I am not and avid book reade,r and choose my reading usually by subject matter. The title of Mr. Reilly's book caught my attention but that was only the start. After only a few pages I knew this was a "read until finish" situation due to the way it was written by the author and the immediate heart tug to know how this was going to play out. The attention to detail and the explanation of the duties of a police officer along with the legal limitations involved with animal rescue was an education for me. Every horse lover, or should I say every animal lover, has to read this book to see the level of dedication that went into the rescue process, and I know that probably the majority of the time spent was Pro Bono, which is another tribute to volunteers like Mr. Reilly..

"Flame" is a must read for animal lovers. The author, Bill Reilly, not only engrosses you in the lives of the animals but also in the lives of the owners and staff at the SPCA as well. I was amazed to learn about the operation of the SPCA and the involvement of the staff and Humane Law Officer volunteers. Bill and other volunteers unselfishly give of their time and talents to help animals and humans where in many cases the results would have been catastrophic had they not intervened. Kudos to you Bill for making a difference and giving us a wonderful human interest story to read. Best wishes!! Linda R

I had no idea what a Humane Law Officer did until I read this book. The author takes the reader along with him on his cases. This book is heartwarming and gritty at the same time.If you re an animal lover, don't miss reading this book.
