Just because helping out is the right thing to do doesn’t make it easy …
Pierce is on the hunt for Salem, a K9 military dog that belonged to Pete, a veteran, who can no longer look after himself or the dog. So the dog has been handed from owner to owner—until she’s become too much to handle—and now the law is involved. No one has Salem’s best interests in mind … and they definitely don’t have Pete’s either. Pierce is about to change all that … whether they like it or not.
Hedi, a young deputy, has lived in Arrowhead, Colorado, all her life and knows Pete and Salem but was helpless to do much when greed overtook his friends and family. She recognizes in Pierce the same qualities that Pete has, and, by Pierce’s actions alone, she knows a corner has been turned. She also understands the locals won’t take it lying down, and this means war …
Pierce served his country overseas for many years, and seeing another veteran in trouble makes him realize the fight isn’t over, even after life in the navy ends. In fact, this battle has just begun. But … this one … Pierce will finish. And he plans to win.

2nd book of K9 series. Dale Mayer is an awesome writer/author! She grabbed my interest from page 1. I felt like I was right there with Pierce, in anything he did or said. So descriptive of each character, one felt/sensed when it was the good person or the bad one.
But, I was kept on edge, not knowing how each circumstance would unfold!
This is a stand-alone book. I am glad. I don't like cliff hangers. Looking forward to reading the entire series! 🐰🐰🐰

All I can say is WOW!!! I started this late at night and stayed up until the early morning to finish it. The plot just grabbed me in right from the beginning. Pierce, a former military K-9 handler, is assigned to locate Salem a large female black German Shepherd that has gone missing since her injured handler went to a rehab facility. He goes to her last known location and meets Hedi, a deputy sheriff in Arrowhead, CO. The action is immediate and just keeps coming from all over the place. I couldn't stop until I had finished.
Pierce is a strong alpha former soldier who hates to see women and children being disrespected and abused as well as evil men taking advantage of others. He is the ultimate hero. He fights to stop injustice while trying to locate and rehabilitate, Salem. She has lost her handler, Pete, when he goes to a rehab facility. Pete's brother Ross is supposed to take care of her and Pete's house and property. Ross is just after himself. Ross files a report with the Sheriff, that Salem bit his friend. Over several months, Salem is abuse, tortured and goes missing. She no longer trusts anyone. Pierce with his military K-9 training, starts the process of trust once she is located.
Hedi is a strong, confident deputy sheriff who is fighting to protect innocent people against a corrupt Sheriff and his cronies. Two other male deputies are worthless and are slacking in fighting crime as well. Hedi comes to realize that Pierce is a "good man" as he stirs up trouble with the town's evil men and joins in the fight to help him.
I really enjoyed the POV format as there was so much action that getting a glimpse in the characters' mind really helped me to see the connect forming between these two.
This is a really good story. It isn't necessary to read the prior book as this a stand-alone. I highly recommend this book!
Pierce: The K9 Files 02
Pierce is the second book of the K9 series. He volunteers to search for the missing K9 Salem in Colorado and finds more than he expected. He meets Hedi, daughter of the former sheriff and a current deputy in a department that does not defend or protect. She is one of the few who is protective of the missing dog and her community. Together, Pierce and Hedi piece together what happened to Salem, her master and the going ons of the neighboring property. Respect, mutual support, community. Another wonderful book in the K9 series and I look forward to more books to come. Bravo!
