This is a great series. Takes you into the life of a search and rescue teams. In this book Jo Beth Sidden's violent ex-husband is out on parole, while she is trying to work a high-profile kidnapping that may be to cold to track. As always her secret weapon is to depend on her best friend--a one year old, blind from birth bloodhound--the only creature smart enough to save her life.
This was the first book I've read by Virginia Lanier. At first I thought the heroine was too hard-core feminist...but I liked her more as the book went on. I loved the multiple plot lines too! Will read more of this series.
This is a great book if you love dogs, crime fighting, and the deep south all rolled into one! I highly recommend it. And, if you like it, she's written about 5 more sequels that are all equally as great.
What a gifted writer! To have begun her career in her 60's and produced such a body of extremely believable work is quite an accomplishment. I wish she had a longer life whether she continued to write or not.
