I really enjoyed this Crais book. Some of his narrators for the Elvis books put me off but this I enjoyed. Story was good, narration was good, I'll check for more.
If you want to learn a little about dogs and listen to a good mystery, this is for you. I couldn't put it down. I just wish it was a little longer. I didn't want to see it end.
This was a good story about a broken military dog and a broken cop. Granted, the premise and the growing body count were pretty "out there," but the dog kept me in the story. I liked the way the cop and the dog started to grow together as a team...or "pack" in dog terms. That was probably the best part of the story and certainly overcame the weakness of the overall plot.
If you are a dog person, you will probably like the book.
I loved that it kept you guessing about who the actual bad guy was.
The author used the two characters, to heal each other. That is a lesson we can use in our lives.
The Seargent was awesome! I remember one just like him in Basic Training. Tough but fair.
When the Seargent entered the hospital room to talk to the nurse.
Listening to books is the way I separate from the stress of being an attorney. I enjoy fiction, mystery thrillers, an occasional romance, and books about cutting edge medicine and science. I was a History major so that is always interesting too.
Yes, I loved all of the details given about dogs in the police and military, oh and I AM a dog lover, so how could I not.
Usually, I can thing of one that stands out in a book, but this whole book was full of heartwarming memorable moments.
I never just read anymore, well almost never, but I'd say he brought another special kind of voice to life in this particular book.
As I said I found the whole book moving but particularly when Maggie out thought the humans.
Would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves and respects animals.
This was an easy listen, I couldn't put it down...or turn it off!! I lost sleep over this book! I love the connection and bond revealed between human and K9. I enjoyed MacLeod Andrews narration very much! If you have are familiar with Robert Crais, you must read!! If this is your first, you are in for a thrilling ride!
Never read the book - loved the audio edition!
Yes indeed! The plot was living emotion, it was so well written that I found my self driving further and slower (I listen to the audio while I drive) This was an intense novel.I was disappointed when I finished the book - definitely will purchase more by this writer.
Very tough question to answer There was Scott James the main human characterMaggie his K-9 partner (I liked her so much I wanted to buy a German Shepherd.And I know its strange but I really liked the tough K-9 Unit Sargent Dominique Leland
Yes, it was that captivating....
First book by this author - I was very impressed. Have looked for more to purchase.
Dog Lover's Must
When Maggie the dog explores her new home. We experience it from her point of view as a dog.
I believe this is the first thing I've listened to narrated by him. The narration is excellent. This book deserves to be listened to.
The scene in Afghanistan with the dog, Maggie. My eyes teared up!
This would make a fantastic movie! I hope it gets made someday.
Right up there.
Couldn't stop listening. Hooked all the way through.
MacLeod Andrews did a great job. Very good differentiation between characters; did as well with the female voices as with the male, and great with the doggie perspective. The performance added to the story.
I did listen to this in one day - kept stealing moments to continue. Very gripping.
I've enjoyed Robert Crais books in the past, but it had been a long time - years. After this one, I immediately downloaded three more. That's how much I enjoyed it!!
My first Robert Crais book and I enjoyed the dog-angle to the story. It was a unique way to solve a mystery. I actually learned some things about my own dog and why she behaves the way she does. The narrator's pace and voices were good. I only wish the main crime the book revolves around wasn't so cliche. Armored car heist? Really?
