Every chapter starts with a definition of a search & rescue term, then a date, time & location.
I found this helped to keep the tension level up as you were aware of the time pressure to search and rescue.
When Meg Jennings lost her PD K-9 partner she gave up police work until Hawk came along. Now working FBI Search & Rescue, Meg & Hawk are on the trail of a home-grown bomber terrorizing DC and 2 neighboring states.
The characters are well defined including Meg's sister, her workmates and their K-9 partners, firefighters and other agency staffers.
Potential relationship between Meg, a reporter and a firefighter is hinted at.
I purchased a copy before reading an ARC of book 2 in this series.
This novel has enough unexpected surprises to appeal to not only YA readers, but everyone as well.
Written by Jen J. Danna and Ann Vanderlann, the pen name of Sara Driscoll, they also write the Abbott and Lowell Forensic mysteries.
Thank you GoodReads for the book.
Meg, a former police officer, finds herself in the situation where she needs to work alongside, however warily, with a reporter from the Washington Post, Clay McCord. The bomber has chosen him to be his mouthpiece and together Meg and Clay need to do what they can to help hunt him down before anyone else gets injured or worse.
The detail with which the author uses to convey the deep bond between dog and handler is vivid. The skill required to do what they do, and the wide variety of tasks be it search and rescue or recovery takes its toll on both partners but giving up isn’t an option, for both Meg and Hawk.
If you are a dog lover and want to learn more about the incredible skill it takes to train and be trained as a K9 Search and Rescue/Recovery dog, then Lone Wolf is the book for you. Looking forward to more from Sara Driscoll and from Meg and Hawk.

Barely have Hawk and his FBI handler Meg had a chance to relax but they are called out on another emergency. This one is heinous, an explosion at the Department of Agriculture complex in DC, involving middle school children touring the building. Part of the building collapsed, much of it on fire, with few other details. Hawk diligently tracks for survivors before they seek those who did not survive the blast and subsequent fire. This is only the first in a series of bombings without rhyme or reason for why the next would be chosen. The ego and rage of the bomber bwho didn't get the attention he or she felt deserved led the person to contact McCord, a journalist at a DC paper, to rant and rave. In the meantime, Meg, a firefighter she met at the first bombing, and McCord are ready to use their respective resources to find the killer.
This well-written novel shows how very human the first responders are, including those who go into ruins to find the missing. The gamut of emotions is faced by the characters, emotions those outside of the profession can only imagine. The bond between a K-9 and its human partner is incredibly close, often stronger than the bond when both partners are human. The characters in this novel represent some of the finest of traits of such partners.
There are plot twists that, even though we see the mind of the killer, we don't see coming. To me, it is interesting to see the combination of investigative techniques and those who provide search and rescue to figure out who the real bomber is. The story is intense and suspenseful. I thought I knew how it would end, but I couldn't have foreseen just how much more stunning the story would get. I very highly recommend Lone Wolf; I am so looking forward to the next-in series!
