Publisher's Summary

When a man careens off the road into the frigid waters of the Chautauqua River, Chief Detective David Wolf risks his own life to bring the man to shore. News of Wolf's bravery travels fast through the burgeoning ski town of Rocky Points, Colorado, and before long he's pulled into the political grinder, where candidates are eager to exploit Wolf's character for their own gain.

Injured as well in the process, it seems his heroic deed was some cruel twist of fate, that is, until he meets Lauren Coulter, a new girl in town and a nurse at the local hospital. Lauren is smart, beautiful, and just Wolf's type. The connection between them is there. But just as they get started, so does the killing. And as bodies start emerging, so do the secrets from Lauren's troubled past.

Has fate steered Wolf to the wrong woman? Or is someone more devious behind the wheel? Lives will depend on how fast Wolf can come up with the answer, and this time, living with failure will prove to be something much worse than death.

The situation is as the title says ...

DIRE is book #8 in the David Wolf series. Except for books 5&6 these can all be listened to as stand alone books. I prefer listening in order for the continuity in ongoing relationships.
This book begins with Wolf making an icy water rescue. While doing this he sprains his ankle. After being sent to the hospital, he meets a nurse who attracts his attention. The first woman since his ex wife.
She may not have issues but some of the people she knows do and that gets her five year old daughter kidnapped. The kidnappers take off with the little girl and the bodies start piling up. And the tension builds. This comes to a twisted end that was very unexpected.
Sean Patrick Hopkins does a great job narrating.
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this entire series.

A great listen

I enjoy Jeff Carson’s Wolf series. This book was a little weak on storyline. The narrator was brilliant and I enjoyed listening to his voice while on my dog walks.
