Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Stuart Woods delivers a riveting thriller that introduces an exciting addition to the pantheon of fictional sleuths.

Forced into early retirement at 37, smart, attractive, and fiercely independent Major Holly Barker trades in her bars as a military cop for the badge of deputy chief of police in Orchid Beach, Florida. But below the sunny surface of this sleepy, well-to-do island town lies an evil that escalates into the cold-blooded murder of one of Holly's new colleagues.

An outsider, Holly has little to go on for answers and no one to help her - except Daisy, a Doberman of exceptional intelligence and loyalty that becomes her companion and protector. The closer Holly gets to the truth, the more she knows that it'll take one smart dog with guts to sniff out this killer - before he can catch her first.

    "Enjoyable"

    A very good story and enjoyable listen.
    The narrator could not have been better. What I need is someone with a pleasant voice to read the book. I'm not looking for an actor to portray each character; most of those of us who enjoy fiction have enough imagination to make the leap.

    "I almost stopped listening"

    The book over was very good but if I encountered a Police Chief that talked like that I would think she was trying to seduce everyone she came in contact.

    "What is wrong with this narrator???"

    I don't understand how poor narrators cotinue to be used! Especially since the talented Debra Monk read the abridged version. Campbell makes Holly sound airy and cutesy. It's ridiculous. How could anyone take her seriously?! I want to know if these voice actors are receiving any direction and feedback as they read. If they aren't, START! If they are, get new directors.
