Description

It begins with a single shot.

Devon Brady is a devoted veterinarian working in a makeshift hospital on a remote search and rescue mission. When a man arrives with his wounded black Lab, Ned, she has no idea that she is about to be plunged into a whirlwind of terror and destruction.

Jude Marrock is out for revenge and has no choice but to involve Devon in a high-stakes cat-and-mouse game with an escalating body count. She doesn't trust him one bit, but when the shots start flying and friends start falling, she finds herself with nowhere else to run. And there are innocent lives, both human and animal, at stake, including Ned and his mysterious pack. Is Jude her salvation or her damnation? Are the secrets he's protecting worth killing for . . . or dying for?

With a lightning-fast pace, unforgettable characters, and gut-wrenching action, Iris Johansen's Dark Summer is compelling new terrain for this master storyteller.

        Usually adept at fusing well-developed characters with edge-of-your-seat action and adventure, bestseller Johansen (Pandora’s Daughter
        ) stumbles in this novel of romantic suspense revolving around a tumultuous relationship. Veterinarian Devon Brady and enigmatic former navy SEAL Jude Marrok meet on a small Caribbean island recently devastated by an earthquake. When a sniper shoots Marrok’s rescue dog, Ned, while searching for survivors in the rubble of a village, Marrok orders Brady to treat the black Lab, then promptly disappears. In a note he leaves for Brady, he promises to pick up Ned from her later. Soon after returning to her home on the outskirts of Denver with Ned, Brady finds herself a target in a deadly conflict involving international intelligence agents, ruthless billionaire entrepreneurs and Native American shamanism. An unnecessarily convoluted and at times unbelievable plot builds to a predictable conclusion. 650,000 first printing.

        In Johansen's latest ("Quicksand"), readers meet Jude Marrok, who has devoted his life to protecting the "Dogs of Summer" from certain death if they were to fall into the wrong hands. These special dogs keenly understand humans, heal extraordinarily quickly, and might just have the ability to cure very ill people. When Jude's beloved chocolate lab Ned is shot, he leaves Ned in the hands of veterinarian Devon Brady, a decision that draws a reluctant Devon into his dangerous game. Although Devon does not trust Jude, she accepts his offer of protection until a plan to save the dogs is completed. Jude himself worries that his attraction to Devon could cause him to make a fatal mistake. The unique plot makes this book stand out from the pack of romantic suspense novels. The characters are interesting and believable, while the action is fast-paced and thrilling. Recommended for all public libraries.
