I've just dug this out to read again - I'd always remembered the way Hutch trained his dogs (and there's no way mine are as well trained!!).
Stephen Leather has created a character that's been on the wrong side of the tracks and who is now trying to live a normal life - until his past catches up with him. I'm not going to give the plot away, but if you like your thriller characters with depth, emotion and mixed in with a lot of action, The Solitary Man is for you.
