REVIEW á eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB ´ Adrian J. Walker

T when an abandoned orphan shows up in the stairwell of their building Reg The Last eBook #194 and Lineker must brave the outside in order to save not only the child but themselve. This is a really good book At first it is funny and then it get dark It can be a little scary as in “could this really happen” I enjoyed the dog Lineker’s perspective on people and the world and his snarky foul mouthed attitude
