Would you recognize a serial killer if you met one?

Talked to one every day? Artist Lia Anderson doesn't, and neither does anyone else who frequents the Mount Airy Dog Park. When Lia's boyfriend, Luthor, dies violently, Detective Peter Dourson is assigned to the case.

Peter penetrates the close-knit group of dog lovers with the help of Viola, the dead man's dog. The more he learns, the more he is convinced that someone is not who they seem.

As the investigation uncovers Luthor's secrets, Lia struggles to make sense of her feelings about Luthor and her growing attraction to Peter.

Meanwhile, a killer hides in plain sight and anyone can become a target.

    I like to play the Whodunnit Game when reading mysteries, and I rate the books on how quickly I figure out the killer. I'm confident I pegged the killer early on, in this book, but there were so many twists, turns, and misdirections that I enjoyed the book anyway. I'm looking forward to the next one.
  • This book is really good!:)

    A real twist and turner kept me turning pages and trying to guess Who done it. I loved it. Of coarse, the end is why I gave the final star.

    A fun read, but, turned off by all the political commentary.

    A lady at the dog park in Cocoa Beach mentioned your books and I will pass your name on to others. A fun read, just enough reference to the dogs and their personalities to have an understanding of dog rules.......just enough intrigue to wonder if she was going to be caught.....nice , entertaining diversion.
  • Really enjoyed this book

    Interesting characters, good plot line. It didn't bother me that the real killer wasn't revealed. Maybe a ploy to get you to read the next one, but it works, because now I want to keep reading... I actually kind of enjoyed the fact the mystery wasn't wrapped up in a tidy little package.
  • Don't read it

    Waste of time. Doesn't even show who the killer is! I dared but don't dare. Trust me.
