Thought I was getting a Joe Pike/Elvis Cole adventure and was greatly suprised I got this book which turned out to be a lot of fun. Reader is great. Story about wounded cop and wounded military dog was a great idea. Story was a bit predictable and lead character seemed a bit to polite and nice to be real but it made you care about him. Try the book even if Noe and Elvis are not in it.
I have to admit that I'm a total Audible junkie. MUST have book going at all times. I may be the subject of a family intervention someday.
Maggie. I loved getting inside her head, her senses, her world.
Yes. Almost did.
Really really wonderful, would love to read a sequel. Will certainly check out the author's other titles.
Action, Romance & Suspense
The Entire Story !!
One of the best books I have every purchased on here & I have purchased a LOT of them !!
Avid reader (listener) and Audible Fan!
Love this story, the narration is perfection, and I could not stop listening. My first Robert Crais, but will not be my last! Am hoping for more stories of Maggie and Scott.
Definitely a book for dog lovers. The narrative point-of-view switches between characters, including Maggie, the ex-Marine dog. The interesting mystery plot carries the story forward, but this book is really a journey of healing and reconnecting, for both Maggie and her new handler, Scott.
The interaction between Scott and Maggie grew so completely. You could just see Maggie and her desire to love and protect. Scott tries and succeeds in letting Maggie know he loves her. What a great story. It keeps you guessing as to who the "bad guys" are.
In the beginning with Pete and Maggie. I learned so much about MWD's. What Heroes they are!
No this was my first experience with Mr. Andrews's writing, but it won't be the last!
Yes! I couldn't stop once I got started.
Get this book NOW!
This was an excellent book. It held my interest from beginning to end. MacLeod Andrews was great. It is definitely worth a credit. I loved how Maggie was a whole character. If you love dogs, you will especially like this book.
I am a miracle worker. Doing what I can to choose love over fear.
I hate to say where a title rank for two reasons:Different categories means different ways I as a reader may judge the book. When, I listen to a classic I judge each sentence in my head to see if I think it's both well written and read. Secondly, my mood might judge a book differently, if I am in a thriller-mood: Of course thrillers will get a higher rating.I am very picky about thrillers: They either need a heavy plot or characters I never forget. A good thriller makes me forget time while rasing my pulse. It takes me from joy to pain so intense I cry out in fear and sorrow. This book did that and more. Great crazy-work, a page turner sharper than a trigget with a heartbeat. It is laid Bruce by brick into perfection. The lenght perfect for this specific plot.
Even though the plots are different both "The bat" and "Political suecide" almost brought me the same joy last year. This was better.
He brings the Soul of Maggie the dog into your heart.
The Truth in Maggie's love throughout the book.
This book remains in your heart. Credit proof like few other relativly short modern thrillers of our busy time.
I LOVE books. And dogs & quilting & beading & volunteering.
And I am a dog lover. I was also glad to read other reviews from women who had tears in their eyes after the end of the prologue chapter. I teared up several times during this very smoothly written and performed story. I'll admit I fell for the anthropomorphic Maggie bits 100% and I usually try to avoid doing that but Crais pulled me in with his writing.
This is a story of bravery and love and it's done very nicely. I'm sure it will become a much loved story this year...I listened to it straight thru..It's 3AM and here I am blowing my nose and wiping the tears away.
This purchase is not my normal type of book. I downloaded the first chapter, still wasn't sure this was for me. I am glad I purchased this book. Really good writer I am unfamiliar with. Really interesting and compelling story. It got me on an emotional level so much I was almost afraid to listen to the end.
This is not a genre I will listen to all the time but every once in awhile.
