Аннотация к книге "Houndstooth" Gary Alan Ruse:
HOUNDSTOOTH set the stage for techno-thriller novels that would follow a decade or more later. It's the story of a special German Shepherd dog, ""Major,"" part of an Army dog handling experiment using a micro brain implant linked to computers and satellite relays to allow a remote handler to see what the dog is seeing and send him commands. Major is sent on an emergency spy mission deep into Russia.
The Philadelphia Inquirer praised HOUNDSTOOTH as ""one of those books that takes today's technology and carries it one giant leap forward....Michael Crichton writes books like these.""
Joseph Fanzone, Jr. of The Baltimore Sun said ""One thing that shows through in 'Houndstooth' is the care he's taken to research his subject thoroughly and present background to his readers. The plot is tightly constructed; it is reminiscent of an early 'Mission Impossible' script for its twists and turns and clever solutions. And there are characters who tense up and sound off and threaten the mission in credible ways.""
