    Good characters.

    It's not like she's going to do anything dangerous... When Detective Peter Dourson arrests that nice stranger for the brutal murder of a dog park regular, he begs his girlfriend, artist Lia Anderson, to stay out of it. But her best patron takes the woman under her wing, and Renee insists her new friend needs help. Lia isn't going to do much, just ask a few questions. Surely that won't lead to trouble. Besides, she's got an escape-artist foster dog to deal with. Then there's Peter's desire for a commitment she's not ready to make.
