one of the best books i have read so far. this is a mixture of two characters.. man and dog . one is a cop the other a veteran of the war. both are having problems with the past . then they meet. this is a real cop story with a side of mending. i read this in 8 hours and could not put it down. i would recommend this to anyone who likes mystery's. i sure hope they do a follow up? right now #3 on the best sellers list. this book does not have gaps and it flows right on until the end.
