    LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well, not since a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner, Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty - until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. The German shepherd survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before she lost her handler to an IED and sniper attack, and her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance.

    Story

    For anyone who has ever owned (or known) a German Shepherd Dog, they will understand when I say that this book is about 'pack'. The view of a dog about it's owner and it's environment is summed up brilliantly in this book about Maggie and her new handler Scott. Both of them suffer from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder or PTSD and this is a story that shows that obstacles can be got over with enough time and effort and love and affection. The way that Crais switches between Maggie, Scott's and other characters perspective adds another element to this story.

    This is a story I will listen to over and over, just because it makes me laugh and cry and love my dogs all the more.

    Robbed of his wife and ousted from his huge shipping empire, Nick Berg is hell-bent on vengeance. It is the sea that gives him his opportunity. When his arch-rival's luxury liner is trapped in the tempestuous Antarctic, Nick stakes all to pit his powerful salvage tug, the Warlock, in a desperate race against time and the elements.

    Unfortunately this recording is not so much abridged as butchered; the story that remains is disjointed, relationships between the characters become unclear, and the story stops just over half way through (in my printed copy there are 446 pages, the last events mentioned in the recording occur on page 234 - 47% of the original story ignored!)

    This was my fisrt abridged recording from Audible, from now on I'll be downloading only unabridged books!
