There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
After the first couple of chapters is when stuff starts to get interesting, though I have to say the plot still takes too long to get going. Driscoll spends too much time setting up her protagonist getting into the situation to uncover a human trafficking ring, and there aren’t too many points where Meg herself is in any peril (apart from a rather bizarre scene with an alligator) which makes it hard for the reader to really feel any suspense in the story.
There were parts of the story I really enjoyed, and it’s obvious the author really knows her stuff when it comes to both disaster management scenarios and K-9 handling. Unfortunately, the book overall kind of falls in between two genres while not fitting into either; there’s not enough romance for it to be a romantic suspense, and there’s not enough ‘thrill’ for it to be a thriller. Meg doesn’t seem to be personally engaged in any way apart from her righteous outrage as a law enforcement officer investigating a heinous crime, in fact she actively tries to get out of being involved and is basically pressured into it by a senior officer.
This is a hard one to rate because it had good parts and yet there were a fair few issues; at the end of the day I’d probably read other books by this author but I’d hope for them to be better than this one. Three stars.
Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book for review through NetGalley.
Meg is at an aftermath of a hurricane with her search and rescue dog, Hawk, when she stumbles upon a van, caught in the water. What she discovers within will shake her up and it will take all her reserves of strength and determination to see the job through, once she starts it. Luckily for her, her boyfriend Todd is on hand, as well as her fellow K-9 handlers, for support, both mental and practical.
I really enjoyed this book, and getting to know Meg's friends and boyfriend a little better was part of the joy of the read. Of course, the case that Meg becomes involved with is quite shocking, and it helps if you have a bit of a strong stomach! I think it is fascinating, what search and rescue people (and animals) do, and I am grateful they put their lives on the line for us, when things go wrong.
I give this book 4.5 stars and I am already looking forward to reading the next one!
Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Books.

AND the story was spot on! Rich, deep, multiple scenes, many levels all woven together. You did a great job painting each moment, making each one very real. I could smell the swamp and the fear of the women when the Alligator bit Emma’s leg. But the visceral feeling of fighting the beast was awesome. Talk about a good reason to keep your knives sharp!!
Finally, I want go thank you for moving beyond the short ebooks in this genre. I really appreciate your hard work and effort to make this book longer, to allow your readers to live in this world for awhile. Too often ebook writers do little more than longer short stories. A good book should take much longer to read than the typical 5 to 7 hours of some of the stories. So, thank you! I cannot wait for your next book!!!! Write on!
