Overview

Even a robot dog can sniff out trouble...

USAF Lieutenant Samantha Spade is in the heat of the west Texas desert testing a dog-like robot for military use, when the device leads her and her team to a pick-up truck. The driver comes at them with a gun-and is shot in self-defense by Sam's friend. And then a gruesome discovery is made: three human heads in a cooler in the back of the truck.

Because the dead man was on the FBI's most wanted list, Sam stands to get a hefty reward. Too bad the technology to keep her shady ex-husband from sniffing out cash has yet to be invented. His appearance, along with frightening issues from her boyfriend's past, make it hard to tell just who is responsible for the pipe-wielding thug who attacks her. All Sam knows is that her luck has taken a doggone turn for the worse...

Once she was a cocktail waitress in Vegas, but now she is USAF Second Lieutenant Samantha JoEllen Spade on loan to DARPA as an officer in charge of testing inventions from civilians with potential military applications. Right now they are coming out of the desert after testing Snoopy SNFIR (self nurturing find and identify robot). They reach Pancho's to get a drink when Snoopy tries to get into a truck. The overseer comes out of Pancho's furious that people are at his vehicle. He takes out a gun, but Poncho kills him. In the trunk, they find a cooler with three heads inside it. The story hits the media who focus on Samantha and her previous exploits which they covered. After the hoopla dies, the Air Force brass feel Samantha is in danger from an enemy of her lover as several incidents aimed at her occur. They provide her protection, but a Mexican Warlord kidnaps her anyway in attempt to use her as bait to lure her boyfriend into a lethal trap. Smart, sassy and insecure summarizes Samantha who though unsure of herself, gets the job done. Filled with action and acerbic often self-deprecating wit, readers will admire Samantha as she overcomes her doubts about her skills to perform what is needed. Fans of military home-front thrillers will enjoy Catch Her If You Can and Spade's previous DARPA escapades (see Now You See Her and All The Wrong Moves). Harriet Klausner
