Image of Death in Show: A Dog Walker Mystery

Ellie Engleman’s newest adventure has her using her dog-walking skills and her other special gift in a new environment … the center ring. Ellie is wonderful, insightful and her special way of communicating with her charges makes the reader laugh out loud.

When one of Ellie’s dog-walking clients asks her to come to the dog show for moral support, she agrees. At the time, she can think of no better way to spend the day — until the dog’s handler is killed. And if that’s not bad enough, Ellie’s boyfriend, Detective Sam Ryder, is the primary on the case. Pressed by the dog’s frantic owner, Ellie agrees to step in for the remainder of the show, even though Sam feels it’s too dangerous. But with Sam and his partner running out of leads, Ellie begins to poke around on her own. In the end she is going to need all the help she can get from Sam and her furry friends to solve — and survive — this case. (OBSIDIAN, Jun., 336 pp., $6.99)
