Mystery Pet Lovers | Mystery Woman Sleuth
It's autumn in Connecticut. Melanie Travis has just
started a new job, and with the added excitement of
showing her standard poodle, Faith, in the fall shows, the
last thing she wants is to become embroiled in yet another
of her brother Frank's moneymaking schemes. His current
brainstorm - remaking an old store in stylish suburban
Fairfield County into a trendy coffee bar - already has
the neighbors snarling. Worse, wealthy Marcus Rattigan,
who's bankrolling the project, is found murdered on the
premises, and the police think Frank did it. Faced with
her brother's imminent arrest, Melanie, always the family
watchdog, has no choice but to take on the investigation.
To her surprise, she discovers that Rattigan had once been
co-owner of a legendary show dog. Drawing on her
connections in the dog world, Melanie is soon successfully
unmuzzling the dead man's nearest and dearest, including a
bitter ex-wife, a spurned mistress, and an ambitious
second in command, all of whom have plenty to say about
the man who worked hard, played to win, and lived by his
own rules. But Melanie is about to learn that being a
watchdog can sometimes be dangerous - especially when
every clue she uncovers leads her one step closer to a
murderer who is desperate enough to kill again...
