Started off good and continued good throughout the book. It was a good book about the relationship between a man and his dog. It also gave a good background on how a dog uses his sense of smell. I enjoyed the book all the way through. I don't like books with a lot of crude language - I found the language in this book appropriate for the content. The reader was easy to listen to and easy to understand. The difference in voices for the different characters was also good. I will be "reading" more books by this author.
When the POV shifted to the mind of the dog.
yes, as the dog part was unique
I loved this book, could not put it down. The characters are well written and you get pulled into their lives and the story. Loved the dog Maggie most of all. The story builds at a good pace, the story has a thrilling ending. The end is not given away. I am not an expert on service dogs but I learned a lot and the author seems to have do e his homework.
I teared up at some points and my heart raced at others.
Narrator was excellent.
One of the best books I have read/listened to in a long time, and I finish a book a week.
Hope this turns into a series, love the characters and where the story left off. I am guessing the author is a dogs lover from the way he writes about and describes Maggie. Dog peek are the best.
I recommend this book if you like police procedural, thrillers and dogs.
A gripping story I blasted through in two days out of insatiable greed. This author found a way to write from the dog, Maggie's point of view without sentimentality or manipulation. As a main character she is just as endearing as her Pack leader Scott. I loved this story.

I admit that I'm a dog lover, but this book has given me a new appreciation. of my own 12 yo terrier mix. Although satisfying, he mystery wasn't as gripping as the performance and the character development. The main character was a believably lovable asshole and his service dog's broken phsychy unfolded along with his recovery. Aspects of this novel were unique, as in a dog's narrative. I thoroughly enjoyed the adrenaline, mourning, and healing of the dog's personality.
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.
