suspenseful but continues

I liked the story but was a bit disappointed in the ending. I was hoping for more. I will probably buy one more in this series to see how it all ends.

Rushed ending

I was enjoying this book mostly, but the ending was too rushed. That just took the enjoyment out of the build up. Overall, the characters could have been developed more. Like grandpa. But the ending was just so rushed that I was left very disappointed.

I LOVED this audiobook.

Exciting from the first paragraph. Interest and story never lagged. The writer writes in word pictures. Ofcourse the dog is wonderful and adds another element of interest.
I learned a lot from this book.

Good Classified K-9 Story

I selected this book because of the title and there are dogs in the story helping people and searching for murderer. A fellow FBI agent is kidnapped and witness disappears in the beginning of the story and Leo Gallagher will not stop until he finds both of them. Leo has a trusty K-9 partner named True and go to question Alicia Duncan about what she witnessed and protects her and her son from the murderer.

My thoughts

I enjoyed this audible book. It revealed how we as individuals blame ourselves for things that are not our fought and we need God to help us to forgive ourselves.

Jake is missing with him not returning at the end,, you definitely need to follow up with the dog rescued.... very sad,,,,

This needs to end or go to the next book and bring back Jake, you never should leave a book with a Dog lost at the end with no finding. Especially when your a dog lover. It the go that needs the happy ending. .. is there a book with Jake somehow returning to the academy, or just finding his owner.???
You will loose readers if the dog is not found.... most people that read these books regarding dogs such as myself,,,, are very disappointed when a dog is injured, taken, killed....

Since there is no mention in the description...

There is ABSOLUTELY NO MENTION of the Christian undertone/overtone in the short blurb, I figured I'd give other listeners a heads-up.

It had the potential to be a good suspense novel... unfortunately it was turned into nothing more than a mediocre Christian romance. And it's obvious that the author has zero experience/knowledge of law enforcement or K9 handling.

There were far too many references to god (i.e., relying on god, being where god had placed her, knowing god would protect her and her child, etc.), prayer, Christianity, and faith in general. It's supposed to be a K9 FBI/murder/suspense book, with a dash of romance; yet everything that happens returns to god/prayer. She's being shot at and her life is being threatened, she's under the protection of a team of FBI agents, but god will be the one to protect her.

At times it felt peachy. After the umpteenth reference to god and prayer within the first few chapters, I stopped listening and had hoped to return it, unfortunately I wasn't able to do so. The only reason I ended up finishing listening was because I didn't want to search for another book while driving and had already wasted a credit on it.

Aside from all of that, the narration was pleasant (albeit her little boy voice is fairly irritating)!

Wanted to like it

I really wanted to like this book. The plot was okay but a lot of repetition of feelings and circumstances made it seem a bit silly. Had to exchange it.

Do not bother!

This book is advertised as fictional account of FBI canine unit and the team members. Sample starts with team attempting to arrest a crime/drug lord & an agent is kidnapped. It very quickly devolves into an unbelievable & unrealistic romance between a guilt ridden agent and the woman in his protective custody. Canines are almost secondary to the storyline. The dialogue is laden with prayers to God, thanks to God etc...extremely disappointing.

Narrator drove me crazy

I had to return this book because the narrator's delivery completely turned me off. She ended almost every sentence on an upward slide, totally eclipsing the story with her speech pattern. She did absolutely no justice to the story.
