"Ryder Creed and his K9 search-and-rescue dogs return in the second installment of an exciting new 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"--Provided by publisher.

The Ryder creed books are boring and tough to get thru. Nowhere near as good as the original Maggie OD series.

I really liked this book. Alex Kava is one of my favorite authors

Great book, can't wait for the next one. Love the characters and the dogs. A really fast read.

This is a fast paced, easy read with multiple story lines connecting all the characters.
A landslide has demolished a secret government facility, possibly exposing the surrounding area to deadly pathogens. Told over the course of several days, characters range from search/rescue teams & locals to FBI & politicians.
What could have been a cracking good story is diluted by the author's need to insert a romance into the middle of a thriller.
Several subplots are unresolved & will likely reappear in the next instalment.

alex kava has introduced a co-protagonist and it worked for me. Fast-paced, suspenseful, intelligent with an interesting historical backdrop.
