A Russian scientist with a weapon that could wreak havoc upon the world; a chilling historical mystery; a breakneck race against time—the usual kinds of ingredients, in other words, for one of Rollins’ Sigma Force novels. But this one’s a bit different: it stars former Army Ranger Tucker Wayne and his working dog, Kane (introduced in Bloodline, 2012), and it spends more time than usual exploring the relationships of its lead characters. Rollins, who was a practicing veterinarian before turning to full-time writing, makes Kane, a Belgian Malinois (they look a lot like German shepherds), a fully participating character in the story, similar to the way Jonathan Maberry makes Ghost a character in the Joe Ledger novels. Coauthor Blackwood is best known for the three Fargo novels he wrote with Clive Cussler, but his solo trilogy featuring covert op Briggs Tanner, published 2001–03, gives him solid grounding for this novel. Fans of the Sigma Force series will definitely enjoy this one, and readers who have occasionally wished Rollins would slow down a bit and spend some time with his characters will get their wish. --David Pitt --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
"The taut and complex story sprints across the globe from Russia to Istanbul to southern Africa to the United States, and offers a diverse cast of well-developed characters and a tightly woven plot that intrigues, excites, and doesn't let go." — Library Journal [*starred review*]
"This exceptional military thriller, a spin-off from bestseller Rollins's Sigma Force series (Bloodline, etc.), introduces U.S. Army Ranger Tucker Wayne and his four-footed partner, a small Belgian shepherd named Kane. ...The action careens across Russia and into South Africa, where Tucker and Kane must go underground to find the deadly life form. Rollins and Blackwood succeed brilliantly at depicting interspecies communication." — Publishers Weekly [*starred review*]
"The result is a fast and furious thrill ride that satisfies from the first page until the last. Brilliant in all respect." — Providence Journal

When I heard about this new series about Tucker and Kane, I was excited to try it out. And I'm so glad I did. The husband of a good friend of mine was an Air Force K9 handler so I heard many cool stories from him and also got to see him work with his dog a few times. Amazing!
I enjoyed this book thoroughly. Great, bigger-than-life characters. An amazing dog. An action packed twisty, turny story that took me to Siberia, to Africa, to Canada and back to the U.S. The travel sequences made me feel like I was right THERE, in the middle of the action.
Rollins' stories are over the top but guess what - they're fiction and they're allowed to be.
I'm now going to start reading an Advanced Reading Copy of the next book in the Tucker and Kane series called WAR HAWK and I'm looking forward to more of their adventures.
Either way, the book is enjoyable, and I picked it up at a discount for $2 for Kindle and it was well worth the cost I paid. It will be something I will read again in the future sometime.
I could tell the difference in the writing, but it was a relatively minor difference. I'm not sure how Rollins and Blackwood divided their tasks, but the story still contains the multi-layered characters that I love and an exciting adventure. Fantastic and frightening in the possibilities. 4.5 out of 5.
