Shadow-7 (Tracking Jane Book 1) by Eduardo Suastegui is a remarkable book telling the story of Major Jane McMurtry, canine trainer & handler & her bomb-sniffing dog Shadow. She is overcoming a bi-lateral amputation because of an IED in Afghanistan. Shadow is overcoming his own injuries.
Jane is describing herself. "But then I remember me, how I've pretty much looked since my sophomore year in high school: big, lumbering, menacing & intimidating, like one girl told me using her big words. As I strap on my second leg I run headlong into the other reason I should stop this flirting nonsense. I'm damaged goods."
This intense, page-turning suspense thriller is a fast paced, fascinating book to read. I gave it almost five stars. It needs editing for typos.
Eduardo Saustegui is a word master & I've got all his books on my wish list.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from Amazon. That did not change my opinion for this review.
