Publisher's Summary

Ryder Creed rescues abandoned dogs and turns them into heroes. But this time, it’s Creed who may need rescuing when a madman leads him and agent Maggie O’Dell on a gut-wrenching scavenger hunt.

Sixteen years ago, Ryder Creed’s sister, Brodie, vanished from an interstate rest stop. She was only 11, and Creed was 14. Her disappearance ripped apart his family and has haunted Creed.

Now a former Marine with his own scars, Creed has dedicated his life to his K-9 business. He takes discarded and abandoned dogs and trains them for scent detection. Together they search for the lost and the missing. Throughout, Creed has always held onto the hope one day he might find out what happened to his sister.

A thousand miles away during a police raid, FBI agent Maggie O'Dell stumbles upon a clue that may explain what happened to Brodie Creed all those years ago. But to find the answers, she’ll need to make a deal with a madman. The search that follows will be as agonizing for Creed as the answers he discovers.

Sorry I waited so long to get this one!

I’ve read all of the Maggie O’Dell and Creed series, enthralled with the way Kava weaves a story that keeps you on the edge of your seat. This entry in the Creed series gives the reader some satisfying conclusions to lingering story lines and introduces new ones that will hook you into the next in the series.

While I find some of the books so technical that I wish I had a hard copy to refer back to, this entry was easy to follow in the audio format. A big bonus for me was that this installment featured a crime scene in my hometown of Omaha. I enjoyed the local references.

If you’ve been with Maggie from the beginning, you won’t be disappointed.

This book is good for anyone who 1.) likes dogs 2.) likes mysteries 3.) likes good writing 4.) likes a good story 5.) likes a series where the story continues from book to book. I feel like the story never ends. Can’t wait for the next book!!

Is this Abridged?

I really do like this series but this latest installment feels like it is an abridged version. The pieces to tell the story are all there but just barely. There is no richness or depth to the story. There is a brief introduction with Ryder's mother in FL that could have been developed more, there could have been more regarding the missing girl, there could and should have been more about the sabotage events (can't say more or I will spoil things), and the scene toward the end with the raid and sheriff - way too fast and 'convenient'. . I don't know if the author was in a hurry to get a book out, didn't want to invest time in filling in details and adding depth .. but this story was sold short. Lost Creed could have been 5 stars because the potential was there ... I was disappointed. Still a good story just not done as well as it could have been.

Easy Listening

Good at following story lines established in earlier books. Points of view could become complicated but did not impede the story trajectory. Satisfying read.

Captivating!

A strong multi-faceted story. My mind was engaged from start to finish. Alex Kava handles a dark topic with respect and class. I love a story that I can hate the bad guy and cheer for the good guy while juggling anticipation... since life (and characters) don't always turn out like you expect!
