Publisher's Summary

In the new edge-of-your-seat thriller from New York Times best-selling author Alex Kava, Ryder Creed, his K-9 search-and-rescue dogs, and FBI agent Maggie O'Dell find themselves at the center of a dire and mysterious case.

In Chicago a young man jumps from his 30th-story hotel room; along the Missouri River, a hunter and his son stumble upon a lake whose surface is littered with snow geese, all of them dead; and in Southern Alabama, Ryder Creed and his search-and-rescue dog, Grace, find the body of a young woman who went missing in the Conecuh National Forest, and it appears she filled her pockets with rocks and walked into the river.

Before long Ryder Creed and FBI profiler Maggie O'Dell will discover the ominous connection among these mysterious deaths. What they find may be the most prolific killer the United States has ever known.

Good story but misleading info

I enjoyed the story but found the misinformation about coyotes never eating fresh kills distracting. Even though it is fiction I hope for some actual research into facts.

No Resolution

There are parts of this story where the author does an absolutely wonderful job providing rich detail, texture and character development. But when it comes to writing a conlclusion or resoling a thread she glosses over or rushes providing only a twitter length of words - very frustrating. At first I thought the thread was left hanging and would be addressed in the next book, but after listening to all 3 books I have come to the conclusion that this is Ms Kava's MO. There is so much to love about these stores yet when they end I am frustrated – enough so that if there are more in the series I am not so sure I will waste credit on them. At less than 8 hours of listening time it is clear there is room to address the threads and story line without over extending the book. Another reviewer talked about how abruptly these stories end which is true and I believe part of the abruptness is due to the failure to conclude and resolve adequately/enough detail what happens to all villains. Ms Kava is great at character development and setting the stage but falls short on concluding and resolving the story - actually there barely is one.

Good one

This is the third book in the creed series. - it is a break off from the Maggie o'dell books.
The first two were very good. All about Creed and his working dogs.
They were front and center. This was good story had all the characters from the other books.
My only complaint - not enough dog! The main dog was in the story. But many others were never mentioned. This book was more like the Maggie books -

Good.
