A search & rescue dog handler becomes the obsession of a child abductor. The dog handling took precedent in this, and then at the end it got overdone on the "crazy man" aspect. Also too many people with wrecked private lives (divorces, breakups, etc.) Most of the people weren't interesting.

Well-written tale along lines of Johansen or Cornwell, but with S & R dogs. Min character is stalked by serial murderer. The killer is playing games, seeking revenge by killing small children.
