A mysterious contagion will shatter countless lives unless a service dog and his trainer find a missing cat . . . in 24 hours.
A STALKER hides in plain sight.
A VICTIM faces her worst fear.
AND A DOG seeks the missing—and finds hope.
Eight years ago, animal behaviorist September Day escaped a sadistic captor who left her ashamed, terrified, and struggling with PTSD. She trusts no one—except her cat Macy and service dog Shadow.
Shadow also struggles with trust. A German Shepherd autism service dog who rescued his child partner only to lose his-boy forever, Shadow’s crippling fear of abandonment shakes his faith in humans.
They are each others’ only chance to survive the stalker’s vicious payback, but have only 24 hours to uncover the truth about Macy’s mysterious illness or pay the deadly consequences. When September learns to trust again, and a good-dog takes a chance on love, together they find hope in the midst of despair–and discover what family really means.My Review:
“Recommended for anyone who likes a 'bite-your-nails, hold-your-breath' kind of thriller." -- Dr. Lorie Huston, Cat Writers Association President
This is a great story for animal lovers along with mystery/thriller lovers! You get both in the same story so it's a double win for everyone. September is very close with both of her loving pets, the cat and her dog and they in turn love her right back.
It's a nice story that gives you a perspective from an animal also, which I like. I know that we can only imagine what they are thinking so it was refreshing hearing their thoughts.
Once September gets over her fear, her life will become a lot better for her and her pets. Of course, someone has decided that they want to shatter her illusion of safety and happiness and it will be up to her pets to help her get through this next challenge.
