<b>A <i>New York Times </i>bestseller!<br /><br /> National Book Award finalist Sy Montgomery reflects on the personalities and quirks of 13 animals—her friends—who have profoundly affected her in this stunning, poetic, and life-affirming memoir featuring illustrations by Rebecca Green.</b><br /><br /> Understanding someone who belongs to another species can be transformative. No one knows this better than author, naturalist, and adventurer Sy Montgomery.

<b><i>For fans of John Connolly, Nevada Barr, and dogs of all shape and size, the first novel in the new Flint K-9 Search and Rescue Mysteries, from the author of the USA Today-bestselling Erin Solomon Mysteries.</i></b><br /><br />Meet Jamie Flint -- a no-nonsense veteran K-9 trainer and handler with a 'gift' she'd be happy to return: like her dogs, Jamie can sense things the rest of the world is blind to.<br /><br />When teenage sisters go missing in the mysterious 'Bennington Triangle' of Vermont, an area renowned for its disappearances, and strange occurrences over the past hundred years, FBI agent Jack Juarez brings Jamie and her dog Phantom in to assist with the search. When Jack learns that the case shares haunting similarities with the murders of the missing girls' aunts ten years before, he realizes they're dealing with much more than two girls who simply wandered off the beaten path. And when a young girl appears in the shadows, visible to Jamie alone, it becomes clear that something is desperately wrong here. <br /><br /><b>AUTHOR Q&A</b><br /><br />Q. In what ways is Jamie Flint different fromthe main character in your other series, Erin Solomon? <br />A. Jamie and Erin arevery different beasts, to be sure. Where Erin is impulsive and oftenself-centered, Jamie is...well, a mom. Of necessity, I think the fact that shehad her son Bear at such a young age forced Jamie to grow up quickly, and tothink a little more cogently about the possible long-term impact of heractions. She's level headed most of the time (though that gets muddied a bit inTHE DARKEST THREAD, when Bear's life is in danger), more private than Erin, andcertainly a more spiritual woman. <br /><br />Q. Will this series contain cliffhanger endings and a serialized mystery like the Erin Solomon novels? <br />A. No. While I think there's a definite place for serialized novels, and I actually have a 3-book serial in mind for Diggs and Solomon down the road, the Jamie Flint novels will all be standalone mysteries. <br /><br />Q. Do I have to read the Erin Solomon Mysteries to know what's happening in THE DARKEST THREAD?<br />A. Not at all. There are references to happenings in the Erin Solomon mysteries because Erin Solomon and Jamie Flint live in the same world, but you'll get the information you need to know about Jamie and Jack Juarez in this book. At the end, of course, if you would like to know more about these two characters, you can always go back and check out that series. <br /><br />Q. In which Erin Solomon books does Jamie Flint appear?<br />A. Jamie first arrives on the scene in book two, SINS OF THE FATHER. She returns in books four and five, BEFORE THE AFTER and THE BOOK OF J.

At the heart of the amazing journey was the extraordinary relationship they shared, one that blurred the line between man and dog.</p><p><em>Following Atticus</em> is an unforgettable true saga of adventure, friendship, and the unlikeliest of family, as one remarkable animal opens the eyes and heart of a tough-as-nails newspaperman to the world’s beauty and its possibilities.</p>

So, you’ve been ripped out from your mother’s paws and taken in by a strange family of humans that has kids who insist on flapping your floppy ears and dressing you up like a ladybug. These new human-folk are trying to “teach” you things, like sitting or not ripping apart their fun-looking shoes, and you might start to think you should try to “obey.” But I know better; I’ve been around the block and peed on most parts of it. Puppies like you need my—wait, somebody just walked in with a hamburger. Gotta check this out. <br /><br />Ok, back now. Anyway, to survive in this world filled with brown-clad fools delivering packages and leashes, you need my guide to show you what’s what in this dog-eat-dog world of ours. Like dog beds; your human might try to force you to sleep in one of these, but with my sly techniques I can show you how to weasel your way into their clean, fresh-smelling king-sized bed, or even stretch yourself out and have it all to yourself. Those imbeciles might think they are your owner, but you’ll show them who really owns who armed with knowledge on these subjects: <br /><br /> - Advanced barking—how loud and annoying can you go?<br /><br /> - Cars—catch your Moby Dick <br /><br />- Licking—what, where, when, and why<br /><br /> - Biting—ask questions later <br /><br />- Welcoming guests—try not to hyperventilate<br /><br /> - And much more! <br /><br /> Communicating with humans can be difficult, as they are not very smart, but they give you things and throw you balls, so you might as well try to amuse them.
