The Right Side Read Online Free - LeAnne Hogan went to Afghanistan as a rising star in the military, and came back a much lesser person, mentally and physically. Now missing an eye and with half her face badly scarred, she can barely remember the disastrous desert operation that almost killed her. She is confused, angry, and suspects the fault is hers, even though nobody will come out and say it.
Shattered by one last blow—the sudden death of her hospital roommate, Marci—LeAnne finds herself on a fateful drive across the country, reflecting on her past and seeing no future. Her native land is now unfamiliar, recast in shadow by her one good eye, her damaged psyche, and her weakened body. Arriving in the rain-soaked small town in Washington state that Marci had called home, she makes a troubling discovery: Marci’s eight-year-old daughter has vanished. When a stray dog—a powerful, dark, unreadable creature, no one’s idea of a pet—seems to adopt LeAnne, a surprising connection is formed and something shifts inside her. As she becomes obsessed with finding Marci’s daughter, LeAnne and her inscrutable canine companion are drawn into danger as dark and menacing as her last Afghan mission. This time she has a strange but loyal fellow traveler protecting her blind side.

This stand alone book is a departure from Spencer Quinn’s normal fare, which is much lighter in nature. It's the story of Sgt. LeAnne Hogan, who was injured in Afghanistan in an explosion and is now back home. Her memory is as damaged as her face due to a piece of shrapnel in her brain and she's...

How could I not read this? Just look at that cover…..a woman & a dog. It’s not exactly love at first sight but they just might end up saving each other.
When we meet Sgt. LeAnne Hogan, a few things are immediately clear. She has PTSD following a horrific attack in Afghanistan that also cost...

What I loved most about The Right Side is not exactly what I expected to love. I should start by saying that this is not the light-hearted mystery you’ll find in a Chet and Bernie book, Quinn’s other series. This book is deeper and more profound, with a complex leading character that I will be th...

Let me preface this by saying LeAnne Hogan could easily become a favorite character of mine, or in the very least one I would look forward to seeing again (so if you're listening Quinn, take note, cause I don't think I'm alone in this). The thing is, I would not have expected to be saying that ne...

Fantastic! This one is added to my "Best of 2017" list.
This is an outstanding read – it goes onto my “Best Reads of 2017 “list.
If you are expecting another narrative in the style of the Chet and Bernie series – think again. I strongly suggest that you begin this book as if you have just...

The blurb for this novel is far more dramatic than the actual story. I can’t call it false advertising because it does include all the elements listed. LeAnne Hogan is a veteran of several tours of duty in Afghanistan. She has returned Stateside with traumatic injuries. Her right eye is missing,...

This originally appeared at The Irresponsible Reader.
Okay, since I first opened the pages of Dog On It 8 years ago, I've been a Spencer Quinn fan -- it probably took me two chapters to consider myself one. So it's kind of a given that I'd like this book -- but only "kin...

My high school coach always said morons make the same mistake twice and smart people make new ones.
LeAnne shouldered her duffel, kicked her boots to the back of the closet, left the uniforms on the rail. She closed the closet door, trapping Afghanistan in there, like a tiny battle...
