From the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Elvis Cole and Joe Pike series comes a thrilling novel featuring LAPD K-9 Officer Scott James and his German shepherd, Maggie.

Elvis Cole is recruited to locate a missing lady, which appears to be a routine job until he finds that the missing woman is an explosives specialist who worked for a Defense Department contractor. Meanwhile, LAPD K-9 Officer Scott James and his patrol dog, Maggie, follow a fugitive to a house containing explosives and a body. As the two cases become intertwined, they’re up against mysterious arms traffickers and unscrupulous politicians, and the lady they swore to defend may be the cause of their own deaths.

Amy Breslyn, a chemical production engineer for the government, went missing with $460,000 in corporate funds and a recently acquired pistol.Cole is led to an Echo Park home, where he meets James after a man is beaten to death inside, surrounded by a cache of armaments and explosives.

Persecuted by the LAPD, Cole and his quiet partner, Joe Pike, slowly piece together false information and false identities, with James’ reluctant assistance at first, because he’s not convinced Cole isn’t dirty, but then wholeheartedly after attempts on the lives of both the K-9 officer and his Afghanistan-traumatized dog.

The Promise by Robert Crais

Crais is one of the brightest and most seamless plotters in crime fiction after 20 volumes. The tale moves along with ease, fueled by the mysterious presence of mercenary Jon Stone. Crais’ decision to narrate a nightmare scenario from the dog’s point of view, as well as James’ unending love for Maggie, can be a little much. However, the novel moves at a pleasant pace, aided by the author’s knowledge of the environment, and those military canines are deserving of praise.

Accomplice Liability by Stephen Penner is also interesting novel to read.

Not Crais’ most complex or difficult mystery, but another decent offering with a cast of interesting characters. His latest Elvis Cole novel, “Taken,” was great because it used several perspectives other than Elvis’ first person one. Then came “Suspect,” which introduced readers to Los Angeles cop Scott James and his new K-9 companion, Maggie, and was both fantastic and breathtakingly beautiful.

The Promise by Robert Crais

It had chapters from both Scott and Maggie’s perspectives, and the chapters from Maggie’s perspective were particularly beautifully written and effectively depicted a dog’s feeling of devotion to its pack, as well as how their sense of scent influences their perception of the world. Elvis and Joe, as well as Scott and Maggie, are brought together in Crais’ latest work, resulting in another dramatic, adventurous, and extremely affecting story.

Crais expertly combines several perspectives once again in “The Promise.” We get to spend time with Elvis and his first-person point of view, but we also get to follow Scott and experience the world through Maggie’s eyes and nose once more. The fact that some of my favorite chapters in a crime novel are written from the perspective of a dog speaks much about Crais’ talent as a writer and his understanding of canines.

But, as already stated, they are minor quibbles. The Promise is a tense, emotionally gratifying thriller that introduces us to one of crime fiction’s most intriguing pairings. It is hoped Scott James and Maggie will work together again soon.

Morgan’s Run by Colleen McCullough is quite romantic as well as adventurous novel.
