Lone Wolf by Sara Driscoll
I picked up this book on Kindle Unlimited quite awhile ago. Surely can’t figure out why I waited so long to read it!
Publisher’s Description: Meg and Hawk are part of the FBI’s elite K-9 unit. Hawk can sniff out bodies anywhere—living or dead. When a bomb rips apart a government building in Washington D.C., it takes all of the team’s extensive search-and-rescue training to locate and save the workers and visitors buried beneath the rubble.
But even as the duo are hailed as heroes, a bomber remains at large, striking terror in a widening spiral of unpredictability. As more bombs are detonated and the body count escalates, Meg and Hawk are assigned to a task force dedicated to stopping the unseen killer. It will come down to a battle of wits and survival skills between Meg, Hawk, and the bomber they’re tracking to rescue a nation from the brink of chaos.
Nervous Nellie’s nervousness necessitates knowledge of the novel. In other words …SPOILERS. *BEWARE*
Nervous Nellie says…
I love animals and it just so happens on my summer reading bingo card, one of the squares is to read a book with an animal in it. I figured I’d start the book and if I didn’t like it, I wasn’t out anything. Oh, MAN! I would have spent full price for this book! It was a page turner and I loved it!
Meg is a K-9 handler for the FBI and Hawk is a black lab rescue that she’s taught search and rescue. I gotta tell ya that I’d LOVE to have that training skill. Anyway, this story is about a homegrown terrorist bombing public buildings. Meg meets Todd Web and Clay McCord. Clay McCord is instrumental in helping to solve the case even though tensions are high with him being a reporter for the Washington Post.
The story was sad as much as satisfying in the end. The end didn’t change all the people who died, but at least the guy got caught and Hawk took a bite out of him. There was no sex, there is some foul language and a lot of death, but the bright light shown on those who survived.
It was a great book – very mystery/thriller but not as thriller-ish as a psychological thriller (those books are INTENSE). Oh and the narrator? Angela Dawe was magnificent! I sunk so far into the story with her narrating, I didn’t even notice her narrating – that’s how good she was!
