Publisher's Summary

When LAPD detective Michael Gideon and his police-dog partner, Sirius, are assigned to the Special Cases Unit (SCU), Gideon knows their work lives will be anything but ordinary. SCU gets the cases no one else wants, the unusual and bizarre crimes that need special handling and special investigators. When a high-school student is found crucified in a local park, Gideon and Sirius must face up to the gruesome tableau and the motivation behind the murder. Complicating matters is a nightmare from their past, the scars of a terrible fire that nearly cost them their lives. The blaze left Gideon ravaged by PTSD - and yet somehow imbued him with an eerie prescience that gives him unusual insights into the crimes he investigates.

Needs a religion warning

Had I known this audiobook was peopled with Catholic characters including praying nuns I'd never have bought it. I thought an LA cop with a canine partner would be right up my street but I found him a rather sanctimonious character. Liked Sirius his dog though. I object to doses of religion in novels just as I lose all interest in series once the female lead reproduces and the novels become full of maternal outpourings. Give me Joe Pike, an extremely rare vegetarian central character bless him with no obvious religious beliefs and the sense of justice I heartily espouse. I shan't buy another in this series. The narrator did a fine job.

Very enjoyable read

Interesting police (LAPD) story with a human interest twist. I'm now downloading the rest of the series.

Took me a while to get used to the narrator, but got there eventually. He's has a... slaptick type of voice. Like a comical 1940's gumshoe voice. You grow to love it though.
