Publisher's Summary

Still recovering from the traumatic events of the past year, newlyweds Aggie Malone, police chief of Dogleg Island, and Deputy Sheriff Ryan Grady are looking forward to a casual day trip to Wild Horse Island, a nearby nature preserve, with their precocious - and uncannily perceptive - border collie, Flash. But when Flash discovers a body in a shallow grave on the island, and Aggie and Ryan learn of an attack on the park ranger, a tangled knot of conspiracy, murder and deception begins to unfold.

Fifteen hundred miles away, an ex-con and a 15 year old girl embark upon a crime spree that will earn them the nicknames "Bonnie and Clyde". As they make their way inexorably south, Aggie, Grady and Flash are thrust into the middle of a murder investigation that leads to the arrest of one of their neighbors and the attempted suicide of another. When a search of the dead girl's belongings reveals a priceless emerald bracelet and two of the island's most popular residents go missing, the puzzle becomes even more complicated. Grady and Aggie struggle to put all the pieces into place while Flash, ever obsessed with understanding the human condition, wrestles with a more painful dilemma: how do you tell the good guys from the bad guys when they are so often the same person?

Good Plot, Better Narrator

This is a good story. Not a great story, but a well constructed plot with well developed and like-able characters. The insinuation that the dog knows more about what's going on than the people trying to solve the case is amusing (and totally believable to anyone who knows dogs, especially Border Collies!) The narrator of this 2nd book in the series is much better than the first book narrator.

Wonderful

The Avengers have nothing on Flash, Aggie and Grady. It was a wonderful story I couldn’t put down.

Flash has POV paragraphs throughout

I enjoyed the story. This is a good cozy mystery. No sex and not too many grim details.

Writer

I so enjoy your books. Sure glad that you’ve got Donna Postel now narrating the rest of the stories. She is the best. I am waiting for Raiyne and her next adventure in the Stockton Raiyne series

Wonderful family mystery

For a peaceful and entertaining story this fits the bill. In a world of chaos, listening to Flash’s adventures is like a nerve pill for the ears.
