New Release: THE DOGCATCHER by Sean Patrick Carlin

Updated: Sep 20, 2023

DarkWinter Press is extremely proud to announce the release of Sean Patrick Carlin's debut novel The Dogcatcher!

This thrilling story begins when a trio of college students is savagely mauled on a hiking trail coming home from the bar. The next night, a pair of high-school sweethearts is stalked and massacred at a state park. Something monstrous lurks in the woods of Upstate New York, setting the idyllic Finger Lakes community of Cornault on edge.

Investigating the wildlife attacks is beleaguered Animal Control Officer Frank Antony. Misunderstood by his father, the mayor of Cornault, mistreated by his brother, chief of staff at City Hall, and mischaracterized as “the dogcatcher” by the newspaper’s op-ed columnist, Frank commands no one’s respect. Even his earnestly loyal sidekick, Animal Care Technician Steve “Waff” Pollywaffle, is too hopelessly irresponsible to ever be counted on.

Aided by world-weary forensic veterinarian Jessie Bartendale, Frank and Waff soon suspect the creature menacing their town is something far more horrifying than an ordinary wild animal... and the underestimated “dogcatcher” and his team might be the only ones who can stop it.

The Dogcatcher is now available on Amazon in both paperback and Kindle edition, just in time to make your fall spooky! Click The Dogcatcher to purchase now!
