Overview

Special Agent Meg Jennings and her search-and-rescue dog are on the trail of a killer hiding where others fear to tread…
 
For Meg Jennings and her K-9 companion, Hawk, exploring the ruins of a deserted building is an exciting way to sharpen their skills without the life-or-death stakes they face as part of the FBI’s Human Scent Evidence Team. But deep in the echoing rooms of an abandoned asylum, Hawk finds the body of an elderly woman. The victim couldn’t have made her way into the derelict building on her own. Before forty-eight hours pass, Meg learns of more cases of elders found dead in neglected urban structures.
 
There’s not enough evidence to link the deaths—yet. But Meg scents a pattern, and when she gets word of another senior gone missing, she and Hawk don’t hesitate. Meg is sure a murderer is hunting the elderly, and she can prove it if she can just find a connection. It will take the expert coordination of her whole team, along with help from Clay McCord and Todd Webb, to uncover the means, let alone a motive. And to stop someone who has operated in the dark for so long, Meg will need to risk more than she has to give . . .

This latest edition to the series is full of tension! I often found myself holding my breath. Meg and Hawk along with Webb stumble into a case that is twisted and horrible. The rest of the cast of characters are back along with some new. I hope we get to see more of them in future books. This book is full of mystery, suspense, action, and intrigue.

No Man’s Land begins with Meg and her FBI K-9 dog Hawk spending their day off urbexing (urban exploring) with friends in an abandoned psychiatric hospital. The plan is to get some interesting search and rescue practice but things get real fast when Hawk leads them to a recently deceased elderly woman. As the woman is found inside a coal bin that she almost certainly would not have been able to enter on her own there is immediate concern that she was murdered. After Meg’s investigative reporter friend does some research and finds another case of an elderly person found within an abandoned building (in another state), Meg brings the information to her supervisor at the FBI and they begin investigating. Before reading the novel I’d heard of urban exploring but knew very little about it and had no idea there was so much jargon specific to urbexing. The author does an excellent job of providing definitions so there’s no need to be familiar beforehand. I enjoyed learning about urbexing and the abandoned buildings and information about their history made a fascinating backdrop for the story. I love dogs and enjoyed the relationship between Meg and Hawk, as well as watching them work. The plot was intriguing and fast paced, and the climax was a satisfying conclusion for both the plot and the emotional aspects of the case for the characters. I’ll be looking forward to the next book in the series! I recommend No Man’s Land for anyone who enjoys mysteries, books about dogs or K-9s specifically, or interesting/suspenseful settings like abandoned buildings (it’s not horror novel level scary, just spooky). Thank you to the publisher and author for the ARC. The opinions in this review are honest and my own. #NoMansLand #mystery #K9s #urbexing

This book was so good!! It is well written and holds your attention. It has action, drama and of course, the smart K9's. This is the first book I've read by this author, now I want to read the first three books in this series. Thank you Kensington Books via NetGalley for the ARC cop of this book. All opinions expressed are my own.

No Man’s Land by Sara Driscoll FBI K-9 #4 Have any idea what urbex is? I sure didn’t when I began reading this book but it was definitely something new and intriguing. Who knew that people go out dare-defilishly exploring buildings that are wrecks and no doubt should be condemned and knocked down BUT for Meg and her K-9 partner who go into dangerous places looking for survivors an urbex site is a great place to train...with someone that knows what they are doing. The descriptions of the derelict buildings in this book reminded me of an exhibition at the Sursock Museum in Beirut that I attended this year. The photographs were of abandoned buildings in Lebanon. It was haunting and disturbing and this book’s sites were no doubt the same. And, to have a fiendish killer leaving bodies in such buildings even more creepy. With the clock ticking, more elderly people disappearing and dying and a team of civilian and FBI working the case as they try to get ahead of and capture the killer they look for clues, research angles, try to save people, become frustrated with near misses and finally manage to put all the pieces together to determine who the culprit is. The drama was real. The locations well described and creepy. The killer intelligent, committed and methodical. Dogs superb. The characters well crafted. The camaraderie warm and believable. And...I REALLY enjoyed this book! This story brings back the sisters and their boyfriends as well as the FBI K-9 team with their human handlers and also introduces a new person or two that may show up in future books in the series. I would love to see find out more about Meg’s teammates Lauren and Scott as well as their dogs. I wonder if Chuck, Webb’s friend, will show up in future books. I also wonder if the introduction of the two new women will see them appearing in future cases. I am curious to see what will happen next with Meg and Webb as well as with Cara and McCord. This series has wonderful characters that work together and make me feel I am coming home each time I pick up the next book. I can’t wait to read book five as soon as it is written! Thank you to NetGalley and Kensington Publishing for the ARC – This is my honest review. 5 Stars

No Man's Land is the fourth of the FBI K-9 series and the second that I have read. This is a murder mystery with an interesting premise. Urbex or urban exploration is a new concept to me but basically is an activity that people do to observe condemned sites that are left to deteriorate on their own. Explorers are going on these sites periodically to see how much they have changed, not to damage but observe. Meg Jennings and her search and rescue dog, Hawk, of the FBI K-9 unit, Meg's boyfriend and EMS firefighter Todd Webb, and friend/firefighter Chuck Smaill are touring one of these sites, an old hospital, when Hawk hits on the scent of a human. The victim, deceased, was an elderly woman, left to die alone and unable to save herself. This discovery leads to a spree of such killings where the elderly are left at urbex sites to die. Finding out the motive and killer is an undertaking that encompasses a group effort of the FBI K-9 group and FBI agents, Webb and Smaill as well as an investigative reporter and others. This is an interesting and different mystery that is engaging and a page turner. The scenes come to life with a group of friends and colleagues. Highly recommended. I received a complimentary ARC from Kensington Books through NetGalley. All thoughts and opinions are mine only.

Love reading the stories about service dogs especially those who are part of the Human Scent Evidence Team. Agent Meg Jennings and her pooch Hawk are FBI. When they are not actively on a case or a rescue they work to make their skills even better. No Man's Land is the fourth in this FBI K-9 series by Driscoll but they all stand alone story wise. The characters just keep getting more and more vital to this reader. Never heard of Urbexing before which is exploring the dilapidated and dangerous abandoned buildings that were once the boom to the community. Description of these evacuated past structures were made read because of the Driscoll Skill. To make these places even darker, a killer is hiding elderly persons there to die. "A copy of this book was provided by Kensington Books via NetGalley with no requirements for a review. Comments here are my honest opinion." LOOK FORWARD TO MORE IN THIS SERIES!

NO MAN ‘S. LAND.....by Sara Driscoll Love stories with the FBI and special service dogs. This deals with a killer hurting the elderly, abandoned building leaving them there and the killer been at it too long. Meg wants to stop him, and with her team, they have to find a connection to this madman. Good series, and the plot, catches you from the beginning. Given ARC for my voluntary review and my honest opinion by Net Galley and Kensington.
