The Controller - Book 1

One man’s courage could save man’s best friend…

Pete is trying his best to get on the right side of the tracks. Dog-napping spoiled pets for ransom money seems harmless, and he could really use the cash. All he has to do is locate targets with his drone and tell the gang where to find them. It’s easy money, until Pete learns what’s really happening to the dogs…

When the gang starts to sell the canine captives as bait for an underground fight ring, Pete changes sides in a hurry. With help from local detective Amanda Lacey, they have one chance to hatch a daring rescue. But will they be in time to save the kidnapped dogs from torment and certain death?

The Controller is a mystery novella set in the Detective Amanda Lacey series of novels. If you like small-town crime dramas, authentic characters, and dogs, then you’ll love this thrill-ride from international bestselling author Linda Coles.

A little more about The Controller.

This is the first book , a short book, in the Detective Amanda Lacey series and sees her investigating a crime of dogs going missing and ransom demands. Together with the help of a local businesswoman and an online noticeboard, they crack the case. But that’s not the only thing that happens as the two find they click together in more ways than one.

Without giving the details away, there is no gore in this book, it’s left to your own imagination through the storyline, and I know you’ll enjoy it. Animal cruelty is something I can’t abide and I regularly donate to my local animal shelter.

It’s a quick read, about a third of the size of my other novels, and a great way to meet the characters.
