I was not familiar with Robert Crais but I enjoy action thrillers and this is a very good one. I certainly was not disappointed and the book managed to hold my attention. I can recommend it.
As a person with dyslexia, audio books give me the opportunity to "read" wonderful books that I would otherwise miss. Thank you for this fabulous service.
What an interesting situation. I've read a lot of the "buddy cop" mysteries. One partner is usually damaged in some way while the other is the stable, reliable one. This was a different approach. Both partners are seriously damaged. Both have survived and have some survivor's guilt.
The relationship between the man and the dog is lovely to watch unfold. Both have trust issues. Those get resolved.
There are some weak points. This team seems to come together a little too quickly. They seem to have a little too much freedom. The case itself became a little predictable. But, all in all, it was a nice twist on a much-overused plot line. I hope there is not a sequel because a lot of the charm of it was the getting acquainted part.
Cop, dog, criminals.
Dog perspective brought tears to my eyes.
I knocked off one star because I was able to guess the plot, but loved the way the story was written. The telling of the tale, including what the police dog was thinking, was very much worth my time.
I loved the development of the personality of the dog and the relationship between her and her new master. I also liked Scott, whose personality was such that the relationship between him and the dog, and the resulting decisions he made, seem highly believable.
I can't decide if I preferred Scott or the dog! Maggie had real character and a genuine personality, albeit very doglike (the author only marginally anthropomorphized her.) I felt like the author really knows dogs.
No, but I enjoyed my listening sessions and looked forward to having time to tune it in.
The narrator did a very nice job of conveying the dog's thinking (of all things!) I also appreciated that his character development was such that I had no trouble keeping them sorted out.
The dog, Maggy talks and it believable. Maybe not the most enjoyable but added much.
I don't know, Everything that involves the dog.
This is a good book. It moves and it is exciting police story. About a man and his dog and there struggle with bodily harm and hurtful happenings in there lives.
heart warming and intense

I've always enjoyed Crais' books, his Elvis Cole and Joe Pike novels are just fun and entertaining. This book is a stand alone (although how many bets he brings back this character?). What's so fun about this book is Maggie, the dog, and how very attached you become to her and all the new respect you have for your own dog. My dog got lots of extra attention (as if she is every neglected!) while I was reading this. It's just thoroughly entertaining and interesting.
Exciting, keeps you engaged, makes you not want to put the book down, the love and faithfulness of the dogs.
The story is great, full of unexpected twists, and keeps you in suspense about what is happening next.
He is excellent with great voice inflection. It felt like someone telling me an interesting story story, it is more engaging.
Everyone is capable of love even in the toughest times. I appreciate how that is written into this story, with friends and animals.
Great read. Did not want to stop until the end.
