The greatest threat to this K-9 team is the one they don't see coming.

Cora Isaksson’s guilt has shadowed her life ever since drugs ensnared her brother and he disappeared. When Bradley suddenly returns, Cora and her narcotics detection K-9 are thrust into a battle against the drug cartel that wants him back.

DEA Special Agent Kent Thomson has his own personal reasons for bringing justice to the cartel. Cora and her drug-sniffing K-9 will only get in his way. Or are they assets that will enable him to right the wrongs of the past? 

When the cartel targets Cora, she and Kent join forces with her teammates at the Phoenix K-9 Security and Detection Agency to end the cartel before it ends her. They’re prepared for danger, but when more lives than their own hang in the balance, can they trust God for the rescue that’s out of their reach?

Hidden Danger continues the thrilling story of the elite Phoenix K-9 Security and Protection Agency that began with prequel Rising Danger. (Each book can stand alone or be read as series installments.)

My Perspective

This was a fun read. Agen had my attention right from the very first chapter which was full of intensity. I enjoyed the way she incorporated the K9 into the story as a drug sniffing dog. It’s so prevalent, unfortunately, in our world today and I liked seeing it in a story. Especially the scenes at the high school. Agen brings to light something that our nation is truly dealing with, and just how dangerous it can be. She reminds readers that it is in the schools across the country, as much as we’d like to say it’s not. It’s sad really, and I wonder how many schools have dog visits like this.

Aside from that, the mystery behind the drug scene did keep you on your toes. I had my suspicions about how it would all turn out, and I was right for the most part. At times I did find Cora to be a bit naive, and almost go along with things because she just knew that God would take care of her. And while I’m not doubting that to be true at all, because He can and will take care of us, it almost seemed like an excuse for her to be almost wreckless. But this was simply who she was, and just my opinion. 🙂

The faith thread was very strong, as you can imagine from my previous statement. I like that Agen doesn’t shy away from sharing the gospel in her books. Especially when in settings such as this, it can be difficult to weave it into the storyline. I know there were things I needed to hear within the pages of this book, and I imagine the same is true for other readers as well.

All in all, this was a great, quick read that I can see myself reading again down the road. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I was not required to write a favorable review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

    I do love stories with animals in them! I love this series and I can’t wait for the next one! I hope to one day add them all to my keeper shelf! Our sweet golden retriever passed away in June. These animals sure have a way of making their way into our hearts!

    The extra insights given in this review helped clarify a few questions I had about Cora. I am looking forward to reading Hidden Danger.

  3. Freida Cameron

    I love suspense novels and especially ones that include Jesus as a source for overcoming fear. I have not yet read anything by this author, but, reading this synopsis reminds me very much of one of my favorites, Elizabeth Goddard. I intend to add it to my TBR list immediately.
