Mystery Private Eye | Thriller P.I.

Something terrifying is happening to the dogs in the mountain community of Mason County, Virginia. Pets are vanishing mysteriously and "Missing Dog" posters cover the waiting room walls at Dr. Rachel Goddard's veterinary clinic. A pack of feral canines roams at night, attacking livestock in a desperate search for food. Now a prominent physician, Gordon Hall, has been found dead in his yard, his throat torn open. Sheriff's Department investigator Tom Bridger believes the killing was premeditated murder, with a trained attack dog as the weapon. Are these seemingly coincidental events related somehow? Tom thinks they are, and he suspects they're connected to the resurgence of an old problem: illegal dog-fighting. Dr. Hall's son insists that the feral dogs killed his father, and he organizes a group of men to find and shoot the animals. Rachel and her friend Holly Turner make enemies by trying to rescue the dogs and move them to the sanctuary Holly has created. Tom, in love with Rachel and worried about her safety, must divide his time between the feral dog problem, the search for the dog-fighting operation, and the hunt for Gordon Hall's killer. Does one of Hall's five children-three adopted, all emotionally starved by their parents-hold the key to his murder? Why is the youngest Hall child so frightened that she begs Rachel, a stranger, for help? Tom and Rachel face two killers, one human and one canine, and discover a more complex web of lies and brutality than they ever imagined.
