Booklist Reviews 2015 November #2

*Starred Review* On a drug-searching mission with her canine partner, Robo, newly trained K-9 officer Mattie Cobb discovers a girl's body and a wounded dog. Recently divorced veterinarian Cole Walker identifies the murdered girl as Grace, a friend of his teen daughter. Set in rural Timber Creek, Colorado, this smart procedural follows both Cole and Mattie as they put aside feelings and prejudices from their pasts to learn who murdered Grace. The operational details about the K-9 unit are fascinating, and the interactions between Mattie and Robo will tug atthe heartstrings of every dog lover. There are also very well realized scenes between Cole and his daughter as they struggle with grief over Grace's death and the absence of Cole's ex-wife. Mizushima's debut reflects both her skill as a suspense writer and her respect for animals. The shocking conclusion will stay with readers while they wait for the next story in the series. Pair this with Robert Crais' Suspect (2013), about an L.A. K-9 unit. Copyright 2014 Booklist Reviews.

Mattie Cobb has returned to her Colorado hometown of Timber Creek as a fully certified K-9 handler, along with her partner Robo, a Russian-bred German shepherd. Called out to investigate suspicious activity, the duo uncover the corpse of a popular teenage girl, accompanied by her wounded Bernese mountain dog, Belle. Cole Walker, the local veterinarian (and single dad), is asked to take care of Belle. Soon it is clear that his own daughter may know more about the case than she is letting on. Meanwhile, Mattie, Robo, and the Timber Creek PD are trying to get a handle on the drug traffic moving through town. Could those strange people out at the new health spa be involved? VERDICT Debut author Mizushima's classic police procedural adds a fresh angle involving the work of K-9s. The appealing Robo knows what he's doing, he just needs to train Mattie to trust him. Sue Henry fans will love.

Deputy Mattie Lu Cobb of the Timber Creek, Colo., Sheriff's Office, the winning heroine of Mizushima's strong debut, has found a calling as the handler of Robo, a German shepherd who's her new police service dog. Robo's discovery of the body of a teenage girl in the mountains outside of Timber Creek leads Mattie to a criminal operation that uses dogs as drug mules. Along the way, the brisk plot delves into the false security of small towns that seem isolated from crime and the grief that permeates the lives of family and friends after a senseless murder. Mattie proves to be a perceptive investigator, and her attraction to a handsome, newly divorced veterinarian is mutual. Mizushima enhances her story with a realistic view of how a K-9 team works, treating Robo as an important character, but never stooping to anthropomorphism. And it's impossible not to fall in love with Robo. Agent: Terrie Wolf, AKA Literary Management. (Dec.)
