Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.

Devon Brady is a devoted veterinarian working in a makeshift hospital on a remote search and rescue mission. When a man arrives with his wounded black Lab named Ned, Devon has no idea that she's about to be plunged into a whirlwind of terror and destruction...

Jude Marrock is out for revenge--and he has no choice but to involve Devon in a high-stakes cat-and-mouse game with an escalating body count. She doesn't trust Jude one bit... but when the shots start flying and friends start falling, Devon finds herself with nowhere else to run. And there are innocent lives, both human and animal, at stake, including Ned and his mysterious pack. Is Jude her salvation or her damnation? Are the secrets he's protecting worth killing for--or dying for?

With a lightning-fast pace, unforgettable characters, and gut-wrenching action, "Dark Summer" is compelling new terrain for master storyteller Iris Johansen.

Reviews

Review by Library Journal (2008-06-15)

Lucky for a wounded black lab named Ned that veterinarian Devon Brady is tending to him. Not so lucky for Devon, who is dragged into a cycle of violence by Ned's owner. With a one-day lay down on October 14.

Review by Library Journal (2008-09-01)

In Johansen's latest (Quicksand), readers meet Jude Marrok, who has devoted his life to protecting the "Dogs of Summer" from certain death if they were to fall into the wrong hands. These special dogs keenly understand humans, heal extraordinarily quickly, and might just have the ability to cure very ill people. When Jude's beloved chocolate lab Ned is shot, he leaves Ned in the hands of veterinarian Devon Brady, a decision that draws a reluctant Devon into his dangerous game.

Although Devon does not trust Jude, she accepts his offer of protection until a plan to save the dogs is completed. Jude himself worries that his attraction to Devon could 'cause him to make a fatal mistake. The unique plot makes this book stand out from the pack of romantic suspense novels. The characters are interesting and believable, while the action is fast-paced and thrilling. Recommended for all public libraries.
