Editorial Reviews

The Power of the Dog throws shadows a mile long. Fearless, humane, aesthetically fervent, it’s also passionate, unapologetic, gorgeously written, and unquestionably authentic.” Dennis Lehane
“A pit bull of a book. Once unleashed, this thriller…charges and attacks without mercy, shredding anyone in its path.” Washington Post
“An express train of a thriller that cannot be put down…One of this year’s finest novels.” Baltimore Sun
“Ambitious, dense and gritty…Well-drawn characters and plenty of double-crossing make this a thinking person’s narco-thriller.” Publishers Weekly
“Porter captures the story’s intensity, deftly using inflection and pauses.” AudioFile
