When LAPD detective Michael Gideon and his police-dog partner, Sirius, are assigned to the Special Cases Unit (SCU), Gideon knows their work lives will be anything but ordinary. SCU gets the cases no one else wants, the unusual and bizarre crimes that need special handling and special investigators. When a high-school student is found crucified in a local park, Gideon and Sirius must face up to the gruesome tableau and the motivation behind the murder. Complicating matters is a nightmare from their past, the scars of a terrible fire that nearly cost them their lives. The blaze left Gideon ravaged by PTSD - and yet somehow imbued him with an eerie prescience that gives him unusual insights into the crimes he investigates.

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Nathan | 1/21/2014

    " Fairly decent, though I didn't like how the ending went nowhere with regards to what I that was the main enemy of the book. Still, a decent and quick read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Terri | 1/9/2014

    " The debut of this series, it is a good read. The policeman gets caught in a forest fire while rescuing his K-9 partner and gets awarded for bringing in a bad guy at the same time. That's the first chapter, the story deals with the man and dog going back to work and trying to work through the ordeal. Looking forward to the next book. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Eric Jennings | 12/28/2013

    " A great, complex main character. Some awkward writing and a few too many coincidences and implausibilities for 4 stars but a good read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Andy | 12/19/2013

    " Was okay. Had good plot, not a must read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 David | 12/19/2013

    " Pretty good police procedural with more-interesting-than-usual characters. Has a good dog character. Gotta love that! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Mike Steinharter | 12/9/2013

    " Not a bad murder mystery, but dialogue gets on your nerves after a while..just too cute. The dog is the best. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kparker | 12/5/2013

    " LOVED IT. Great vocabulary boost, too. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nevermore | 11/30/2013

    " Who doesn't love a dog story? Will read more by him. My only complaint was the same one I have for Parker. A little repartee with the significant other is tolerable but line after line after line of schtick gets old very fast. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Nina | 10/13/2013

    " Excellent thriller with a stand out detective and partner - human, funny and well-paced. I hope the author is busy writing further stories with this pair. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Naomi John | 10/1/2013

    " This was less of a crime book, more of a character examination. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ted Kendall | 6/30/2013

    " Great LA-based detective novel. This is almost a sub-genre these days and the author does a great job of fitting in the sub-genre but with the twists, in plot and character--that make this book stand out. A very enjoyable and well-paced read. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Liza | 5/16/2013

    " This crime drama was hard to put down. I truly liked the main character including his quirks and flaws. His canine partner was fabulous. Russell included a lot of one-liners that reminded me of the original Law & Order. I will definitely read more of Russell's books. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jay | 2/6/2013

    " This was my first Alan Russell novel. I found it thru Amazon daily deals and it was an Amazon Prime loan. I enjoyed it very much. Somewhat similar to Robert Crais books although that is not a good analogy. I think his first book was published in 1993. He is an author I am adding to my list. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Rick Riddle | 2/4/2013

    " A great, easy and fast reading murder mystery. I was done to soon and wanted more. Great author. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Barb | 1/2/2013

    " There is a fabulous man/dog relationship embedded in this story. Author writes excellent dialogue. The story is just a tad weak but the characters and relationships and dialogue make the book a great read. Four stars is high praise from me. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jane | 12/11/2012

    " the book was an okay read. a bit predictable and very lightweight. "
