Remember Professor Dolittle, who could talk to the animals? Make an entertaining visit to the extraordinary world of the curious Pru Marlowe, animal-sensitive and animal trainer, whose informal sideline in investigation brings her close to danger and crime.

Set in small town America, this is a good thriller in the Pet Noir genre, and will keep you guessing. It's a fun read.
