Novels by Edmond Humm. Book 1 in the Magic series
MAGIC. After many years of secret genetic bioengineering and painful experimentation by the Iranians with a mind to develop the perfect spy, the inconspicuous dog was selected for advanced research after primates proved to be unpredictable and hardly unnoticeable. One of the prime specimens, a big golden retriever, managed to escape and made his way to war-torn Iraq, where he befriended a United States Marine. After the dog saved the Marine's life, he brought it back to the United States and named him Magic. The novel Magic was the first in the Magic dog story series. Magic's Charm was the second, and Wizard the dog that knew Magic is the third in the series.

Magic, the genetically altered golden retriever, wants to find her. "An action filled adventure novel that will keep you turning the pages." Fred Winston His search eventually involves the very highest levels of the government. Action genre enthusiast who enjoyed Magic the genetically altered dog, will love Magic's Charm.
This is my first book review on Kindle. I hope it is helpful. Five stars.
I read the first book in the Magic series awhile back---should have written a review---. Magic's Charm is just as good; however, while the original was chock full of physical action, Magic Charm contains more personal tension for Magic the genetically altered golden retriever, although there is enough action to satisfy patrons of the action genre: terrorist, spies, gun fights, and kidnapping. Magic must make a life altering decision about his identity and, with the help of Ryan Quinn, makes an unselfish choice.
The characterization was compelling and real. By real, I mean the author had me believing that a dog could think at the levels of a human being and still have the traits we all love about dogs: loyalty, dedication, loving nature, and happy to have their ears rubbed. The story moves along briskly and had me clicking the next button on my Kindle.
While Magic's Charm can stand alone as a wonderful read, I believe reading the first book gets one into the story with less hesitation.
Magic will grab your heart strings and hold them tight until the superb ending and leave you wanting more.

The questions were,”Does memory define one’s existence?” He thought not, but If he couldn’t remember who he was, what he’d done in life, who he loved, who he hated, where he lived, where he came from, does he have an identity? If someone or thing robs him of his memory, do they steal his identity? These are the questions, Magic, the gifted Golden Retriever asked himself.
