Jim brings his experience in the Marine Corps, the 1962 October Missile Crisis, and the Bay of Pigs fiasco, into play in this mystery thriller. He appreciates Dobermans as much as the Marines did in WWII and loves the breed. He has lived in the area where the story is written.
Mr. Cannon enjoys writing historical fiction from a "history of conflict" perspective (as contrasted to concensus history found in textbooks for children). His first book, The War on Mexico, opens the reader's mind to the nativist, anti-Catholic, anti-Irish, undercurrents in the war and the deliberate provocations of President Polk to take Alta California.
The Unfaithful Doberman explores the bonds between a family and its dog, multiple loyalties, and the effects of training. Personal experiences dominate the story as truth strains credulity.
