Publisher's Summary

Elvis Cole and Joe Pike are joined by Suspect heroes Scott James and his K-9 partner, Maggie, in the new masterpiece of suspense from the number one New York Times bestselling author.
Loyalty, commitment, the fight against injustice - these are the things that have always driven Elvis Cole and Joe Pike. If they make a promise, they keep it. Even if it could get them killed.
When Elvis Cole is hired to locate a woman who may have disappeared with a stranger she met online, it seems like an ordinary case - until Elvis learns the missing woman worked for a defense contractor and was being blackmailed to supply explosives components for a person or persons unknown.
Meanwhile, in another part of the city, LAPD officer Scott James and his patrol dog, Maggie, enter an abandoned building to locate an armed and dangerous thief, only to discover far more than they expected: The fugitive is dead, the building is filled with explosives, and Scott and Maggie are assaulted by a hidden man who escapes in the chaos, all as a bloodied Joe Pike watches from the shadows.
Soon, Scott and Maggie find themselves targeted by that man, and, as their case intertwines with Elvis and Joe's, joining forces to follow the trail of the missing woman as well. From inner-city drug traffickers to a shadowy group of Afghan war veterans with ties to a terrorist cell, the people they encounter on that trail add up to ever-increasing odds, and soon the four of them are fighting to find the woman not only before she is killed...but before the same fate happens to one of them.

The Promise

Sequel to The Suspect, good story. funny in parts, good characters and of course the Marine Dog Maggie. I've been waiting for the sequel , it was worth the wait. I hope there are more to come. Both books won't disappoint .

"They Call K-9 When They Need Superpowers, Woof!"

Where does The Promise rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

The amazon reviews were right on, THIS is a good listen. Fast pace with a lot going on from 3 different view points. If you have trouble following different points of view, then take some relaxing time to enjoy this book. Elvis is back, and is joined my by heroine Maggie. Her partner Scott is caring i.e. "next time I will have to bring OUR sunglasses"

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

yes as author took all his good elements from previous books and was able to incorporate these elements in a different path and make it work for his fans.

Which character – as performed by Luke Daniels and MacLeod Andrews – was your favorite?

I am pleased with these readers paired together, Great Job and smart of producers! Luke has evolved greatly into Elvis and MacLeod did a fab job with Maggie's starring role book that this was a natural. McLeod's AKA reads as Todd Haberkorn shows off his full great reading range.

Any additional comments?

I am a long time fan of author and have all the Elvis and Pike solo stories (a must own, The Watcher read by my fave James Daniels). All of the author's books read by James Daniels are great. Audible, you need to get them as they are the best.

Entertaining with some interesting characters

Overall an entertaining read with some interesting characters. Felt the way it was written with it being told in the first person by different people a bit disfunctional at times despite a good storyline.
