Tracking a Killer by Elizabeth Goddard.

Can an officer and her furry partner survive a killer and the wilderness?

When Rocky Mountain K-9 officer Harlow Zane and her cadaver dog, Nell, join the search for a serial killer, the last thing she expects is that she’ll draw the killer’s obsessive attention. But her former academy rival, FBI Special Agent Wes Grey, notices she matches the victim profile. After another look-alike goes missing, they must work together to catch the criminal…before Harlow’s the next to disappear.

My Review

I received a complimentary copy of this book from the author. I was not required to write a positive review. The opinions I have expressed are my own. I am disclosing this in accordance with FTC guidelines.


Tracking a Killer by Elizabeth Goddard is the sixth book in the Love Inspired Suspense Rocky Mountain K-9 Unit series.

Harlow and her cadaver dog Nell are called in to help an FBI join task force with a missing person case. Women with blonde hair and blue eyes are going missing in the Rocky Mountain parks and one of the women has turned up dead. Fearing a serial killer situation, they want to find the most recent victim before it’s too late.

Two things complicate this search: first is that Harlow and the Task Force leader, FBI Agent Wes Grey, have an explosive past, and two, Harlow matches the description of every victim of taken so far. This combination, not to mention the twists and turns of the case itself, adds drama and suspense so that I didn’t want to put the book down. I also love K-9s and Nell is a wonderful part of the story.

If you haven’t read the rest of the series, this book can stand alone. However, it is part of an over-arching story line so that if the series is read all together, it would add depth, particularly with Harlow and Nell since we’d have seen them in other situations. Nevertheless, if you enjoy suspense with a mix of enemies-to-lovers romance, plus an adorable, sweet-natured K-9 working dog, then I recommend grabbing a copy of Tracking a Killer.

  1. Happy Friday!
    I’m just beginning Harvest Moon by Denise Hunter.
    “It was not the sort of day when bad things happened. Eighty degrees. September breeze. Sky expanding, wide and blue, above a canopy of trees. Air thick with the fresh smell of pine and the loamy scent of earth. It was a perfect Saturday.”
    That does sound like a perfect day! I hope you have an excellent weekend.
