Ryder Creed and his K9 search-and-rescue dogs return in the second installment of this exciting series, teaming up once more with FBI profiler Maggie O’Dell in their riskiest case yet.
When Ryder Creed responds to a devastating mudslide in North Carolina, he knows that the difference between finding survivors and the dead is time. He and his sturdiest search-and-rescue dog, Bolo, get to work immediately, but the scene is rife with danger: continued rainfall prevents the rescue teams from stabilizing the land; toxic household substances spread by the crushing slide fill the area with hazardous waste; and the detritus and debris are treacherous for both man and dog to navigate. But most perilous are the secrets hidden under the mud and sludge—secrets someone would kill to protect. For this is no ordinary rescue mission. Among the buildings consumed by the landslide was a top-secret government research facility, and Creed has been hired to find what’s left of it.
Then rescuers recover the body of a scientist from the facility who was obviously dead before the landslide—killed by a gunshot to the head. The FBI sends Agent Maggie O’Dell to investigate, and she and Creed are soon caught in a web of lies, secrets, and murder that may involve not only the government facility, but decades-old medical experiments that are the subject of current congressional hearings. As more bodies are found under even more unusual circumstances, they come ever closer to exposing the truth—but with unknown forces working against them, Maggie, Creed, and the dogs are running out of time.
Bestseller Kava's exciting sequel to Breaking Creed takes K-9 rescue dog trainer Ryder Creed and his dog, Bolo, to North Carolina's Haywood County, where there has been a major landslide. At the disaster site, the continual downpour makes the search for survivors dangerous. Among the missing are scientists working on a classified project at the local branch of the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency. After one of the bodies recovered by Creed's team turns out to be a murder victim, FBI agent Maggie O'Dell, the lead of Kava's other series (Stranded, etc.), joins in the homicide investigation. The suspense rises when Creed gets trapped in a mudslide, though he has reason to hope Bolo has escaped to bring help. The undercurrent of a potential romance between O'Dell and Creed adds heat. Creed is a multifaceted character whose hidden depths are only barely revealed in this intense thriller, which builds to an explosive conclusion.
