As part of an elite K-9 search and rescue team, Sarah Patrick and her golden retriever, Monty, have a gift for finding what no one else can. But their latest assignment is not like the others.

Go take care of Bassett and Booker. They’ve both been shot.” “Lopez, call 911,” Logan shouted. There was a screech of tires outside the gate, and a dark Camaro tore down the street. Lopez ran out the

Think of Bassett and the problems Rudzak was causing now. Don’t think of Chen Li. Rudzak pressed the disconnect on the phone and looked down at the tiny round box in his other hand.
