Considered by many to be the world’s greatest bounty hunter, Duane “Dog” Chapman has become famous for capturing fugitives on Dog the Bounty Hunter, his number-one-rated show on A&E.

But his job doesn’t end when he cuffs his man—or woman.

Having personally struggled against abuse, addiction, and a life of crime, Dog knows a thing or two about the path that these fugitives cuffed in the back of his car are on—and he has a good idea of the bad news they’ll find at the end of it. As someone who has succeeded in beating the odds and finding a way to live on the right side of the law, Dog also knows what the person in the backseat needs to hear in order to straighten out his or her life.

This is your wake up call. You either answer it now or pay for it later and for the rest of your life. You’re being given another shot at things, but only if you take the risk to make the right decision. The choice is yours. What’s it going to be, brotha?

While he is himself a mentor to many, Dog draws strength from the great teachers in his own life to face the surprising and difficult challenges that have come his way. Through hard work, unflinching faith, and the acknowledgment of his own flaws—along with the overwhelming desire to fix those flaws—Dog has been through the fire again and again, and he’s come out the stronger for it.

Revealing, behind-the-scenes looks at Dog’s most significant challenges, along with seat-of-your-pants accounts of his most breakneck bounty hunting stories, makes Where Mercy Is Shown, Mercy Is Given a must-listen for any fan.

Listener Opinions

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Emily | 2/19/2014

    " I really enjoyed hearing his perspective on things and how he has overcome all of the struggles in his life but parts of it became extremely preachy. I think people who are looking for direction in life could benefit from his advice but I was a little bored at parts... "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kelley | 2/17/2014

    " The book is so amazing. I learn so much about dog he bounty hunter and his family "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chastity Hite | 2/2/2014

    " This book surprised me. I got the book as something to pass the time. I found that I was actually very impressed and touched by the book. It was a big surprise for me. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Lauren Doll | 1/30/2014

    " Love, love, love, love Dog the Bounty Hunter. A very interesting man whose past I was happy to learn about. I hope he writes more books about his current bounties because the TV show sometimes doesn't do his cases justice. Enjoy! "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Paula | 1/14/2014

    " I was disappointed with this book. I'm a fan of the show, and I went into reading this knowing that this wouldn't be a great work of fiction. What disappointed me was that the majority of the book was focused on his n-word scandal. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Hollie | 1/7/2014

    " Love the Bounty Hunter. The book is written just like he talks and acts on his show, Dog The Bounty Hunter. He gives a lot of insight into his life, his wife and children, and his philosophy on life. The Dog and his compassion for people are explained. All in all though, too many details about minute legal issues he has had his entire life. More stories about bounties and his life with his wives and children would have been more enjoyable for a die-hard Dog fan. Love you Dog. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Mckenzie | 1/5/2014

    " I was generally interested in the controversy about his show and I was surprised at what really happened (according to the Dog). I genuinely like the guy, and wouldn't turn down a dinner invitation (it would be one entertaining evening just watching another strange family!). "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Amber Cooley | 12/15/2013

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 David Cohen | 12/14/2013

    " He has some ideas that would be wonderful if they were applied to a prison system, but unfortunately, the jail system up here did it and they were sued by the ACLU for making the prisnors work! "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Robyn Obermeyer | 12/9/2013

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Katie | 10/16/2013

    " This was good. His first book was more interesting - full of information on his crazy life! This one is good, more current, but not as juicy! Good reading though! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jennifer Norman | 9/24/2013

    " Not even going to lie - I love his show, loved his books. Is it because he lives on the islands where I'd like to live again or because he's so mean yet nice to his crimimals? Or because his sons are kinda cute? Or because we all know Beth is the one holding it down? "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele | 8/13/2013

    " A very inspirational story "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Sandy | 2/1/2013

    " I didn't finish this book, which is unusual for me. I find his writing to be very self serving, and totally focused on himself..Kind of annoying actually. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Kim | 1/29/2013

    " Not as good as the first one but does deal with the racial conflict he was in. "
