Helen is a 10-year-old cocker spaniel found neglected and abandoned in a restaurant parking lot one rainy night. Despite her mangy condition and terrible smell, Ben and Eileen fall in love with the pitiful creature and decide to take her in. But just as Helen is rescued from a sad life on the streets and enveloped in a loving home with all the creature comforts an old dog could ask for, a tumor is discovered and she's given a devastating prognosis.

Oh my goodness, I am still listening to this book and feel as if there is no end! The writer goes on and on and on and on. Every movement, every gesture, every sound, every endless detail is documented causing the reader to be exasperated while waiting to find out what happened to the darn dog! An animal lover and reader of many stories about our furry friends, this comes under the category of a rambling with little to no plot.

No names. No Feds. No trace evidence. That's how Jonathan Grave operates. As a freelance specialist in covert rescues, he has to work outside the law to get things done - especially in highly sensitive hostage situations. But when an Indiana college student is abducted, and Jonathan's meticulous plan explodes into a deadly shooting spree, the local authorities are out for blood - and they're not alone. Someone wants to control a devastating secret...Someone rich and powerful.

  • Poor Narration

Good story; terrible narration.

Love Audible books, listening to 1 every week. However listening to this story is like watching grass grow. The English accent narrator is not suited for an action/adventure story. "We're going to kill you," comes across as "Let's meet for tea and crumpets, shall we?" I am a fan of John Gilstrap but in audio form is painfully tedious.
