Fido The Assistance Dog by Patsy Collins

Patsy has crafted a very clever story with a bit of a twist on the personality of underworld types. Or as they are portrayed in noir stories I should say. The story follows a career criminal and his new pet dog, whom he uses to hide his real activity of scoping out potential targets. Fido is a rescue dog, and fiercely loyal to our anti-hero who is loyal in return, despite the original aims the relationship that builds is actually quite touching.

With an interesting twist at the ending, or a possible twist I should say as words can be taken in many ways and I’ll leave you to draw your own conclusions as to how the tale ends, Fido The Assistance Dog manages to draw a realised suburban world. Giving a noir take on what might otherwise be thought of as ‘cosy crime’ and reminding us that we never really know what is going on behind closed doors.
