Why did I read this?  James Rollins is one of my favorite authors, alone or with others.  This is a follow up to The Kill Switch.

Tucker Wayne and his dog, Kane are back.  Kane is half of a duo of dogs that Tucker had in Afghanistan.  They have retired and are just moving around the country trying to get their footing back.  Tucker is approached by an old companion from his time in country, who is worried about the disappearance of another soldier they both knew.  Tucker agrees to look into it and he travels all over the world following the clues, until he finds out what has happened to so many people who have worked together. Some of the plot reminds me of the James Bond movie Tomorrow Never Dies, with a media magnate manipulating the news for his own ends.
