Sara Driscoll is the name used by authors Ann Vanderlaan and Jen Danna. They are the writers of the Abbott and Lowell Forensic Mysteries.

In their real lives, Jen Danna works as a researcher of infectious disease near Toronto at a leading Canadian University. She enjoys spending her time writing fiction that is thrilling and also mysterious.

Ann Vanderlaan lives in the area of central Texas. She has five pit bulls that were all rescued, including her prize dog Kane, who is a therapy dog. Ann trains with Kane doing competitive nose work. It’s safe to say that Ann’s passion for dogs has translated into her work, as Sara Driscoll (collectively Danna and Vanderlaan) is the author of the F.B.I. K-9 fiction mystery series.

Lone Wolf is Driscoll’s first book and was published in 2016. It also has a follow-up, called Before It’s Too Late, published in 2017. The main characters in Lone Wolf include Meg Jennings, a special agent with the FBI, and her K-9 partner named Hawk.

For those of you who don’t know, a K-9 special agent is a very extensively trained dog! Meg Jennings works with Hawk to solve crimes and catch bad people, and Hawk is a talented Labrador that is trained in search and rescue. Hawk and Meg are a part of the elite K-9 unit within the F.B.I.

Hawk is trained to sniff out bodies in any setting and circumstance. He can find living and dead people with startling accuracy thanks to his finely-tuned nose. Hawk can track down a fugitive or a criminal or find a missing person (although sometimes they are dead when they do find them).

Meg and Hawk are put to the task after a bomb explodes in a government building placed on the D.C. National Mall. The search and rescue staff is out in full force and the team works to save visitors and workers that have been trapped but are still alive under the rubble. Now Meg and Hawk must find the person responsible for the attack and some of the largest casualties in history.

The bomber remains at large and as citizens shake off the shock of the experience, there are yet more terror attacks utilizing bombs in other locations and the body count continues to go up. Desperate to stop the killer, Meg and Hawk are brought in by the government and assigned to a task force. The task force’s job is to find and stop the unknown killer as he or she or even they work their way across the Eastern seaboard.

The attacks are spreading out, and when it comes to who is next in the bombing spree, any of the cities or areas in the east coast or anywhere could be the next target. With the attacks spiraling so widely, it’s difficult to tell. All that Meg and Hawk know is that they must use their wits and intuition as well as a large array of skills to track down and find a killer and set the minds of an entire nation at ease.

This crime thriller is quick paced and never fails to disappoint. Meg Jennings and Hawk must find the killer before they strike again. Will they be able to find the person responsible and put them away? You’ll have to pick up the book to find out.

The sequel to Lone Wolf as part of the F.B.I. K-9 series features the return of the F.B.I.’s Meg Jennings and Hawk, her loyal search and rescue dog, who are back to help people.

They are back and after the bombing incident, they could use a break. However, there’s no rest for the wicked as Meg and Hawk must track yet another diabolical killer before they kill another victim.

There are games aplenty to be had in this exciting sequel. Unfortunately, they are all being set up and played by a ruthless and twisted murderer. There are murderers who work at a very base level where it’s blunt trauma and murder, while other killers’ methods and desires are a bit more intricate, and all the more complex and difficult.

A woman is trapped in a box somewhere in the Washington, D.C. area. She is trapped beneath the earth and buried alive, barely breathing in the limited Oxygen that is available to her in the box. Obviously, she has not put herself there; she has been buried alive by a sadistic killer in some type of abhorrent game.

Meanwhile, in Quantico, the F.B.I. gets a coded message from the person who abducted the woman. The killer wants to play a game with the F.B.I., and it seems that they are going to have little choice but to go along if they want to save her. If the task force can decipher the clues, they will be able to locate the grave and thus save her.

With the top cryptologists and crypto-analysts on the case, they work tirelessly to figure out the puzzle. Finally, they crack the code and Hawk and Meg Jennings must rush to get to the scene of the crime before it is too late. But maybe all the clues are not as honest and the game is a bit more weighted than they thought. The killer is at work, and the clues lead them astray. They do solve the puzzle, but it is too late– the woman is dead, a loser in the killer’s horrible game.

The F.B.I. believes that he will contact them again, and they are right. Another message arrives, and another person has been kidnapped and hidden in a location. This is the killer’s pattern. Every abducted person risks dying if they cannot be found, and that’s when the special agent breaks protocol to bring in her sister Cara. Cara is a brilliant person and a genius when it comes to word games and codes, and she works to decipher the clues. Meg’s risking her career, but at this point, she and Hawk cannot let another person die at this guy’s hands.

Will they catch this diabolical villain? At this point, Meg and Hawk must risk it all to catch a killer and bring them to justice, even if it means their jobs.
