After their last deployment, when she got shot, her fiancé, Martinez, got killed, and his bomb-sniffing dog, Elvis, got depressed, soldier Mercy Carr and Elvis were both sent home, her late lover’s last words ringing in her ears: “Take care of my partner.” On the Fourth of July weekend, when all of Northshire celebrates with fun and frolic and fireworks, the dog alerts to explosives and they find a squalling baby abandoned near a shallow grave filled with what appear to be human bones.

I enjoyed this audiobook and the performance was ok. Narrator would have been better off to not try so many different inflections to represent the different characters. Kind of a weak point for me. The characters of Mercy and Elvis were well developed. Some of the side characters, such as the mother and baby, not so much. But, all in all, an entertaining story to pass the drive time home from work. I would recommend this audiobook.
