Emily Kimelman's Sydney Rye series of mysteries feature a strong female protagonist and her canine best friend Blue. It is recommended for the 18+ who enjoy some violence, don't mind dirty language, and are up for a dash of sex. Not to mention an awesome, rollicking good mystery!
Death in the Dark is the second story in the Sydney Rye series. It is a novella length adventure that picks up right where the first book, Unleashed, left off.
Humbolt is hiding not only from the law, but also her own memories. This isolated life doesn't last long when a visit from a dangerous man helps Joy to accept her new identity as the Private Detective, Sydney Rye.
To complete the transformation, Joy must learn to control her emotions as well as her giant aggressive dog Blue. With the help of an expert trainer, Joy learns to fight with her mind as well as her body. However, when the daughter of a close friend is brutally murdered in the desert, Rye turns away from her mentor to seek revenge. Sydney's quick temper and deadly intentions lead her into a trap that she will need all of her new skills to survive.

I enjoyed this follow up to Unleashed. At first I wished it would have been Mulberry who joined Sydney on her adventure, but really liked Merl. I know it was a novella, but it was almost too short. That's ok though, I look forward to the next installments.
A change of scenery for Ms. Rye.
Another growth spurt of her character, though she has much left to learn
About herself. Looking forward to her expanding horizons in England
