Publisher's Summary

Ryder Creed and his dogs have been making national headlines. They've intercepted several major drug stashes being smuggled through Atlanta's airport. But their newfound celebrity has also garnered some unwanted attention. When Creed and one of his dogs are called in to search a commercial fishing vessel, they discover a secret compartment. But the Colombian cartel's latest shipment isn't drugs. This time, its cargo is human. To make matters worse, Creed helps one of the cartel's drug mules escape - a 14-year-old girl who reminds him of his younger sister who disappeared 15 years ago. Meanwhile, FBI agent Maggie O'Dell is investigating a series of murders - the victims tortured, killed, and dumped in the Potomac River. She suspects it's the work of a cunning and brutal assassin, but her politically motivated boss has been putting up roadblocks. By the time she uncovers a hit list with Creed's name on it, it might be too late. The cartel has already sent someone to destroy Creed and everyone close to him. But Creed and his dogs have a few surprises in store on their compound in Florida. Will it be enough to stop a ruthless cartel determined to remove the thorn in its side once and for all?

    "Ok - Not for me"

    This was just ok. I like the relationship Creed had with all his dogs. He truly understood them. Creed was a man who was still suffering his demons about the war. The dog were strays who suffered some trauma. Creed was able to ease the tormented dogs and in turn they helped Creek stay connected with his humanity. There was a strong sense of loyalty between Creed and his dogs.

    I enjoyed listening to Creed and Grace when they were working. Grace is this cute little Russell Terrier with a high intelligence and an excellent tracker. The author was able to give the dogs such personalities that was true to their breeds. I knew I found a flaw in the book when it describe a Russell Terrier as a tracker. So I research it and learned something new. That is something I like. It was emotional for me when Grace discovered the kids. That little boy... he had my heart.

    I normally have at least two stories going at the same time. After I finished the other book, I did not feel the desire to finish this one. One thing that did happen was there was not enough action. I might finish it one day just to see how the crime is solved, but unfortunately, I just lost interest.

    "I guess I am a sucker"

    For books that have animals play a key role - this is probably a 4 to 4.5 star book for most - butat least gets close to a five if you love animals

    "Good and bad book and listen.."

    OMG! Did we have to go through the revolting, disgusting, gross, description of the floater that was found in the river? I just kept swiping the pages of my iPad to get away from it and the description kept showing up. If you have a weak stomach you won’t like that part. You might want to skip the first few pages of chapter 11.

    As interesting as this story was I don’t think I could read anything else by this author. Spiders, scorpions, poisonous snakes, fire ants and cockroaches. Now, I like stories about killers but I draw the line at one disgusting bug, arachnid, or whatever, after another. Stab him, shoot him, strangle him, whatever, but bugs and other creepy things crawling all over just gives me the creeps. Jeez, Maggie had 12 scorpion stings all over her. Yuck! One corpse had been laid out on a mountain of fire ants. One corpse had a mouthful of cockroaches. Good grief! I was having a hard time finishing this book.

    Then came the end, when all those bad guys came after Ryder. That part was soooo good. When he put all his dogs to work. And only 1 shot was fired. It was really good. But not good enough to get over all those bugs and things. From about 80% on it was a really good book.

    There was no romance in this book and only a little bit of swearing.

    As to the narrator: He was perfect with the voices, both the males and the females but there were no emotions at all. However, I would still listen to Graham Winton again because each and every voice was different, and that takes talent.

    "Another winning series"

    Alex Kava has written another great mystery/thriller. I do believe this book could be just the beginning of a new series. Ryder Creed is a character quite different from Kava's Maggie O'Dell. I do love the idea of having a new series involving dogs as the main character, not just in the background. Graham Winston did a wonderful job narrating. Ms Kava keep writing your interesting stories and I will keep on listening. I recommend this book to those who are interested in mysteries/thrillers, especially dog lovers.

    "More Dogs - Less Gore"

    I was hoping Breaking Creed would be more about search dogs and less about blood, gore, guts and torture. Unfortunately, I was disappointed.

    Ryder Creed could have been an engrossing character, hunky warrior turned dog trainer. I just felt his character (as well as his employees) wasn't explained or developed. There was lots of action, with more time spent on describing torture than personalities.

    Also, I couldn't tell if this book was part of the series about Maggie O'Dell, a federal agent. She popped up in the story with little explanation, as if the readers should know her back story. It almost seemed like chapters where missing...
