Faith. Trust. Triumph. “I’m sorry,” the doctor said. “He is permanently and totally blind. There is nothing we can do for him.” George and Sarah Hingson looked at each other, devastated. Their six-month-old son, Michael was a happy, strawberry blond baby boy, healthy and normal in every way except one. When the Hingsons switched on a light or made silly faces, Michael did not react. Ever. “My best suggestion is that you send him to a home for the blind,” the doctor continued. “He will never be able to do anything for himself.” Forty-seven years later, a yellow Labrador retriever puppy was born in the whelping unit of Guide Dogs for the Blind in San Rafael, California. The puppy’s name was Roselle. On September 11, 2001, she saved Michael’s life. This is Roselle’s story too. —From the Introduction Every moment in Michael Hingson’s and Roselle’s lives seemed to lead up to this day. When one of four hijacked planes flew into the World Trade Center’s north tower on September 11, 2001, Michael Hingson, a district sales manager for a data protection and network security systems company, was sitting down for a meeting. His guide dog, Roselle, was at his feet. Paired for twenty-one months, man and dog spent that time forging a bond of trust, much like police partners who trust their lives to each other. Michael couldn’t see a thing, but he could hear the sounds of shattering glass, falling debris, and terrified people flooding around him and Roselle. However, Roselle sat calmly beside him. In that moment, Michael chose to trust Roselle’s judgment and not to panic. They were a team. Thunder Dog is a story that will forever change your spirit and your perspective. It illuminates Hingson’s lifelong determination to achieve parity in a sighted world and how the rare trust between a man and his guide dog can inspire an unshakable faith in each one of us.

As “the new heir apparent to Tony Hillerman,”* Kirk Mitchell brings us back to Indian country with investigator for the Bureau of Indian Affairs Emmett Parker, “a great guy to keep around.” (New York Times Book Review) Badly wounded, Emmett Parker has come home. After thirteen years of assignments that took him to every Indian nation but his own, the veteran investigator has finally arrived in Oklahoma to heal. At once a son of the Nuhmuhnuh (“the People,” as the Comanche call themselves) and a government investigator, he has ties to both sides—and is about to discover which side pulls harder. On the reservation, Emmett finds a web of familial and tribal duties—and what could become a class action suit, with Indian plaintiffs suing the BIA for oil funds. Drawn into the controversy, Emmett is then accused of murder by an investigator of his own blood. And now, a man who used to be the law is running from it… *Midwest Book Review

Den elfte september 2001 kom att för alltid förändra hur världen ser ut. Bilder från det fruktansvärda terrorangreppet mot World Trade Center i New York strömmade ut i världen samtidigt som det pågick, men vad hände egentligen inne i byggnaden? Michael var blind sedan födseln och tillsammans med sin trogna ledarhund Roselle tog han sig genom vardagen. Den elfe september gick inget brandlarm. Det Michael däremot hörde var jättelika smällar som följdes av ljudet av krossat glas och skrik. Han såg inget, men han hörde. Tillsammans med Roselle tar sig Michael helskinnad genom det brinnande infernot. Detta är den spännande och otroliga berättelsen om en blind mans, och hans hunds, öde mitt i en av historiens mest tumultartade ögonblick ... Michael Hingson är en amerikansk konsult och offentlig talare. Han har varit blind sedan födseln och upplevde attacken mot World Trade Center på mycket nära håll. Susy Flory är en amerikansk författare. Utöver sitt litterära skrivande har hon även en bakgrund som journalist.
