In the seventh “FBI K-9” mystery (after Under Pressure) FBI search and rescue team Meg Jennings and her black Labrador Hawk are in the Boundary Waters wilderness area in Minnesota, learning how to do searches on the waters and participating in a competition with other teams. After some odd happenings in the first round, Meg and Hawk are doing better in the second when Hawk detects an odd scent on the water. After locating the source, the diver on board their boat goes down to investigate and discovers the body of one of the other contestants. Unfortunately, it is one who has alienated most of the competitors (including Meg), so there is no shortage of potential suspects. The location in the remote north woods also complicates the investigation. Suspicion even falls on Meg, which prompts her friends and coworkers to aid her in clearing herself and finding the real killer.
VERDICT Fans of the series will enjoy this entry, which includes fascinating details about search dogs and their work as well as a unique settings and a colorful cast of recurring characters.
