“…superb character work…a mix of international thriller and family drama centered on a teenager’s fascination with an animal rights group in Italy.”
Kirkus Review

“Entertaining and eminently readable, Patsy Hand’s LOST DOGS OF ROME embraces her modern heroine’s growing self-awareness while weaving a story of love, regret and hope.”
— Chris Scofield, author of The Shark Curtain

“The unflinching exploration of a dysfunctional family serves as the backbone of this story, setting it apart from other works of suspense. Violence, death, and international adventure provide tension, uncertainty, and high-stakes drama.”
— The BookLife Prize
