Forced into early retirement at 37, smart, attractive, and fiercely independent Major Holly Barker trades in her bars as a military cop for the badge of deputy chief of police in Orchid Beach, Florida. But below the sunny surface of this sleepy, well-to-do island town lies an evil that escalates into the cold-blooded murder of one of Holly's new colleagues.
An outsider, Holly has little to go on for answers and no one to help her - except Daisy, a Doberman of exceptional intelligence and loyalty that becomes her companion and protector. The closer Holly gets to the truth, the more she knows that it'll take one smart dog with guts to sniff out this killer - before he can catch her first.

A very good story and enjoyable listen.
The narrator could not have been better. What I need is someone with a pleasant voice to read the book. I'm not looking for an actor to portray each character; most of those of us who enjoy fiction have enough imagination to make the leap.

Entertaining and Hard To Put Down!
I just finished listening to the audio version, on Audible. I Love law enforcement mysteries! This was my first Stuart Woods book, and I can't wait to read the next title in the Holly Barker series! Definitely a page turner for me. I actually enjoyed the absence of the usual graphic, and gory violence, which tend to be present in the crime series, that I normally read! I did find that the narrator, "Cassandra Campbell", took some getting used to for me. She is so soft spoken, that at first it annoyed me. I kept thinking she wood be better suited to reading children's titles.!!" Eventually, I grew comfortable with the narration!
