A taut debut novel about a wounded soldier, a courageous doctor, and a dog in desperate need of a rescue
Soldier, surgeon, traitor, dog…
When Sergeant Nate Calloway is carried into the field hospital with no memory of how he got there or where the other members of his unit are, Australian army surgeon, Captain Beth Harper cares only about repairing his broken body. But it’s clear that something went terribly wrong on the other side of the wire, and as Nate slowly recovers, he becomes more and more anxious to return to duty, go back into the field, and rescue his friends, his unit, and the bomb detection dog that he loves.
The only way Nate can be released to active duty is if a doctor agrees to accompany him, and Beth surprises everyone by volunteering. Her role is to monitor Nate and take him right back to hospital the instant that his health deteriorates enough to put their rescue operation at risk. But as she stays close, she finds herself inexplicably drawn to his courage, his determination, and his commitment to his fellow soldiers.
Instead of a straightforward recovery, however, Nate and Beth soon realise they’ve stumbled on a tangled web of deceit and danger, and the enemy is no longer outside the wire. He is one of their own, a traitor, and he has them in his scope.

'Great Book!! Military novel based in what we have come to know as the sandbox and the brave Australian servicemen and the medical support staff working there. The betrayal is unique here as it doesn't come from simple greed but obsession and addiction. The romance between Beth and Nate is a tightrope of their different rank, their pasts and more than a bit of hardheadedness. Nate is a hunky strong alpha determined to rescue his men and service dog. Beth is his strong counterpart and the doctor that saved his life. The characters were unwavering and brave in a nightmarish situation, yet not over the top: very believable. No cliffhanger and a HEA this was a good read and I would happily recommend it.' —Eli Falcon, NetGalley
