Summary
This classic British whodunit—book one in the Oxford Dogwalkers' Mystery series—"will delight Susan Conant and Laurien Berenson fans" (Library Journal). Anna Hopkins's daily walk through Oxford's picturesque Port Meadow is rudely interrupted one autumn morning when her white German Shepherd, Bonnie, unearths a blood-soaked body in the undergrowth. For Anna it's a double shock. She knew the victim. Naomi Evans, a professional researcher working on a book about a famous Welsh poet, had offered to help Anna trace Bonnie's original owner. From her previous interactions with Naomi, Anna is convinced that she was not the random victim of a senseless murder, as the police believe. Naomi was targeted because of what she knew. With the official investigation heading in the wrong direction, Anna teams up with fellow dog walkers Isadora Salzman and Tansy Lavelle to discover the truth. This mystery series for adult readers is an intriguing departure for award-winning YA writer Annie Dalton. Dalton is the author of more than thirty novels for children and young adults, including the Angels Unlimited series. She has twice been shortlisted for the Carnegie Medal. "An inventive plot, charismatic characters, and even some black humor combine to make this a good choice for suspense junkies." —Booklist "Dalton's adult mystery debut is filled with amusing characters." —Kirkus Reviews
