Maggie was a nice departure from the typical crime thriller character. The other characters were fine, just not anything unique or memorable. The book was a bit slow throughout.
The loyal German Shepherd, Maggie. Maggie had suffered the loss of her best friend just as Scott, the lead character, had dealt with a similar loss. Maggie, as expected, saved the day and was the ultimate hero.
The narrative was pretty well done although Scott's "dog praise" was too goofy for me to take seriously.
If the author chose to develop the characters more thoroughly then I might give him another try.
Not bad, not great and definitely better than I could do myself. Nothing memorable but I was intrigued just enough to keep listening. There were times that I wanted to return my purchase but the author did just enough to hold my attention.

I really enjoyed this book. I got hooked from the first paragr the raph and couldn't wait for the next chapter. Sure it's predictable but that never hurt Hollywood.
A good entertaining read.
Nothing too deep here. Not a lot of character development and the peak of the action is short-lived. Was just ok.
The relationships between Maggie and the men in her life.
Hard to pick just one, so it has to be Maggie and Scott
Great performance with the many different characters
I don't usually cry listening to books, but there were a couple of times that I cried with what was happening with Maggie.
The first book of the series and I have since read the second which is just as good.

This is a great audio book, and while the story does start with tragedy, it isn't a sad animal story at all. It's about overcoming and healing and moving on. But, basically it's a well written story, with great 3-D characters, an interesting, unpredictable and twisty plot with a bit of exciting action, and military and police procedures framing the events.
The dog part is very interesting for an animal person with all the bits about military and police training woven throughout the book. And, the point of view of the dog is not "humanized" but an interpretation of a dog's world view that is very possible.
The narrator is very good and does a wonderful job throughout.
This book was amazing. I love the way it was told from the point of view of the characters including Maggie the German Sheppard. I would recommend this to all.
i loved maggie's story- the details of her abilities- like, how precise and how much she can smell. plus, the way she related to scott, in the car or when she was afraid or happy. the author must of taken time to know how dogs will act. scott is young and ambitious at the beginning of the story. as the story progressed i liked him more and more as he was learning and changing. scott's youth or inexperience meant he made foolish mistakes, which provoked me a bit. but maggie helped him in several of those occasions. this is only one way that they make a great team. i hope to read many more stories with maggie and scott.
I loved this book! I am an animal lover to the point that I sometimes can't watch or even listen to anything where animals are hurt or killed. (Even Disney movies) So, I was almost afraid to listen to this book. I am so glad I did. It was a very good story with good characters and the performance was really good. I will most definitely look for more books by this author and narrator.
