LeAnne Hogan went to Afghanistan as a rising star in the military and came back a much lesser person, mentally and physically. Now missing an eye and with half her face badly scarred, she can barely remember the disastrous desert operation that almost killed her. She is confused, angry, and suspects the fault is hers, even though nobody will come out and say it.
Shattered by one last blow - the sudden death of her hospital roommate, Marci - LeAnne finds herself on a fateful drive across the country, reflecting on her past and seeing no future. Her native land is now unfamiliar, recast in shadow by her one good eye, her damaged psyche, her weakened body. Arriving in the rain-soaked small town in Washington State that Marci had called home, she makes a troubling discovery: Marci's eight-year-old daughter has vanished. When a stray dog - a powerful, dark, unreadable creature, no one's idea of a pet - seems to adopt LeAnne, a surprising connection is formed, and something shifts inside her. As she becomes obsessed with finding Marci's daughter, LeAnne and her inscrutable canine companion are drawn into danger as dark and menacing as her last Afghan mission. This time she has a strange but loyal fellow traveler protecting her blind side.
Enthralling, suspenseful, and psychologically nuanced, The Right Side introduces one of the most unforgettable protagonists in modern fiction: isolated, broken, disillusioned, yet still seeking redemption and purpose - LeAnne takes hold of the listener and never lets go.

Congratulations to Spencer Quinn
Having listened to all of the Chet & Bernie books, I really was looking forward to this one. It is much more serious with no laughs. However, the characters are beautifully developed and very believable. LeAnne is a Tough & not necessarily loveable person, but you care about her.
I am hoping for a sequel. I want to follow LeAnne and Goody on their journey.

An amazing story
I have never been in my head of someone with PTSD or injuries from war. This is an amazing tale about what our military endures. And has a mystery too. Mr. Quinn is a brilliant story teller.
