Content descriptions

General Note:
Sequel to: Tracking game.
Summary, etc.:
"A deluge has flooded the high ground near Hanging Falls--but heavy rains aren't the only menace descending on Timber Creek. While on a scouting mission to pinpoint trail damage, officer Mattie Cobb and her K-9 partner Robo stumble upon a body floating at the edge of a lake. Robo catches human scent, which leads to an enigmatic forest-dweller who quickly becomes suspect number one. With help from veterinarian Cole Walker, Mattie identifies the victim, and discovers an odd religious cult whose dress and manners harken back to the 19th century. As the list of suspects grows, an unexpected visit from members of Mattie's long-lost family sheds new light on her childhood as they help Mattie piece together details of the fateful night when she was abducted at age two. The tangled threads of the investigation and family dynamics begin to intertwine--but darkness threatens to claim a new victim before Mattie and Robo can track down the killers." --

    Mattie Cobb and her police dog, Robo, return for a sixth time, after Tracking Game (2019). The waters of Colorado's high country are flooding, and Mattie, out scouting for trail damage, finds the body of a man who is identified as a member of a polygamist cult in the area. Angie, daughter of Mattie's love interest, Cole Walker, and Hannah, one of the young girls in their circle, become friends. Another death broadens the scope of the investigation, and the suspect list grows. Hannah goes missing, and, when found, she reveals new information that sends Mattie and Robo on a deadly path that ultimately puts Cole's veterinarian skills to the test. All of this unfolds while a both delighted and terrified Mattie makes plans to meet her sister and grandmother, neither of whom she has seen since she was kidnapped when she was two. Rich in human interest and guaranteed to delight every dog lover, especially fans of Robert Crais' K-9, Maggie, and Paula Munier's bomb-sniffing Elvis. And, of course, Spencer Quinn's indomitable Chet. Copyright 2020 Booklist Reviews.
