My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Quick read about a cop suffering from PTSD after a shooting that was fatal to his partner and the K-9 dog with which he teams up. Maggie was injured and traumatized in Afghanistan where she sniffed for evidence of IEDs. Scott and Maggie help each other cope with their psychological wounds as they try to solve the mystery behind the shooting. Crais illuminates the bond between man and dog without giving Maggie special powers and creates two likable and flawed characters. The mystery takes backseat to the relationship but it’s adequate for a nice, summer read.
