OMG! Did we have to go through the revolting, disgusting, gross, description of the floater that was found in the river? I just kept swiping the pages of my iPad to get away from it and the description kept showing up. If you have a weak stomach you won’t like that part. You might want to skip the first few pages of chapter 11.
As interesting as this story was I don’t think I could read anything else by this author. Spiders, scorpions, poisonous snakes, fire ants and cockroaches. Now, I like stories about killers but I draw the line at one disgusting bug, arachnid, or whatever, after another. Stab him, shoot him, strangle him, whatever, but bugs and other creepy things crawling all over just gives me the creeps. Jeez, Maggie had 12 scorpion stings all over her. Yuck! One corpse had been laid out on a mountain of fire ants. One corpse had a mouthful of cockroaches. Good grief! I was having a hard time finishing this book.
Then came the end, when all those bad guys came after Ryder. That part was soooo good. When he put all his dogs to work. And only 1 shot was fired. It was really good. But not good enough to get over all those bugs and things. From about 80% on it was a really good book.
There was no romance in this book and only a little bit of swearing.
As to the narrator: He was perfect with the voices, both the males and the females but there were no emotions at all. However, I would still listen to Graham Winton again because each and every voice was different, and that takes talent.

This was just ok. I like the relationship Creed had with all his dogs. He truly understood them. Creed was a man who was still suffering his demons about the war. The dog were strays who suffered some trauma. Creed was able to ease the tormented dogs and in turn they helped Creek stay connected with his humanity. There was a strong sense of loyalty between Creed and his dogs.
I enjoyed listening to Creed and Grace when they were working. Grace is this cute little Russell Terrier with a high intelligence and an excellent tracker. The author was able to give the dogs such personalities that was true to their breeds. I knew I found a flaw in the book when it describe a Russell Terrier as a tracker. So I research it and learned something new. That is something I like. It was emotional for me when Grace discovered the kids. That little boy... he had my heart.
I normally have at least two stories going at the same time. After I finished the other book, I did not feel the desire to finish this one. One thing that did happen was there was not enough action. I might finish it one day just to see how the crime is solved, but unfortunately, I just lost interest.
