Goodreads: Cadaver Dog

Author: Doug Goodman

Rating: 4/5 (Really liked it)

Official Summary: “Angie Graves trains dogs on all kinds of scents: guns, bombs, even cadavers. But when she is approached with the idea of training a dog to track zombies, she is not so sure. She needs a different dog for this line of work, and the only one available is a dog named Murder who she rescued when she found him left for dead. The problem is, Murder is nothing like a hero dog. He is scarred emotionally and physically. He is slow to trust, has a mischievous mind, and obsesses over his chicken toy. But if he and Angie can learn to work together, they may be able to solve the riddle of where the zombies come from, and why they are snatching up people.” – Goodreads

Review: I just really like how the Author took a very unique twist on the ‘zombies’. They are more vehicles to be used by the ‘wasps’. Now don’t let that fool you, they are still gross and nasty and evil. Just slightly different than what you would think.

You could really tell the Author knew what he was talking about when it came to the dogs, search and rescue and all the other technically side of things.



Goodreads: Dead Dog (Zombie Dog Series, Book 2)

Published: 27th April 2018

Rating: 4/5 (Really liked it)

Official Summary: “A dog is found dead along a hiking trail in the secluded canyons of Big Bend National Park. One lone Parks Ranger believes there is more to this discovery than a stray dog dying in the desert, for this is a world where the dead hunt the living. To prove he is right, he needs the help of the leading expert in finding the undead and her zombie-tracking dog, Murder.” – Goodreads

Review: End of first book, only one of her dogs died, yet at the start of second all but one of her dogs lived. Really confused me going from one book to the next. I had to double check I wasn’t going insane.

The ‘wasps’ are changing or being controlled was a nice new element to the world. It keeps both you the reader on your toes and Angie. Plus I liked how Murder changed, he wasn’t the same dog in the first book, he had grown a bit into his confidence. That and it felt like he found his role in life. Toy chicken and finding Buzz.

(Over and Out is incorrect military use. You can only have one or the other, never both – Hollywood love to mess this up)
