#BlogTour | #BookReview | SAN DIEGO DEAD (Jake Wolfe #4) by Mark Nolan @marknolan (August 31st 2019) @damppebbles

Welcome to our stop on this blog tour. Thank you very much to Emma @Damppebbles and Mark Nolan for providing a copy of the book to [K]

The review below is 100% honest and all of her own views.


Danger awaits Marine-turned-lawyer Jake Wolfe on his vacation to sunny San Diego and Cabo San Lucas. There he finds sugary white sand beaches, warm turquoise water, boat trips among gray whales, and … cold blooded murder.

It was meant to be a relaxing holiday for Jake and his adopted war dog, Cody, but violence erupts when he crosses paths with a criminal cartel urgently seeking to reclaim a deadly package.

Jake learns the missing item is a threat to US citizens and vows to stop the cartel from possessing it, no matter what vigilante justice actions he might have to take.

Time is running out and thousands of innocent lives are at risk. Will the two combat veterans be able to retrieve the dangerous item before the killers do? The clock is ticking, but Jake hopes that if anybody can help find the package, it has to be his highly-trained and ultra-intelligent dog, Cody.

Find out what happens next. Start reading the latest Jake and Cody thriller right now and enjoy another fast-paced stand-alone story by author Mark Nolan.


When Jake crosses paths with a drugs baron he is drawn into a world of a Mexican cartel who will stop and nothing to reclaim a package that was stolen from them. It is up to him and Cody to find and destroy this deadly item before the cartel, who could trade it to the highest bidder with dire consequences.

Jake Wolfe is a very suave and knowledgeable character. He uses his past Marine experiences to help him complete his missions in the most effective way possible. Cody the war dog knows what is needed of him and when, with or without Jake’s instruction. He has more intelligence than some people I know! Both suffer with PTSD from their former wartime jobs but does not let this stop them from completing their mission. 

I found this to be a very fast paced book and loved that we are given an occasional insight into what Cody is thinking which I found enhances the story. 

This was my first book by Mark, but will not be the last. I need to get more of this series and get my own Cody!
