Aggie Malone is a dedicated young cop who has spent her entire life just looking for a place to call home. She never thought she’d find it in a quaint Florida village called Dogleg Island, where almost nothing ever happens. Almost . . .

Deputy Ryan Grady is an easy going playboy who carries a surf board in the trunk of his patrol car and lives in the same rambling beach cottage his grandfather built seventy years ago. He grew up on Dogleg Island and can’t imagine ever living anywhere else. It’s always been the most peaceful place he has ever known. Until . . .

Flash is a black and white, blue eyed border collie with amazing powers of perception, recollection, and deduction. He was born to be nothing more than a pampered family pet, however, and his skills might never have been uncovered. And then . . .

A single night of blood and terror changed the lives of these three forever, and forged a bond between them that nothing will ever break. While each of them struggles to deal with the scars left by that night, they must also bring a killer to justice – a killer who is also stalking them. And only Flash knows who it is. 


Well, I enjoyed the Raine Stockton series so much, I was more than ready to give Flash a go. AM I EVER GLAD I DID!! Because, hard as it was for me to believe, I love this series even more!!

First thing, it starts out that you “hit the ground running“. I’m not going to do a spoiler, you will just have to read it for yourself and you will immediately be sucked into this story! I was so much so, I bought the next two books to the series RIGHT AWAY! The characters are well developed, believable, likable (the good guys) and “the ones you love to hate” (not such good guys). This book keeps you guessing with lots of what I like to call “mini-cliffhangers“.

I took a chance with Flash and I hope you will too. But beware, you start it and you will have a really hard time putting it down. At least, I sure did 🙂

If I could go higher than five stars, I would. And that says it all 🙂
