Publisher's Summary

On a rugged Colorado mountain ridge, Mattie Cobb and her police-dog partner, Robo, make a grisly discovery - and become the targets of a ruthless killer.

Colorado's Redstone Ridge is a place of extraordinary beauty, but this rugged mountain wilderness harbors a horrifying secret. When a charred body is discovered in a shallow grave on the ridge, officer Mattie Cobb and her K-9 partner, Robo, are called in to spearhead the investigation. But this is no ordinary crime - and it soon becomes clear Mattie has a close personal connection to the dead man. 

Joined by local veterinarian, Cole Walker, the pair scours the mountaintop for evidence and makes another gruesome discovery: the skeletonized remains of two adults and a child. And then, the unthinkable happens. Could Mattie become the next victim in the murderer's deadly game? 

A deranged killer torments Mattie with a litany of dark secrets that call into question her very identity. As a towering blaze races across the ridge, Cole and Robo search desperately for her - but time is running out.

Wonderful book

If I could, I'd give more stars. Keeps you on a fast paced ride from the start. Every time you think the plot is ending it suddenly jerks you in a new and interesting direction. Can hardly wait for installment 3.I also like how author creates such character and personality with Robo. Not just a dog tossed into the pkot. An integral part of the story. His character is well developed. Really love this author and these characters.

Another great listen.

This was another fantastic book. Some books drag on and never seem to end, not true for the K9 series. I can't wait for the next book #5 please.

Fanatic Edition of the Timber Creek Series

Each new book Mizushima’s writing gets better and better. Wu’s narration was just as skillful as the previous books. I will without a doubt buy any audiobook by this pair. I absolutely love this series! If you’re not an animal lover with respect for small town life you might not enjoy this series as much but it’s still a darn good story.

Robo I Love you!

I love the Timber Creek K-9 series. I hope Margaret Mizushima keeps writing this awesome series forever. She does a great story without vulgar words or sex or over the top violence so if your like me and don’t like listening to soul harming content which a lot of writers seam to use now get this book and all the other Timber Creek K-9 books she has written.
