Publisher's Summary

Detective Michael Gideon is used to being handed L.A.'s oddest cases, but his newest one assigned itself. When Gideon's K-9 partner, Sirius, rescues a lost dog from a pack of coyotes, the duo tries to return her home - only to discover her owner is missing.

Heather Moreland has clearly disappeared under suspicious circumstances, and the more Gideon digs into her past, the more he's convinced of her abduction.

As Gideon strives to help the missing woman, he is also troubled by the suspicious death of Detective Langston Walker, the leader of a support group for families of murder victims. The last time they'd met, Walker told Gideon about a cold case he had reopened, making Gideon wonder if the detective's demise is the accident everyone believes.

In this third book in Alan Russell's gripping cop-K-9 series, Gideon and Sirius race to save a young woman - and stop another killer from striking again.

Good Man/Dog suspence series

Any additional comments?


I have really enjoyed the Gideon and Sirius series so far. Alan Russell has set his own bar quite high with the first two books. This is the third and although I enjoyed it very much, I must say that I found the first two a little more suspenseful. I found this one to be slightly predictable.
The premise of the story is good and again it is suspenseful. A young woman recently filing for a divorce from an abusive husband is abducted. One year earlier she had adopted a severely abused dog who trusted no one. It took months but finally there is a breakthrough and they become inseparable. Now she's been abducted.
Ready? What kind of dog is it? It's a bloodhound mix!
Anyway, there's a good story here and other things going on. Very entertaining and recommended. I do HIGHLY RECOMMENDED the series.
Books don't have to be read/listened to in order but better that way, I think.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so. Thank You.

Lost dog

Great idea spoiled by cringe/poor attempt at humour in narrative.
No sense of pace or creating suspence

An enjoyable book.

Any additional comments?

This was actually a pretty enjoyable book. This is the third book in a series of three. I read Book 1. I probably won't read Book 2. The author's writing style includes lots of bad jokes and cliches and too many references to oldie-goldies for my taste. However, the protagonist is likeable and I love the relationship between him and his K-9.

Alan Russell is becoming one of my favorite...

...authors of non-espionage thrillers. First there was Multiple Wounds ( a multiple personality disorder novel), then the brilliant A Cold War (about a long term slave-like abduction), and now the 3 novel Gideon and Sirius police thriller series. This novel is the most recent novel in the Gideon and Sirius series. I exceeds expectations. My only complaint is with narrator Jeff Cummings who is not nearly as good as the material he is reading.

More than a a dog

More than a dog is lost in this story. The tenacity of detectives pursuing murderers, no matter where the trail goes brings you to the edge of the story and tips you over.

Wonderful! Captivating!we

I was completely lost in the story. I couldn't wait for one chapter to end and the next begin. Absolutely loved listening to this amazing story and the author's love of dogs.

Excellent Storyteller!

When you become part of the story, you know that the author is good. I am hopeful that this will be a continuing series for years to come.

I cannot say too much about the story as I will not give spoilers. Even though I figured out the villain early in the book, I thoroughly enjoyed the ride to the end.

Clever

Enjoyed the quips and puns which gave relief to the " phyco"logical twist. The depth of the canines human bonds was a satisfying read by itself!

Good storyline must love dogs

Makes for easy reading but still very enjoyable. The story is realistic but slow. If you like dogs and cops you'll find it is a good read.
