When I first started reading this one, I had to go back and check the copywright date because it felt like one of her previous books. I soon found it just started like one of her previous rescue dog novels. She brings in some of her previous characters, developes the characters of some new individuals and the story developed around a treat to four wonderful worker dogs. There is much suspence, many twists and a great love story as well. As usual, Iris Johansen hits the mark again and brings us a great fast paced mystery.

I have always enjoyed reading this author therefore this one did not let me down. Fast reading, easy to follow characters and nice story line. There are a couple of characters that you know you will see again in future books. Would suggest it to any Iris Johansen fan!

I hadn't read anything by this author, though her name was well-known to me. I just didn't know what I was missing. It has enough plot twists and turns to keep even Sherlock Holmes whirling, and enough scary stuff to rival Preston & Child.

From back cover: It begins with a single shot.
Devon Brady is a devoted veterinarian working in a makeshift hospital on a remote search and rescue mission. When a man arrives with his wounded black Lab, Ned, she has no idea that she is about to be plunged into a whirlwind of terror and destruction.
Jude Marrock is out for revenge and has no choice but to involve Devon in a high-stakes cat-and-mouse game with an escalating body count. She doesn't trust him one bit, but when the shots start flying and friends start falling, she finds herself with nowhere else to run. And there are innocent lives, both human and animal, at stake, including Ned and his mysterious pack. Is Jude her salvation or her damnation? Are the secrets he's protecting worth killing for . . . or dying for?
With a lightning-fast pace, unforgettable characters, and gut-wrenching action, Dark Summer is compelling new terrain for this master storyteller.
