I read it in french (Sans retour)..the translation wasn't that great, but the story is good.
Daniel is an ex dog handler in England. He was forced to quit the police force because of something he did. You don't know what that reason is until fairly far into the book. He is separated from his wife, Amanada and his 8 year old son, Drew. His son desperately wants to live with his father, but Daniel works long hours as a truck driver delivering feed to horse stables and other animal farms. After his dog, Taz finds a little deaf girl for two grandparents, his picture is in the paper. He rece...more
Disgraced former police officer Daniel Whelan and his dog Taz have gained a local reputation after finding a lost child. So Whelan isn't too surprised when a man calls to beg them to find his two daughters, lost in the Dartmoor mists. He finds one girl, and learns that the other returned to her father and his surly brother on her own. But he's still suspicious of the pair--why did they call him instead of the police?--and when he sees a girl who looks like the older of the two, he's even more su...more

A really Good Mystery that I've read in a long time. Lyndon Stacey has written this story in a fast paced manner. The story keep you engaged through-out! It's the story of 2 Detectives, Daniel and Taz. The former is a retired Police officer who works as a cattle feed delivery driver and the latter, a retired Police Dog. They solve one crisis and the next emerges each giving a clue of the original problem. It's a "nice" read though.
Daniel Whelan is a former police dog handler who was forced to leave the force. His police dog was forced into retirement, too, so they are still together. He meets a distraught father who seeks help finding his 2 daughters on the moor. But something seems strange to him. Why were the girls running away? He can't let it go, and his life is beset by frighteners. All the more puzzling...
Really good read, fast paced story, believeable characters (to the point where I so want to meet Taz!) - I listened to this as a talking book, and couldn't wait to get to the next disc each time. Very highly recommended
Really enjoyed the first in this series with the new character of Daniel and his ex-police dog Taz. Looking forward to carrying on reading this series, very engaging.

A pretty good story of an ex-policeman and his retired police dog - the first of a series of their adventures with bad guys.
Lindsay Aly
A huge proof-reading error. All the publicity and the blurb on the back refer to him as Charlie. How could they have missed that?
New author for me.
