It should have been a routine investigation. Instead, DEA K-9 agent Adam “Deck” Decker watches in horror as one Denver hospital seems to be Ground Zero for overdoses of a new drug. Now Deck can only hope a certain icy, green-eyed ER doctor will help him and his canine partner track down the deadly source.
Dr. Tori Sampson has her reasons for not trusting federal agents, especially ones working for the DEA. But the rash of overdoses—including a heartbreaking case involving a teen—is alarmingly high. And the new opioid is not only extremely dangerous, it defies all the usual medical treatments. So Tori has a choice: work with the big, brawny, and annoyingly hot DEA agent…or watch more innocent people die.
Tori’s the only person who can help Deck break the case, and they’ll need to trust each other, no matter how high the tension and attraction sizzling between them runs. But with every question answered, they realize there’s something more behind these typical teen overdoses. There’s a pattern here, and a pattern can only suggest one thing: there’s a killer on the loose.

O'Fallon launches her K-9 Special Ops series, a spin-off of her Federal K-9 series, with this expertly wrought romantic suspense novel.

As they hunt for a solution, it becomes clear that someone is after them and is willing to kill. Meanwhile, Deck's K-9 partner, a Belgian Malinois named Thor who falls in love with Tori even faster than his human does, steals every scene he's in. O'Fallon's 23 years of experience as a federal agent shows in her attention to detail, and she peppers her fast-paced plot with plausible red herrings, keeping readers guessing right up until the pulse-pounding finale. Readers won't want to put this one down.
