APD 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

 

Review –

This is not what you would expect of a Robert Crais book.  He is best known for his Elvis Cole character and series and this is as far away from Elvis  as you can get.  It’s about a man and a dog, a defeated policeman and a shell-shocked bomb sniffing dog and it is a love story.  A love that comes from supporting one another in any situation always.  This is a great read and I highly recommend it.

Review –
Since I read these three books in The Soulkeepers Series almost back to back I thought I would present them this way and forgive me but it’s been awhile since I’ve finished them (I’m way behind in my reviews) so this will be short and sweet. 
The first book was offered free for my Kindle and it was a very fast read and I loved it so much that I paid for the next two in the series.  Although the books are written for young adults anyone  liking paranormal fantasy mixed with good vs evil with a bit of romance thrown in for good measure will love this series.   Give them a try.
