Book Report...Silent Creed

Silent Creed - Alex Kava

















Product Description(Amazon.com)
When Ryder Creed responds to a devastating mudslide in North Carolina, he knows that the difference between finding survivors and the dead is time. He and his sturdiest search-and-rescue dog, Bolo, get to work immediately, but the scene is rife with danger: continued rainfall prevents the rescue teams from stabilizing the land; toxic household substances spread by the crushing slide fill the area with hazardous waste; and the detritus and debris are treacherous for both man and dog to navigate. But most perilous are the secrets hidden under the mud and sludge—secrets someone would kill to protect. For this is no ordinary rescue mission. Among the buildings consumed by the landslide was a top-secret government research facility, and Creed has been hired to find what’s left of it. 

Then rescuers recover the body of a scientist from the facility who was obviously dead before the landslide—killed by a gunshot to the head. The FBI sends Agent Maggie O’Dell to investigate, and she and Creed are soon caught in a web of lies, secrets, and murder that may involve not only the government facility, but decades-old medical experiments that are the subject of current congressional hearings. As more bodies are found under even more unusual circumstances, they come ever closer to exposing the truth—but with unknown forces working against them, Maggie, Creed, and the dogs are running out of time.

MY THOUGHTS:   This is the second book of the series.  All about Creed and his dogs.  The first day at the side of the landslide finds Creed up to his knees in mud.  As the ground starts shifting, Creed command his dog, Bolo, to run.  Creed is buried alive under mud and debris.  Bolo didn't run far and alerts to the rescuers that Creed is under the mud.  Creed is dug out and only suffers scratches and bruises, but has to broken ribs and a possible concussion.  When they find the first body, this person did not die from the landslide.  They have a bullet in the back of their head.  This calls in FBI agent Maggie O'Dell.  As Creed and Maggie search for info on this person, someone is stealing stuff from the wreckage of  the research facility.  But what was in that facility?  Who are the people stealing it?  Can't wait to find out, you'll have to read the book.  I give this book 5....
