A novel by

Ryder Creed and his dogs have been making national headlines after intercepting several major drug stashes being smuggled through Atlanta's airport. But their newfound celebrity has also garnered some unwanted attention.

When Creed and one of his dogs are called in to search a commercial fishing vessel, they discover a secret compartment. But the Colombian cartels' latest shipment isn't drugs. This time, its cargo is human. To make matters worse, Creed helps one of the cartel's drug mules escape - a fourteen-year-old girl who reminds him of his younger sister who disappeared fifteen years ago.

Meanwhile, FBI agent Maggie O'Dell is investigating a series of murders - the victims tortured, killed, and dumped in the Potomac River. Maggie suspects they are the work of a cunning and brutal assassin. But by the time she uncovers a hit list with Creed's name on it, it might be too late...

Praise for this book

"Bristling with unrelenting suspense, 'Breaking Creed' by Alex Kava hurls retired Marine Ryder Creed on a harrowing search for smugglers who've been using children as drug mules. Creed is special, a memorable character - he trains homeless dogs to sniff out contraband and hunt criminals. When he teams up with Kava's iconic FBI forensics specialist Maggie O'Dell, you'll discover the most exciting crime-solving duo of the year." - Gayle Lynds

"I'm always first in line for the next Maggie O'Dell novel, but Alex Kava's latest, BREAKING CREED, simply blew me away, mostly with the introduction of a character who can finally and truly stand toe-to-toe with O'Dell. Ryder Creed--along with his dogs!-- is a true inspiration: tough, smart, dynamic. The pairing of Creed and O'Dell elevates this thriller to the next level. It left me both breathless and awed. For any dog lover, it's a must-read. For any lover of nail-biting suspense, it's a book you'll not be able to put down. Get it now!" - James Rollins
