My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Police dog handler Mike Winters and his furry partner Falcon love a good chase. They’ll do anything to protect the streets of Sydney, whether it’s tracking a murderer through the woods or breaking up a bar brawl. It’s all fun and games until the bad guy gets hurt. And then it’s just fun.
Lately though, it seems that violent incidents are on the rise. When Mike and Falcon’s beloved commander is killed in action, Mike is determined to bring the perpetrators to justice, but he has no idea just how deep this malevolent plot runs. A terrorist organisation has devised a plan to attack the city from all sides, and they have taken over a refuelling ship in Sydney Harbour.
Mike and Falcon must use all of their wit and courage to battle the killers, expose police corruption, and, if they’re lucky, save a city from obliteration.
I wanted to give this book 10 stars as it was beyond good. It not only gripped me from page 1 but it made me smile, laugh and cry. It made you feel as if you were right there with Mike and falcon. It was gritty balls to the wall stuff written in a warts an all way that made it feel real. I now feel like I have had a look at the real life of a K9 officers job. What I loved most about this book is that it felt real, bad stuff happens and the good guys are not often able to stop it happening but when the proverbial poop hits the fan the good guys come through.
This is an opener to a series and this book sets the bar sky high I just hope the author can deliver on the promise this book makes.
This was given to me as an ARC by HarperCollins Publishers Australia via NetGalley for an honest review
