Full Disclosure: I am a lover of dogs. I have lived with dogs almost continuously my entire life. I enjoy the canine characters as much as the human characters in the Ryder Creed series by Alex Kava. Ryder is a former marine. He is now a dog handler who accepts rejected dogs and trains them to find and recover or rescue people and scent drugs and diseases. Her earlier series about FBI profiler, Maggie O’Dell is also very good. There is cross-over between the characters and the continuity is good.
In Reckless Creed, three seemingly separate situations are, in fact, connected. They are a Chicago “suicide” by jumping out a window, a Nebraska lake filled with dead birds, and the body of a woman drowned by “suicide” in a Florida river. Ryder Creed and Maggie O” Dell work together to discover if the deaths are related and if they are the work of a serial killer.
