Dog Eat Dog Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of Dog Eat Dog

Troy Cameron is a sharp, commited criminal finishing a fifteen-year sentence in San Quentin. Once he's out he connects with his friend and crime partner Diesel Carson, a heavily-muscled thug on the San Francisco mob's payroll who's losing interest in his wife and child, and is eager to join in Cameron's plan to rob drug dealers and pimps, people who can't go to the cops when hit. The two men connect with Mad Dog McCain, a schizo to whom Troy feels indebted for past favors. Their hit on a South-Central drug dealer is successful. Elated after this first victory they agree to do a contract killing for a friend of Troy, in spite of their prison records, California's 'three strikes' law hanging over their heards, and Mad Dog's increasing mental unstability stretching the risk factor.
