Publisher's Summary

Just because helping out is the right thing to do doesn’t make it easy...

Pierce is on the hunt for Salem, a K9 military dog that belonged to Pete, a veteran, who can no longer look after himself or the dog. So, the dog has been handed from owner to owner, until she’s become too much to handle, and now, the law is involved. No one has Salem’s best interests in mind, and they definitely don’t have Pete’s, either. Pierce is about to change all that - whether they like it or not.

Hedi, a young deputy, has lived in Arrowhead, Colorado, all her life and knows Pete and Salem but was helpless to do much when greed overtook his friends and family. She recognizes in Pierce the same qualities that Pete has, and by Pierce’s actions alone, she knows a corner has been turned. She also understands the locals won’t take it lying down, and this means war.

Pierce served his country overseas for many years, and seeing another veteran in trouble makes him realize the fight isn’t over, even after life in the Navy ends. In fact, this battle has just begun. But, this one, Pierce will finish. And he plans to win.

Book was awesome. The narration was horrific.

The storyline was so good. It has you on the edge of your seat routing for the good guy the whole time.

This narrator was so robotic and monotone he killed the enjoying of the story. I have read and Listened to every book in 3 other series and enjoyed all of them.

this narration made me want to scream, he was so bad. I say read the awesome book. skip the audio.

Umm the reader is.....

The reader (Ryan Frankona) is like a cross between a robot and the cop from dragnet. "Just the facts!"

Not the authors best effort.

The book was fair but not what I’ve come expect from this author. The writing was weak and the narrator left a lot to be desired. I will listen to the next audio book and then decide if it’s worth continuing on with the series.

Decent story, poor narration

I was looking forward to the second book of this series. About 2 minutes into it I couldn’t wait for it to be over. The narrator had such a monotone drone that I could barely stand it. The story ended up being decent, just what I expected but if I listen further in this series it will only be if the narrator is different. Also, as I look at the other titles it seems hat many are shorter than I like to send my credits on.

Bad narration

I can’t tell you how bad this narration was. I still can’t believe audible hasn’t had someone else do this. Cold he just read words. Hated it. I liked the book it but would read it next time.

Worst narrator ever

The story is good. But read the book on this one. This narrator should be banned.

Narration Horrible

I would have enjoyed this book if not for the narrator. Monitone. No inflection in voice. It was as if a man was just learning how to read. It was a waste of money.

really!

the voice sounds more like a computer than a living being an abslutely aweful rendition of a reasonable story line! Also at times it sounds like the natrative has been patched as if the reader had missed a sentence or word and it has been added later the volume changes as dothe timber in the voice.

Absolutely terrible narration

Should have read other reviews before purchasing.
Absolutely terrible narration; no inflection or intonation, had to reduce speed as reading was too fast, and even at slower speed couldn't hear any punctuation, not even periods!

Pierce

Great story I thoroughly enjoyed it I purchased as an audible book but the narrator was dreadful no expression in reading just a boring read through, the narrator in the others books by this author were 100% better will always check who narrator is before purchasing audio again. Dale you need to make sure you don’t use that person again as your books are great but if the narrator sounds as if they don’t care about story it detracts from the whole experience.
