He reads Proust...
Surfs the net...
Is the soul of diplomacy...
And when it comes to solving crime,
Randolph is the dog for the job....


Murder has come to Manhattan’s East Village. And when detectives call Harry to the scene, his Labrador instantly smells a rat. Why? Because Harry's missing almost-fiancée—and Randolph's beloved mistress—has been implicated in the murder, which has ties to the U.N. While Harry looks to the spirit world for answers, Randolph goes into detective mode, surfing the Net, tracking down clues, and even landing a job as a "therapy" dog to a depressed diplomat. Suddenly the brainy Lab has done the impossible: he's penetrated the shadowy corridors of the U.N. (which boasts the most vicious, backbiting dog run in the city) in search of a killer. Now it will take all of Randolph's cunning to protect Harry, clear Imogen's name, solve the crime—and stay alive long enough to enjoy his upcoming birthday.

8 out of 10

The follow-up to last year's A Dog About Town comes out of the gate running. And it's a winner! Like the first book in the series, this one is written in the first person from Randolph's point of view. But I was now used to seeing through the eyes (and nose) of a dog by this time! :P

In this installment, Randolph and Harry are still pining after the missing Imogen, but now there's been evidence that she's still alive and in New York City. Though why she was last seen fleeing the scene of a murder, and is now nowhere to be found again, has the police, as well as Harry and Randolph, a bit baffled. Randolph has even been asked to play a part, by playing the role of "therapy dog" to a visiting diplomat who will be staying at the Bed & Breakfast from which Imogen recently fled. Now as a few more dead bodies turn up, Imogen's involvement in this string of murders is questioned, though she still can't be found and brought in for questioning herself. Is this just some elaborate hoax someone is trying to pull? Or is there a reason for Harry and Randolph to be worried?

This was another fun cozy and I look forward to reading more about Harry and Randolph in future books.

hehe You don't get many dog cozy mysteries compared to cat ones. Thanks for offering this Cherie. :)

Maybe the need to do a bunny cozy mystery series next. ;) Although Cynthia Baxter does write a vet one and I think one has Hare in the title. :P
