Author's Note: There are NO explicit dog fighting scenes in this book! Mutilated dogs tossed in dumpsters and savaged humans found dead—they have one thing in common: both were killed by dogs. As the body count--both human and canine—rises, Sergeant Nita Slowater and the Special Crimes Team race against time to stop dog fighters who are using canines to murder. Then a street kid turns up dead. Can Nita and her fiancée Dawn keep the kids safe? With the help of UC Davis Canine Forensics, Nita and the Special Crimes Team close in on the perpetrators. Will they be in time to keep another innocent—canine or human—from dying?
