Another dog tale

I was skimming through the new fiction this morning and, being already attuned to dog-themed things, a book on the mystery shelves caught my eye. It's called Dog Dish of Doom, written by E. J. Copperman, and although I haven't read it, it sounds like a lot of fun. So if reading one of the books from our list for National Dog Day inspired you to keep going, you might check into it! It's apparently the first in a series, so it also holds out hope for future delights, if you like the first one.

Kay Powell is the Agent to the Paws, representing showbiz clients who walk on all fours, wag their tails, and like to fetch. She has just discovered the perfect dog to take over the role of Sandy in the musical Annie. But during her client Bruno's audition, his owner, Trent, makes such a poor impression on the show's director that Trent is banned from the set. Then the plot thickens, when Trent is discovered dead, face down in Bruno's bowl, with a knife in his back.

Now poor Kay is dealing with homicide cops, warding off attempts to kidnap Bruno, and also trying to contain the antics of her own parents, aging actors determined to play detective. Most people on Goodreads agree that this story is doggone good! (ouch)
