For many years I've followed and read James Rollins' wonderful, adventurous novels. I pegged him right from the start comparable to the author Clive Cussler. I'm thrilled that this short story introduces a canine hero. Clive Cussler usually included one breed of dog in several of his books: the dachshund. Tucker and his devoted war trained dog, Kane, are real heroes in this short story after they both leave the military service. Saving a woman from being captured while she seeks her missing fath...more
What I like is just the thought: human and an animal as a team. Here it is as I said at the beginning ex-army officer Tucker Wayne and his friend Kane. Both make a quite sympathetic couple. Story-line interesting and imaginative. Again nice description of the surrou...more
The story is about an ex-Army Ranger, Tucker Wayne, and his trained war dog, Kane. At the beginning, Tucker and Kane are in Budapest when Tucker notices a young lady being followed by three suspicious-looking men. His military training on alert, Tucker assesses the situation an...more
I already know that they'll appear in the next book of Sigma but I would like it if they became a part of Sigma and this series, from now on.
I'll have to read Bloodline to find out how these two will fit into the picture.
Rollins really did a great job in the parts of the book that are told through Kane's viewpoint. It's obvious that both he and Tucker have established a very close bond, making them complimentary to each other.
I just wish this story was longer, but I did enjoy my introduction to these two and look f...more
A riveting short story that stands alone, yet clearly teases the reader with the introduction of a couple of fascinating characters. In search of a hidden Jewish graveyard to find Aliza's missing father, Tucker and his military dog Kane are amazing.
The bond between a man and his dog couldn't be told more eloquently than James Rollins tells it in TRACKER. This is enhanced even further as the author gives the reader a compelling view through the dog's eyes. Excellent Story; Excellent Characters;...more
Nonetheless, it did serve its purpose as, mostly because of this character, I'm more interested...more
I think dog people in particular would love this book. I enjoyed every bit of it (and I'm a cat person).
I quite probably gave this book two stars because it was just so short and I don't remember the last time I read a short story. Quite simply, I didn't know what to expect. My kindle said I was 54% done when it ended. Then I got a sneak peak at "bloodline", Rollins newest novel. So simply because it was sooo stinking short and quick, I gave this two stars. So used to way more character development, detail, and smooth transitions, this was a dissapointment in comparison. But had I had a clue how...more
