doG Backwards

doG Backwards is Guy A Johnson’s debut novel.

‘Really liked! V interesting, gripping and unusual!’ – Sophie Hannah, bestselling author of ‘Little Face’ and ‘Kind of Cruel.’

doG Backwards is the story of six lives that come together through an unimaginable opportunity: to meet with the dead for just one hour.
Michael works in an office and is mourning the loss of his five-year-old daughter, Milly.
Barbara has her own cleaning company and the death of her stepfather, Eric, hangs heavy on her conscience.
Connor is ten and, despite having the love of his aunt and uncle, still misses his mother, who has been dead for over a year.
Liam lives in his big family home all by himself, where he hides from his past and yearns for the return of his mother, father and sister, all of whom are gone for good.
Shelley, friend and lover to Liam, also has her losses, but keeps these a secret from him.
Their reactions are very different. Michael’s is very positive: he simply cannot believe his luck. The others, however, do not react in the same way: Shelley is disgusted, Barbara cannot face making a decision and ten-year-old Connor simply doesn’t understand.
There are further complications. Michael has to consider his estranged wife, Susan: she has not been chosen for the program. Barbara discovers the experience is likely to leave her penniless. Connor has not only lost his mother, but also his father. So he is faced with a dilemma that no ten-year-old boy should ever have to face: which one to choose?
