Publisher's Summary

Aggie Malone is a dedicated young cop who has spent her entire life just looking for a place to call home. She never thought she'd find it in a quaint Florida village called Dogleg Island, where almost nothing ever happens.

Deputy Ryan Grady is an easygoing playboy who carries a surf board in the trunk of his patrol car and lives in the same rambling beach cottage his grandfather built 70 years ago. He grew up on Dogleg Island and can't imagine ever living anywhere else. It's always been the most peaceful place he has ever known.

Flash is a black and white, blue eyed border collie with amazing powers of perception, recollection, and deduction. He was born to be nothing more than a pampered family pet, however, and his skills might never have been uncovered.

A single night of blood and terror changed the lives of these three forever, and forged a bond between them that nothing will ever break. While each of them struggles to deal with the scars left by that night, they must also bring a killer to justice - a killer who is also stalking them. And only Flash knows who it is.

Can't wait for the next Flash audiobook for

It only took a few minutes of listening to Flash and I knew this was a special story. You feel connected to the people & place. The narrator sounds so genuine in how she tells the story, really brings them to life. Thank you Donna Ball for another great mystery. I really hope you continue with Flash, Aggie, Grady & the rest of group. Right up there with The Raine Stockton Mysteries.

fantastic story. great plot and character developm

the narrator sounded very similar in cadence and pitch to the Raine Stockton series narrator but this story was very different. I absolutely loved the excerpts about modern dog studies and dog facts. I also really loved that some parts are told from the dog's perspective. as a border collie caretaker myself, I chuckled frequently at the authenticity of border collie traits and behaviors. It's clear that the author is well acquainted with border collies herself. This is a fantastic new series and I'm looking forward to the next installment!

Absolutely wonderful storyline

The storyline is twisted as s grapevine. Great read. I accidentally read out of order and it didn't even matter. Love this series. Hoping book three comes soon.

Narrator spoils story

I started reading the book but my declining eyesight resulted in the need to purchase the audiobook. The narrator's voice is flat, dull and emotionless. She ruined the story.

A great book to read.

Would you listen to Flash again? Why?

I'd listen to Flash again. After reading I wish it was not over.

What other book might you compare Flash to and why?

I can't think of one.

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

Simmons was a great reader. She made it exciting.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

I felt several emotions, excitement, happiness, concern and a tear or two.

Any additional comments?

Worth reading.

I hope that she continues the series

Great book, Interesting information about Border Collies. like the location and the characters. The idea of having a bullet left in your brain is interesting and makes the story unusual.

Don't like the reader

I like the story a lot, especially the parts from Flashes perspective. But the reader is often sing songy and flat at others.

Good story. Loved the dog.

I really liked this book. It had heart, mystery, and an intelligent dog. Enough quirks to avoid formulaic. Fast. Good pacing and interesting plot. It's at the top of the "well above average mystery" category for me, and for the plot, although I have to say the writing did not distract from the story, which is a good thing. I bought the sequel and will read this series. Held my interest all the way through.
