I hope see more adventures of Scott and Maggie in the future. I love the points of view from Maggie during the story. The narrator MacLeod Andrews is fantastic! This book took you through all emotions seamlessly. Many thanks to Mr. Crais for bringing to light the unsung canine hero's of war and police work.
Yes. This wasn't my usual type of book but I enjoyed the story. While it was sobering at the beginning, the healing of the two main characters was very up lifting.
The progression of healing and forming a pack.
Maggie. Enjoyed her
Its in my top 5...I read the reviews and was concerned by some of the things people said...but I thoroughly enjoyed this!
so many to choose from.....Maggie protecting her dead handler.....Scott who keeps hearing his dead partner asking him not to leave her
While Maggie and Scott sound similar, the nuances he gives both characters is great
again so many, never did I believe I would be sobbing 10 minutes into a mystery!
I've enjoyed the Tara series by Rosenberg, but this is the first "dog" novel where the dog has been a character. I thought I was just buying a mystery from an author I enjoy reading, but simply was unable to put it down. Found myself taking long rides simply to listen to the next chapter. Great narator as well! Highest recommendation.
I laughter and cried, and held my breath... Could not put it down... One of the best stories I've ever read...inside the head of the dog and the man as they heal each other; plus a great crime story. These are characters that I will never forget...
RETIRED & LOVING IT.
I HAVE NEVER LISTENED TO HIS WORK BEFORE, IT WAS A THRILL RIDE.
THIS MAN KNOWS HOW TO WRITE!
VERY VIVID IMAGES TO THE MIND, MUCH LIKE A MOVIE.
I KNOW HAVE TO READ ALL OF HIS BOOKS. MY HUSBAND ALSO LOVED THIS BOOK IN LARGE PRINT. NOW WE ARE TRUE FANS.
Say something about yourself!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and especially love the character Maggie! This is a clever listen with interesting twists and turns. Crais has done some in-depth research on dogs which gave good insight into the world of working dogs. He says at one point how dogs like to be petted from head to tail because it is reminiscent of how they were treated by their mothers. I tried this with my own dog and the affect was pretty amazing!! This book is not just about Maggie - it's a good 'who done it' as well. Give it a try.
Yes it moves along quicker than I could read
the insight into animal mind, correct or not, is interesting
Great voice though didn't like the talk to dog voice a lot.
Love crosses borders
As a fan of non-stop action, I started to be a little disappointed when I saw where this book was going. In the end, it's a story about a man and his dog. But don't let that stop you. It's a great story, with a great plot, and has a great insight into the K-9 world and enough action and suspense to keep you going through till the end. Great novel! I'll be reading more from this author.
If you're a dog person and you also like a mystery, this one's for you. It takes off from page one and rarely slows down. The characters are real and flawed and doing the best they can. But Maggie the dog is the best part. I liked everything about this book, except ....it ended. I'd like to request a series including Maggie and her "pack" and her inner thoughts. I shared this with my husband and he just finished it today. He claims it's the best book he's listened to in a long time. So it should appeal to ALL genders .... even if you're secretly a cat person.
