Tucker Wayne – Former U.S. Army Ranger
Kane – Military trained canine.


Tucker Wayne and his faithful companion Kane are introduced in this kickoff to their own series. The story begins when they rescue a woman. This woman however has a secret tied to Nazi Germany. What secrets does she hold, and what dangers will Tucker and Kane face, to find out read Tracker.


I really loved these characters. I’ve not read a lot of Mr. Rollins works, though I have friends who are devoted followers of his writing. However, the few books I’ve read I’ve found enjoyable. This one is no exception. The characters are well developed, and realistic. Unlike other stories, where the animal is merely there, Kane has an active part in the story and at times is a POV character. That is often some of the more interesting aspects of the story, seeing Kane and his training and thoughts.

Language is a minimum, so all ages will probably find this appropriate. At 83 pages, it can be read in an afternoon, and is a great kickoff to the Tucker and Wayne series, and a good companion series to the Sigma Force of which this is loosely tied. So for a great, quick adventure, pick up a copy of tracker and be sure to drop back by and let us know what you thought.
