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.
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.
This is a heartwarming and thrilling story, animated beautifully by the performance. It is rich in its details and the overall plot. It is fast paced and yet there is enough time to get to know the characters. Cannot wait for the next one in this series.
The police dog gave a fast reading crime mystery a new twist.
The dog of course, and maybe his hard nosed trainer at the Police Academy.
I loved learning about the training that goes into making a top notch police/military dog. It helps you appreciate their incredible intellegence and loyalty.
Great for animal lovers that also like crime mysteries.
I enjoyed the story not only because of the murder mystery but also because of the information about "Military/Police Service Dogs" and their training. The interaction and bond between man and dog was very touching and easy to relate to (being a dog lover). The mystery wasn't anything out of the ordinary, but good enough to keep your interest throughout. And don't worry, dog lovers, there's no depressing, Old Yeller ending to spoil it all!
