One Shot – Two Kills, Blood Makes the Grass Grow!

Wow! Great start to this military mystery. Immediately I was drawn to the story from the first page when I recognized my basic training base Ft. Leonard Wood, MO. Being a Disabled Army Veteran myself I totally connected with the story and the characters and it brought back lots of great memories of great times, however, it brought back a little sadness because of the loss of a soldier.

The story relates military experiences with on the job action

A collection of four stories, Emily Dahill CID, Part One, starts off heavy and ends with a big laugh. The first tale, Final Mission, recounts Emily's near fatal copter crash in Iraq. She heals, but can't seem to shake her new fear of helicopters. Even the sound of one flying overhead is enough to fill her with panic - until she meets her new partner. Dakota follows her into story two, A Body in the Snow, where he helps her to capture "the bad guy". With a partner like that, bunny slippers are ju ...more

Sargent Emily Dahill is a military police officer assigned the task of transporting Abd-Al-Aziz from Tuz to Baghdad. Lindsay Downs’ Sargent Dahill is a consummate solider who leads by example. The mission to transport the prisoner should have been a fairly straight forward assignment, as these things go.

The helicopter ride to collect her prisoner starts out uneventful but ends with enough machine gun blasts that make for more than a bumpy landing at the forward operating base. The rough landi
Emily Dahill is a strong female protagonist in this series of tales from Lindsay Downs. Introduced in the first story as a sergeant in Iraq, Emily shows her skill while training two newbies just before returning home. But her return is delayed and her confidence shaken in a helicopter crash. Pleasingly, as Emily embarks on a new army career as CID, she finds a partner who will help restore her strength.
Iraq’s scares and the details of a soldier’s care are described with the same convincing skill

I enjoyed the military style details in the stories, and the prequel of how Emily was injured in Iraq was quite intriguing. I'm going to have to get Target Identified to fill in the "what came first" because the other two shorts included here sparked my interest.

When I "chit chatted" with Lindsay Downs via FB a few weeks back the author told me that she loosely used JAG and NCIS as an idea for the Emily Dahill stories. That was it for me I had to read the book.

I would have liked to give the book 5/5 but I honestly have to say reading through the stories felt like having a yummy cake in front of you, but you're only allowed to have a little piece. The stories (see above for the outline) were interesting, written with (IMHO) knowledge, humour and wit, yet

The writing style didn't agree with me and the story seemed disjointed. I was glad in the case it was a short one. I also decided not to read 2 others I had with the same characters. Glad they weren't expensive and that I could get my money back.

This book is a heart-warming series of tales following Emily Dahill and her sidekick, Dakota... or is it the other way around? Dakota has a fantastic sense of humour, and likes to keep his humans on their toes. If you like dogs, pick this book up - it's worth it!
