A good short story, the only drawback? Too short! When it comes to adventure stories, short stories isn't the best thing in my opinion. You never really have time to get into the story before it is over. Often these kinds of stories are a prequel to the next book and I don’t understand why they instead just not put the prequel in the book instead as a chapter. This is just an appetizer …and I want the whole cake!

Pretty good short story with two major characters, one a soldier and the other a K9 tracker. Realistic PoV with the human and very imaginative with the Belgian Malinois; it's difficult to write an animal's point of view well, but author James Rollins does better than most. In particular, his use of present tense for Kane, emphasizing how dogs live in the present, resonates here.

As for the story, it's a hunt for a kidnapped professor who's stumbled onto a cache of Nazi gold. Why is it always Nazi gold? It's not as if they didn't steal and hoard and hide other stuff, you know.

With that little annoyance in mind, we'll call this one four stars. ( )

Quick little tale. Great interaction with two best friends, one with two legs and one with four. Look forward to more!! ( )

An ex-soldier and his highly intelligent trained war dog help out a woman trying to get her father out of the clutches of rogue Hungarian spooks after a large amount of gold looted by the nazis.

As usual Rollins' writing grabs you and holds you. A great introduction to a promised new member of Sigma, and an appetizer for Bloodline. ( )
