This old dog can teach the cops new tricks!
In this delightful second book in the wonderful new series created by veteran dog trainer Lee Charles Kelley, a clever kennel owner and his endearing canine companions once again work to solve baffling mysteries.
Ex-New York cop turned kennel owner Jack Field is perfectly happy training dogs and living the simple life in the rustic woods of Maine. But once again, he and his girlfriend Jamie, the smart and sexy local coroner, are dragged into a mystery of remarkable proportions.
When a prominent local judge is found dead in his car, his throat ripped open, with a ferocious boxer locked inside the car with him, all fingers point to the dog as the killer. But when Jack is called in to handle the growling beast, he soon realises that this frightened boxer is no killer, and he's determined to find the real culprit before his doggy friend is put down for the judge's death.
Soon, Jack and Jamie are immersed in a scandal that reaches throughout the town, involving the brazen local marijuana dealer and his delightful brood of ten beagles, Jamie's shady drug addicted ex-husband, twisted family secrets, and an outrageous attempt at blackmail.
Full of wit and originality.
