What you need to know before your trail

Mason “Mace” Reid lives on the outskirts of Chicago and specializes in human remains detection. He trains dogs to hunt for the dead. Reid’s coming off a taxing year—mourning the death of a beloved springer spaniel as well as the dissolution of his marriage. He adopts a rescue dog with a mysterious past—a golden retriever named Vira. And when Reid begins training Vira as a cadaver dog, he comes to realize just how special the newest addition to his family truly is…

Suddenly, Reid and his prize pupil find themselves hurled into a taxing murder case, which will push them to their very limits. Paired with determined Chicago Police Officer Kippy Gimm, Mace must put all his trust in Vira’s abilities to thwart a serial killer who has now set his sights on Mace himself.

Travel Guide

See Chicago through the eyes of Cadaver dogs!

An interesting view of Chicago this. We don’t just see how the police work but the dogs who sniff out bodies and all kinds of interesting things. We see the workings of the Canine unit and you almost feel as if you understand how the dogs work and how their see their role themselves. Its clear that the author LOVES dogs. Mason Reid in the novel also clearly loves dogs as he trains them for the Chicago police. The dog has a story, a history and the two bond very quickly.

Through the dogs and their work and the Velvet Choker thriller, Chicago looms large in the background. It’s  a bustling American city and crime is rife. A  good location for a crime novel of this kind!
