The Search Book Summary and Study Guide

Detailed plot synopsis reviews of The Search

Sarah Patrick is part of an elite K-9 search and rescue team and she has a golden retriever named Monty who helps her in her job. One of their latest assignments is not like the others because this time she is being forced to take part in a deadly mission by Madden... a man who knows enough about her past to ensure her cooperation. Sarah eventually agreed to help John Logan, whom Madden wanted Sarah to help, to find one of his men named Bassett. But as Sarah helped Logan, her wish not to be involved had been too late because she was already sighted by Rudzak, Logan's mortal enemy, and she too is already on his target list. Nevertheless, Logan is with her all the way ensuring her safety, as he promised, but Rudzak always finds a way to get through to her even it means killing a hundred people. Not wanting to endanger anymore innocent lives, Sarah, Logan and Galen's men will hunt the killer down to put this into an end.
