Description

A rescue dog, an ex-Marine, and an ex-convict are caught in the crosshairs of a ruthless gang in remote Washington state, in this "first-rate thriller" (Associated Press) for "fans of CJ Box and Michael Koryta" (Booklist).

Former US Marine Jess Winslow reenters civilian life a new widow, with little more to her name than a falling-down house, a medical discharge for PTSD, and a loyal dog named Lucy. The only thing she actually cares about is that dog, a black-and-white pit bull mix who helps her cope with the devastating memories of her time in Afghanistan.

After fifteen years — nearly half his life — in state prison, Mason Burke owns one set of clothes, a wallet, and a photo of Lucy, the service dog he trained while behind bars. Seeking a fresh start, he sets out for Deception Cove, Washington, where the dog now lives.

As soon as Mason knocks on Jess's door, he finds himself in the middle of a standoff between the widow and the deputy county sheriff. When Jess's late husband piloted his final "fishing" expedition, he stole and stashed a valuable package from his drug dealer associates. Now the package is gone, and the sheriff's department has seized Jess's dearest possession-her dog. Unless Jess turns over the missing goods, Lucy will be destroyed.

The last thing Mason wants is to be dragged back into the criminal world. The last thing Jess wants is to trust a stranger. But neither of them can leave a friend, the only good thing in either of their lives, in danger. To rescue Lucy, they'll have to forge an uneasy alliance. And to avoid becoming collateral damage in someone else's private war, they have to fight back — and find a way to conquer their doubts and fears.

        Widowed former marine Jess Winslow can cope with PTSD only because of beloved pit bull Lucy, who's been kidnapped by an evil sheriff, and the crusty former convict who trained Lucy is determined to help Jess get her back. The multi-award-nominated Laukkanen based Lucy on his own rescue pup.

        The latest by the author of the Stevens and Windermere series and the maritime thriller Gale Force (2018).When Mason Burke is released from a Michigan prison after serving 15 years for murder, he has no skills and no money. Near the end of his sentence, he worked with a rescue pit bull mix named Lucy in an experimental program. They weren't supposed to bond, but you know how men and dogs are. Upon his release, Burke knows he can never have Lucy back, but he simply wants to know she's doing well. From a photo he correctly guesses that she's been sent to tiny Deception Cove, Washington, so he borrows money and follows her there. Lucy has been a companion for widowed ex-Marine Jess Winslow, whose psyche remains badly shaken by combat in Afghanistan: "She couldn't survive without Lucy." But when a corrupt deputy sheriff gives Jess trouble, Lucy bites him in the butt. Authorities take umbrage--and Lucy--and plan to destroy her. Jess' dead husband, Ty, had something the crooked cops want, and they hold Lucy hostage until Jess coughs up information she doesn't have. When Mason and Jess meet, they are two troubled people connected only by a homely, comforting dog. Jess' nightmares make her scream, and Lucy's slobbery tongue on her face calms her down. For his part, Mason's time in prison was well spent with reading and reflection on his screw-ups. Once they meet, the story escalates quickly. Springing Lucy from death row is job No. 1, after which all three are in deep trouble. Jess and Mason carry equal weight in this story as they learn to trust and rely on each other. Her marksmanship skills come in handy, while "the most decent man she'd ever met in her life" has much to learn. But decency is his strong suit, and it serves him well. And Lucy shows them both a fierce loyalty. If the novel ever becomes a movie, she'll be a strong candidate for best supporting dog.Laukkanen's thrillers go beyond bloodshed and giving bad guys their due. His protagonists show a level of humanity that makes his stories a real pleasure.

        Starred review from March 25, 2019
        Deception Cove, Wash., “a rainy-day kind of place” that’s the atmospheric setting of this superior standalone from Thriller Award finalist Laukkanen (Gale Force), is home to Jess Winslow, a Marine veteran whose service in Afghanistan left her with PTSD. Jess’s husband, Ty, drowned while drunk, and her only companion is Lucy, a therapy dog. Jess receives an unsettling late-night visit from a power-hungry local deputy, Kirby Harwood, who insists that Jess must know the location of a package belonging to him that Ty possessed. Harwood is unwilling to accept Jess’s protestations of ignorance, and his menacing posture prompts Lucy to attack him. When ex-convict Mason Burke, who just finished a prison sentence for homicide in Michigan, hears that Lucy has been designated for destruction after this incident, he’s sure that the dog he took pride in training behind bars wouldn’t have turned violent without good cause. Mason treks out to Deception Cove to save Lucy, a mission that inevitably puts him at odds with Harwood. A crackerjack plot enhances the moving portrayals of the leads’ inner lives. Laukkanen has never been better. Agent: Stacia Decker, Donald Maass Literary.

Burke's first priority upon release from prison is to track down the service dog, Lucy, he trained as part of a prisoner program. Lucy is now residing with Jess, a newly widowed ex-marine with PTSD who finds himself in the midst of murder and corruption involving a violent gang. The narrators' delivery styles complement each other, with Patterson bringing out the inner toughness of Jess and Stillwell highlighting the bewilderment of Mason, whose prison experience has not prepared him for the situation he now faces. A thrilling adventure ensues. K.J.P. � AudioFile 2019, Portland, Maine
