In the first book in a thrilling new series, FBI Special Agent Meg Jennings and Hawk, her loyal search-and-rescue Labrador, must race against time as they zero in on one of the deadliest killers in the country....
Meg and Hawk are part of the FBI's elite K-9 unit. Hawk can sniff out bodies anywhere - living or dead - whether it's tracking a criminal or finding a missing person. When a bomb rips apart a government building on the National Mall in Washington, D.C., it takes all of the team's extensive search-and-rescue training to locate and save the workers and visitors buried beneath the rubble.
But even as the duo are hailed as heroes, a mad bomber remains at large, striking terror across the Eastern seaboard in a ruthless pursuit of retribution. As more bombs are detonated and the body count escalates, Meg and Hawk are brought in to a task force dedicated to stopping the unseen killer. But when the attacks spiral wide and any number of locations could be the next target, it will come down to a battle of wits and survival skills between Meg, Hawk, and the bomber they're tracking to rescue a nation from the brink of chaos.

I am a long haul owner operator truck driver, listening to audio books has been a salvation for me.
story moves along fairly well, I'm a sucker for a book with dogs in it, especially search and rescue dogs. narrator does a good job.
Sara Driscoll has written a wonderful story to begin a new series. She has crafted great characters that are believable and likable. I look forward to the next installment in this series.
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
This was an adventure and a start to a series, if author can make the chase more dramatic, and have our K-9 sweethearts be even more of the lead, and this is not easy to do. The 2 male leads will be interesting to watch. Our ace reporter, and our firefighter hunk. Both men are YUM in there own way.
Check out Robert Crais's Suspect for a great K-9 experience.
Meg's male partner, Brian, and of course all the dogs. I love all those wet noses, and their big K-9 hearts.
Ms Dawe is a fave of mine, I own 100 of her reads, and purchased this author due to Ms Dawe as the reader. She has improved her pace, pauses, and cadences 100 %. She has a great male voice and lends character to minor roles. Check out Ann Wilson's Hover, fantastic!
note: I do use the new 1.25x speed to match the author's intent.
