THE FRIGHT OF THE IGUANA
by Linda O. Johnston

Genre: Mystery/Suspense/Thriller, Mystery, Amateur Sleuth

RT Rating

This time out, pet sitter, lawyer and super sleuth Kendra Ballantyne is juggling two careers and two love interests while solving mysterious pet-nappings. There are plenty of suspects and colorful characters to keep the story moving, but the mystery is a little weak in places. Kendra's conflicting love interests add drama, though, and the ending is a cliff-hanger that will leave readers looking forward to the next book.

Kendra is dismayed to learn that Saurus the iguana and Zibble the pooch have been pet-napped from one of her high-profile clients during her watch. She's even more disturbed when she learns there have been several pet-nappings in the area. Enlisting the help of her P.I. boyfriend, Jeff Hubbard, and her fellow members of the Pet-Sitters Club of SoCal, Kendra tries to track down the missing critters.

Soon the situation turns deadly when a pet-sitter is found dead and the president of the pet-sitters club is the prime suspect. Kendra now has to catch a killer and bring her animal friends home safely. (BERKLEY PRIME CRIME, Oct., 256 pp., $6.99)
