Tough Justice (K-9 Special Ops, Book 1)


When a drug bust DEA Agent Adam “Deck” Decker is working on lands one of his teammates in the ER with an accidental overdose, he comes face to face with a doctor whose green eyes hold nothing but loathing when they look in his direction. Her hospital has become ground zero for the recent rash of overdoses, and he will need her help in order to figure out what is going on. Problem is, Deck hates doctors. Doctor Tori Sampson is devastated over the loss of one of her patients, a teen who is just another victim of the gray death drug flooding the streets. She wants to do what she can to help, but she has a good reason for despising the DEA, but is it enough to keep her from doing the right thing?

A hold-onto-your-hats story that will have readers immersed in the action in a heartbeat and keep them flipping pages long past bedtime! Both Deck and Tori are feisty, strong-willed, and fabulously written characters that any reader will love. Their chemistry is sizzling, though both try to ignore it. They each have valid reasons for distrusting the other, yet how they learn to set aside their mistrust and work together is a lesson for many. Thor, the fabulous drug detecting canine is a delightful and integral part of this tale, bringing humor to the page and highlighting how magnificent canine officers can be. Parts of this tale are touching and outright heart-wrenching as it illustrates just how devastating drug addiction can be to a family, and the officers who work the cases. A thoroughly deserved Five Stars!
