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.

Professional reviews

"There's no doubt that this is one of Crais's best. Teamed with MacLeod Andrews's narration, it will bring tears to listeners' eyes. It's the story of a German Shepherd named Maggie, a former military dog who was wounded in Afghanistan at the same time that her handler was killed by an IED. Maggie is then teamed up with Scott James, an LAPD officer who is also shot in an ambush in which his partner, Stephanie, is killed. The story of the loyalty and trust that bonds the two as they search for Stephanie's killers is told mainly through Maggie's eyes. Andrews's sensitive reading makes you want to finish the book in one listen. His accents are great, and his pacing is deliberate. Do dogs dream and have feelings? Crais believes they do. A.L.H. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
