Lost Dog: A Gideon and Sirius Novel Book 3 by Alan Russell

Michael is a K-9 officer and I'm smitten with his dog.  Sirius is a German Shepherd who will do anything to save his owner.  He's very well trained and listens to his master.  And he's the one who drags Michael out to find an injured dog near his house.  He has no idea this is the start of a new case at the time...

Thomas & Mercer and Net Galley allowed me to read this book for review (thank you).  It is being published today.  You might want to grab the first two in the series to read also.  This one stands alone fine.

After a visit to the vet, Michael takes the dog back home.  However, there's no one there.  It soon turns into a missing person case and he's at cross-purposes because it's in another jurisdiction.  The presiding cop tells to back off, it's his case.  When he points out he has her dog, he tells him that's his problem.  And so it goes...

He has Heather missing and he's worried about her, he's trying to figure out what to do with the dog, and when a new friend he's made dies on a hiking trip, he's fairly certain it was murder.  All he knew was that the retired cop said he had one "ghost" still on his mind from work.  Trying to find a ghost is hard to do when that's all you know.

When the bits and pieces begin to make sense, he has an idea of what he needs to do.  I have to say that the dogs shined in this story.  Sirius saves him from being burned to death.  Angie is the one who finds her owner.

This is action packed and has a fast pace.  I enjoyed the story and will be watching for more in this series.  If you like dogs, you'll love this story.  Give it a try.
