Title: The Iris Code

Series: Trackers

Author: Anita Dickason

Genre: Thriller, Suspense, Crime Fiction

Publication Date: June 17, 2024

Publisher: Mystic Circle Books


A local reporter and photographer’s canine search and rescue training at an abandoned farm outside of Fredericksburg, Texas, takes a bizarre twist. Riley Phillips’ dog, Milo, alerts on the real deal—a corpse with a bullet hole in his head.

Riley’s nose for news is already twitching over the gruesome discovery. When the body turns up missing, her spider senses kick into overdrive.

Who doesn’t want the man identified, and why? Are her crime scene photographs the only clue?

What Riley’s camera captured puts the FBI Tracker Unit on high alert, and Riley in a killer’s crosshairs. Learning the identity of the mystery man takes on an ominous urgency.

Can FBI Tracker Cody Lightfoot and Riley find the answer in time to stop a deadly attack? Or will they be the next victims?

My thoughts:

I love Anita Dickason’s books. See my reviews of a few of them here. So when I learned she was writing a new book in her Trackers series, I knew I had to share it!

As her website says, “Anita Dickason is a retired police officer with a total of twenty-seven years of law enforcement experience, twenty-two with Dallas PD. She served as a patrol officer, undercover narcotics officer, advanced accident investigator, tactical officer and first female sniper on the Dallas SWAT team.” Her life experience allows her to write fantastic stories about police investigations and all things crime-related. She writes what she knows, and she does it smashingly.

If you love a well-crafted thriller that will keep you guessing and keep you up late reading, you gotta get your hands on The Iris Code. You don’t have to read all the Tracker novels in order to enjoy any of them. You’d get all the good backstory if you did, but it isn’t essential. (Read one, and you’ll want to read them all.)

It’s coming out June 17, so you don’t have long to wait! And if you want it in your hands on release day, you can pre-order here (this is an affiliate link, so if you order through it, I’ll get a few pennies and say thank ya kindly!).
