Our canine hero is back on duty . . .

Our canine hero is back on duty . . .

When injured war hero Charlie finally returns to SAS service, he no longer needs Caesar's help as a care dog. Caesar can go back to being a super-sniffing explosive detection dog in the Australian Army.

On their first mission back together, Caesar and his handler, Ben, discover a bomb at the Sydney Opera House, targeting the visiting secretary-general of the United Nations.

A fortnight later, while on a peace mission in Afghanistan, the secretary-general's helicopter goes down and he is captured by the Taliban. Caesar, Ben and Charlie join an international team to rescue him. Will they succeed? An experimental mini-submarine might help – and Caesar's famous nose is sure to sniff out trouble along the way.

Reviews

This action-packed adventure will satisfy animal lovers and military enthusiasts alike. Caesar is easy to love and admire, and he really shines at showing the greatness behind military service dogs.
