The next scintillating novel in this acclaimed author's delightful series featuring doggedly determined canine sleuths and their intrepid human companions.
nbsp;
Settling into ranch life with her wire-haired dachshund, Baxter, former Wall Street trader Mags Rogers doesn't miss the world of investment banking--because its destructive tentacles have reached Reno, Nevada, where desperate families are squatting in foreclosed homes without water or electricity. Mags and her gregarious great-aunt Jeep Reed want to help, but they're up against corrupt officials, ruthless politicians--and a merciless murderer. After a former banker is brutally slain, Reno deputy--and Mags's unofficial significant other--Pete Meadows finds evidence of blackmail, shady real estate ventures, and other cutthroat business practices, but the killer seems to hold all the cards. Luckily, Mags and Jeep still have a few tricks up their sleeves: Baxter; Jeep's German Shepherd, King; and some other canine detectives are officially off the leash--and on the hunt.

Not quite as preachy as some of her other books, but still preachy.

Not her usual standard. Too much political commentary.

Well, I like the Mrs. Murphy series a lot better, but this was still fun
(and, strangely, educational).

Too much politics, not enough story.

The story sounded promising, and I like a different series by this author. However, I finally gave up with too much description and too little action.
