Being someone who is an animal lover, animal handler and also suffers from PTSD this book really grabbed my attention and shined from the beginning. I’ve read several books with “dog’s point of view” and while all are always enjoyable this one really shined on that level and as the two protagonists learn to trust and heal together I was riveted.
Unfortunately, it seems that somewhere about halfway through the book someone must have fired the original author and hired a hack to finish things up because starting with the “driveway scene” things immediately turned South and the original narrative was thrown out the window and a totally different story proceeded with no sense of the original themes and issues that were so fascinating and compelling. Lots of threads dropped on the floor and cardboard characters one could care little about.
Granted, I know nothing about the series or the author and chose the book purely on the rating and my love of the narrator… but it went from a 5 star to a 3 star by the time it was all over. A sequel that returns to the original narrative could help to resolve the problem.
Can’t recommend for or against… it’s a fine piece of pulp but could have been a masterpiece.
Dramatic, suspenseful, thrilling
The bond between Maggie and Scott- two wounded warriors.
This was my first book narrated by MacLeod Andrews. He gives an excellent performance, easily transitioning from character to character. He brings the characters to life.
this was a really great story. I really enjoyed the way that the author built in the relationship between the characters. Definitely worth a listen.
Love giving Maggie a voice. Scott & Maggie overcome a lot. can't wait for next book.
Suspect is a rather mundane police thriller. Not much exciting or clever. The one true value in the listen is getting to know the heroic police dog, Maggie. She makes it worth the time.

Keeps it interesting to the end. Too many people to keep up with. Good to have a story about man and dog, helping each other. Like the ending.
