Title:  Breaking Creed

Author:  Alex Kava

Series:  Ryder Creed series #1

Synopsis (from bn.com):  From the New York Times bestselling author of the Maggie O’Dell novels comes a thrilling new series featuring an ex-marine turned K9 rescue dog trainer…

Ryder Creed and his dogs have been making national headlines. They’ve intercepted several major drug stashes smuggled through Atlanta’s airport. But their newfound celebrity has also garnered some unwanted attention.

When Creed and one of his dogs are called in to search a commercial fishing vessel off the coast of Pensacola Beach, they discover a secret compartment. But the Colombian cartel’s latest shipment isn’t drugs. It’s human…

Meanwhile, FBI agent Maggie O’Dell is investigating a series of murders she suspects to be the work of a brutal assassin. By the time she uncovers a hit list with Creed’s name on it, it might be too late to help him. For someone is already on the way…

 

My thoughts:  I have been an Alex Kava fan for years – I absolutely love the Maggie O’Dell series.  I was a bit disappointed to see that she stopped writing the Maggie O’Dell series exclusively and had moved to a new Ryder Creed Series.  I was extremely reticent about the new series and honestly had no intention on starting the series as a story about a rescue dog and his trainer just didn’t fit me . . . but . . . WOW!  I was SO WRONG!

I absolutely loved this book and look forward to starting the next one already.  I really love that this series continues bringing us Maggie O’Dell and now Ryder working together on cases.

This new series has a great new main character in Ryder Creed – sexy, young, tough K9 trainer.

The story line is intriguing, fast paced, and gives the reader a super fast read.

And remember,

Books Are Life,

Heather
