's worked so hard to achieve. He doesn't believe it is possible to sink any lower when he is assigned to work in a soup kitchen as a form of community service. But unbeknownst to Adam, this is where his life will intersect with Chance.
Chance is a mixed breed Pit Bull. Hes been born and raised to fight and seldom leaves the dirty basement where he is kept between fights. But Chance is not a victim or a monster. It is Chances unique spirit that helps him escape and puts him in the path of Adam.
What transpires is the story of one man, one dog, and how they save each otherin ways they never could have expected.

"Combined with Wilson's unflinching portrayal of Adam's struggle to overcome his past, Old Yeller's got nothing on this very good man and his dog story." - Publishers Weekly
"It evokes both laughter and tears, but the ending assures you that humans and dogs are capable of redemption." - Library Journal
"An irresistible, if one-dimensional, cocktail of salvation and sentiment." - Kirkus Reviews
"Anybody who has ever loved a dog - or been 'a pack of two,' as Chance so aptly puts it - will love One Good Dog. This is the moving story of Adam March, a man who loses everything only to find something much greater, and it reminds us that it's animals that make us our most fully human. I hope Susan Wilson sits and stays - forever." - Lisa Scottoline
"Nowhere can we see the potential for our own redemption more clearly than in the eyes of our dog. Susan Wilson illustrates this truth poignantly and beautifully in this story of second chances." - Tami Hoag "One Good Dog shows how animals teach us everything about hope, healing, and unconditional love. One Good Dog is a terrific book that held me from beginning to end!"--Iris Johansen
