The explosive new masterpiece of suspense from the #1 New York Times–bestselling author. LAPD cop Scott James is not doing so well. Eight months ago, a shocking nighttime assault by unidentified men killed his partner Stephanie, nearly killed him, and left him enraged, ashamed, and ready to explode. He is unfit for duty—until he meets his new partner. Maggie is not doing so well, either. A German shepherd who survived three tours in Iraq and Afghanistan sniffing explosives before losing her handler to an IED, her PTSD is as bad as Scott’s. They are each other’s last chance. Shunned and shunted to the side, they set out to investigate the one case that no one wants them to touch: the identity of the men who murdered Stephanie. What they begin to find is nothing like what Scott has been told, and the journey will take them both through the darkest moments of their own personal hells. Whether they will make it out again, no one can say.

This isn't steel and nylon. It's nerve. You clip one end to you, you clip the other to this animal, it ain't for dragging him down the street. You feel him through this nerve, and he feels you, and what flows through here flows both ways -- anxiety, fear, discipline, approval -- right through this n...
This was the perfect damaged cop meets new damaged partner and they fight their way back sort of story. Scott and Maggie are a newly formed pack. Scott is the human alpha and Maggie is his Afghanistan veteran German Shepard. Turns out I have a thing for mystery solving Afghanistan vets. [spoiler] C...
This is a book that you need to read if you're an animal lover! I loved the whole aspect of the bond that formed between Scott and Maggie. They are both wounded warriors, grieving their lost love ones, and somewhat rejected because of their emotional/physical wounds. Maggie was so awesome, I felt my...
