Overview

From New York Times bestselling author James Rollins comes a stirring story of a soldier and his military war dog who are drawn into a dark mystery tracing back to World War II and a lost treasure tied to the bones of the dead.

Off the blustery streets in the medieval heart of Budapest, Captain Tucker Wayne and his war dog, Kane, rescue a mysterious woman fleeing three armed men. The secret she holds will unlock a terrible treasure, one steeped in blood and treachery, tied to a crime going back to the fall of Nazi Germany and a heritage of suffering and pain that reaches out from the past to wreak havoc today. In a final showdown in the depths of a lost cemetery, truths will be unearthed, treasures exposed, and the fate of all will rest upon the shoulders of one man and a dog whose courage is beyond measure.

Included within this thrilling story is a sneak peek at the opening chapters of Bloodline, in which the further exploits of Tucker and Kane will be revealed.

The latest short story from James Rollins is "Tracker" and despite its short length, it's just as gripping as his full length action adventures. Tucker and Kane are a pair of ex-military soldiers traveling together in Budapest when their skills are called upon to help a woman in trouble. The fact that Kane is a dog and the story is sometimes told from his viewpoint is both surprising and heartwarming! This would be a page turner if it had pages...loved it! It's the perfect intro for Bloodline, Rollins' newest Sigma novel due out later this month. You won't be disappointed...especially if you love dogs!

James Rollins has does it again! Tracker is a short but sweet e-only short that introduces a new dream team--Tucker and Kane. They're more than partners--this human/canine combination has an unmistakable bond! Tucker needs to call upon every bit of Kane's training in order to help a damsel in distress and her father. I loved the introduction of Tucker, and seeing events unfold from Kane's POV was a great treat! Bring on Bloodline, Mr. Rollins! And thanks for this introduction to what will hopefully be the new members of Sigma!

Could not put to down and was very sad when it came to an end! Love this wardog and his handler - can't wait for more!!! I really loved the tidbit of information that the dogs rank was higher than his handler's rank - you'll have to read it to find out why!! Is that really true?! Great story!

Loved the interaction between the man and the dog. Obviously a lead-in to subsequent full-length novels, this short story is tightly written with believable characters and plot.

Good intro to their k9 team-up. Looking forward to their adventures continue in a stand alone series as well as pairing back up with the Sigma team.

Tracker by James Rollins is a Sigma Force novel that I gave four stars. It is a fast book to read with suspense-filled moments. Tucker worked with his hunting dog Kane. When he was wearing camera gear, he saw through the shepherd's eyes. "The dog was as much an extension of his senses as he was a prtner." "The army had trained him to maintain such diligence, to watch for the unusual amid the ordinary. When he'd been a captain with the army rangers, he and his partner had served as the unit's trackers through two tours in Afghanistan-for search-and-rescue operations, for extraction, for hunting down targets of acquistion." I received a complimentary copy in an Amazon promotion. That did not change my opinion for this review. =

Such an exciting story with Tucker & Kane outwitting & outfighting the bad guys. The bond between man & dog is heartwarming. James Rollins spins a great suspense tale with a great knowledge of how military dogs can be trained & how loyal they are to their handlers.

Mr. Rollins is a vet and I really enjoy the dog's eye view of things he presents. I have had dogs nearly all my life, and enjoy the stories involving our armed forces canines.
