The compelling sequel to A Dog Like Sam

Sam, the mysterious dog Kix met last summer, is now a part of the family. But Sam has been acting strange lately, and even Kix can't ignore the fact that his beloved dog is getting old. Still, Kix isn't worried--until the day Sam disappears and doesn't return.

As winter sets in, Kix becomes desperate to find Sam, so desperate that he decides to turn to an old enemy for help. Will they be able to rescue Sam before it's too late?

Edward van de Vendel once again delivers a deeply affecting story that will stay with readers long after they turn the final page.
