The book in question is Shakedown. Of the books I've written, Shakedown holds a special place in my heart, because it deals with retired war dogs and what they've gone through in the combat zone. Here's the blurb:
Captain Kelly Bonham, a NATO electronics officer and combat zone veteran, adopts a war dog, but when Pojo arrives he's not at all what she expected. This German Shepherd isn't interested in rolling over for a tummy rub; he's a working dog, a retired bomb sniffer who saw his handler cut in half by an anti-personnel mine in Afghanistan. That's serious trauma, and Bonnie wonders if his canine brain is still fully functional.
Now she's shaking down a relationship with a dog who has more teeth than the law allows, a dog whose behavior is puzzling and maybe even unhinged. And all she has to bring to the fight is electronic gadgetry and what's left of her self-confidence.
Can she rescue this war dog... or is she missing something?
The book has some lighthearted moments, but it also includes some soul-searching and a canine psychological mystery as Bonnie attempts to sort out Pojo's thought processes. Thing is, I'm not certain which part of the story to emphasize on the cover (which explains entry #4, below). What do you think?
