Publisher's Summary

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.

"On The Hunt"

Would you listen to Lone Wolf again? Why?

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.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Meg's male partner, Brian, and of course all the dogs. I love all those wet noses, and their big K-9 hearts.

What does Angela Dawe bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

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.

Good story

Wonderful beginning to a new series

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.

DRY

Would you try another book from Sara Driscoll and/or Angela Dawe?

No

Has Lone Wolf turned you off from other books in this genre?

No, have read other authors accounts of search and rescue K-9's and enjoyed them

Any additional comments?

I'll pass on this series. Just too dry. Character development was sketchy at best. Read like a S.O.P manual for dog handlers. Wonder Woman with a Dog.

Full of cliches and stereotypes

If you or your family hail from Appalachia, I’d avoid this book. I think the author hit every cliche and stereotype except for cousin marriage. Additionally, I know everyone has to be a newbie on the job at one time or another, but it felt and read like a newbie writer/book. I was glad to be finished with it and I won’t continue the series.
