Into the Wild

Read Burning Man (Gideon and Sirius #1) Online Free - LAPD cop Michael Gideon and his police dog partner Sirius became reluctant celebrities after capturing a notorious serial killer in the midst of an inferno. For their heroism, they were chosen to head up the newly formed Special Cases Unit. Now the duo tackles out-of-the-ordinary cases, anything deemed unusual or bizarre even by Hollyweird standards.

When a teenager is found crucified in a city park, Gideon and Sirius are handed the bizarre case. Confronting the gruesome tableau and having to work the case worsens Detective Gideon’s PTSD, a condition he has tried to hide from others. Gideon’s burns may have healed, but the fire haunts him still...in more ways than one.

Eerily prescient since that terrible night of the fire, Gideon has unusual insights into the crimes he investigates, a skill he and Sirius must learn to trust as much as they do each other if they are to solve—and survive—this case.

Since the average rating on this book is over 3.5 stars, many of those who read/reviewed/rated it must have enjoyed it. My experience has been different. This review may contain some spoilers, but really, who cares? When a book is this bad it doesn't matter. Cons Dialog: To say the dialog was soph...

Just a few pages into this mystery, I stumbled over the writing itself - inconsistent verb tenses, coupled with an over-reliance on passive verbs. It definitely distracted me more than a few times, but the never-failing charm of Detective Michael Gideon and his German Shepherd partner, Sirius, dr...

 I have received an ARC of this book through a GoodReads FirstReads giveaway. This book is by far one of the best I've read in awhile. From page one I was sucked in, and when I wasn't reading, I couldn't wait to get back to it. You can't help but like, and root for the main character in this stor...

Police detective Michael Gideon, and his K-9 partner, Sirius, have literally been through the fires of Hell. After surviving serious burns, the two are put on a Special Cases assignment. Even having Sirius on the force is unusual after his injuries, but Gideon refuses to be separated from him. One...

Not a fast paced mystery by any stretch. This novel seemed to be designed to set up our knowledge of the main characters for future stories. Still, decent character development and I can see reading more of Russell's work.

When I was offered the chance to get this book for 99 cents as an "earned credit" at Amazon.com, I read the synopsis, checked customer reviews and learned that author Alan Russell, the author of 10 books, has won several writing awards. Satisfied that my almost-dollar probably wouldn't be wasted...

Starts out promising with an effective if sentimental tale of a cop and his dog. The murder that follows and the illogic of the suspects begins to grate, the snappy repartee, the ripped off Hannibal Lecter trope, and the romance all are more of the same. Specifically, his romance with the woman wh...

Alan Russell may be the most underrated, least well-known best-selling thriller writer around. I met Alan at Bouchercon in Pasadena in 1992, and he’s been turning out books ever since. I hadn’t read one of his for a long time until picking up BURNING MAN, recently released by Thomas & Mercer....

LAPD cop Michael Gideon and his police dog partner Sirius became famous for capturing a serial killer in the midst of an inferno. Both suffering burns and then they did rehab together. When they were both able to come back to work a new unit was designed for them- to tackle out even the most biza...

Almost anything with a realistic dog/handler connection works for me and this is a very good example. The police procedural/mystery is good, the trauma/PTSD the main character battles is handled well and the interaction between the main character and the dog are excellent. Two things dropped this...
