Publisher's Summary

When a young girl is found dead in the mountains outside Timber Creek, lifelong resident Officer Mattie Cobb and her partner, K-9 police dog Robo, are assigned to the case that has rocked the small Colorado town.

With the help of Cole Walker, a local veterinarian and single father, Mattie and Robo must track down the truth before it claims another victim. But the more Mattie investigates, the more she realizes how many secrets her town holds. And the key may be Cole's daughter, who knows more than she's saying. The murder was just the beginning, and if Mattie isn't careful, she and Robo could be next.

Suspenseful and smart, Killing Trail is an explosive debut that will have listeners clamoring for more Mattie and Robo for years to come.

    "Exciting first book in new series"

    When I read the description and read the main characters were a female officer and a K9, I was intrigued. The story was very well written and the narration spot on. I highly recommend this book and hope to have a second in the series soon.

    Story
    "Fell in Love with Robo"

    When I saw that this was a debut novel, I had low expectations but couldn't resist a K-9 story. I was surprised and amazed how much I enjoyed the characters and the plot.

    Mattie was engaging, smart and extremely likable and of course Robo stole my heart. I am already looking forward to the next book.

    "Fun but a bit cliched"

    I enjoyed the novelty of a crime novel with a dog since I am a dog lover, but the book was quite full of stereotypes and cliches. Enjoyable but nothing spectacular.

    Story
    "Needs a stronger heroine"

    Good characters, but main character agonizes over everything and her lack of confidence is annoying and boring. Too many cliche situations (cell phone left in the car, flashlight batteries failing) make her seem stupid as well.

    Story
    "Really Enjoyed the book."
    What made the experience of listening to Killing Trail the most enjoyable?

    It was a good story line from the beginning. I did figure out early on who was behind the killings, but it was still a good story line.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I really appreciated the way the author kept to the story line, following up and finishing most of the points that this story brought out. I also appreciate the fact that the author left room for other story lines to be developed from this one thereby leaving room for a series of books to be developed.


    What about Nancy Wu’s performance did you like?

    Good narrator, very clear, voice reflections good, and even tone to her voice. No sing-song effect.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The callousness of young Tommy and Brenneman; the hiding of little Sean in the barrel; the shooting of a young girl in cold blood, just to name a few.


    Any additional comments?

    I am a sucker for animal stories especially when the good guy always catches the bad guy and puts an end to him.
