If you’re as big an Alex Kava fan as I am and love her Ryder Creed novels even half as much as I do, brace yourselves… there is going to be a fifth book debuting this spring! I know we were all speculating whether or not the previous book, Lost Creed, was the capstone to the series or not, but thank goodness I was right when I reviewed that book and suggested she had more stories to tell about the former Marine and his team of K9 scent dogs. Now here’s what we know so far.

The new novel is titled Desperate Creed and will hit shelves late this spring. The exact release date is yet to be determined, so stay tuned. I’ll get those details out to you as soon as I know them.

What is the story about, you ask? Well, according to Kava, this chapter of the Creed saga takes us to Alabama where Ryder and the dogs are searching for survivors after a series of deadly storms devastate the area. To make matters worse, more storms are on the way, making their venture even more perilous as they dig through debris in an effort to save lives and beat the clock!

Now, if you haven’t read Lost Creed yet, stop reading!

That’s right. There are spoilers ahead.

Okay… you’ve been warned!

For those of you who are caught up on the series so far, you know that in the previous book, Ryder finally rescued his sister Brodie after she was held captive for 16 years. Well, now that she’s back she is wrestling with her personal demons. As you can only imagine, that’s a lot of trauma for a young woman to wrap her mind around! Thank goodness her big brother is there to help.

Meanwhile, FBI Agent Maggie O’Dell is also on the scene, only she is trapped beneath the storm’s rubble… with someone who may or may not be a killer. Jeez, I feel my blood pumping faster already!

Like you, I can’t wait to get my hands on this new book.
