Publisher's Summary

Still recovering from the traumatic events of the past year, newlyweds Aggie Malone, police chief of Dogleg Island, and Deputy Sheriff Ryan Grady are looking forward to a casual day trip to Wild Horse Island, a nearby nature preserve, with their precocious - and uncannily perceptive - border collie, Flash. But when Flash discovers a body in a shallow grave on the island, and Aggie and Ryan learn of an attack on the park ranger, a tangled knot of conspiracy, murder and deception begins to unfold.

Fifteen hundred miles away, an ex-con and a 15 year old girl embark upon a crime spree that will earn them the nicknames "Bonnie and Clyde". As they make their way inexorably south, Aggie, Grady and Flash are thrust into the middle of a murder investigation that leads to the arrest of one of their neighbors and the attempted suicide of another. When a search of the dead girl's belongings reveals a priceless emerald bracelet and two of the island's most popular residents go missing, the puzzle becomes even more complicated. Grady and Aggie struggle to put all the pieces into place while Flash, ever obsessed with understanding the human condition, wrestles with a more painful dilemma: how do you tell the good guys from the bad guys when they are so often the same person?

Good Plot, Better Narrator

This is a good story. Not a great story, but a well constructed plot with well developed and like-able characters. The insinuation that the dog knows more about what's going on than the people trying to solve the case is amusing (and totally believable to anyone who knows dogs, especially Border Collies!) The narrator of this 2nd book in the series is much better than the first book narrator.

Love this new series

Enjoy Donna Ball's other books and these are even better. Great characters and a good mystery. The narrator is also good. Very enjoyable to listen to.

Wonderful

The Avengers have nothing on Flash, Aggie and Grady. It was a wonderful story I couldn’t put down.

Sigh

Just not as good as the first one and the dogs thoughts became much more far fetched. I was disappointed in the story.

I am in love with Flash

Flash's thought processes are fun to hear. What a smart pup. If only he could talk.

Series quality is maintained. Good book!

It had heart, mystery, and an intelligent dog. Enough quirks to avoid formulaic. Fast. Good pacing and interesting plot. It's at the top of the "well above average mystery" category for me. I will read this series. Held my interest all the way through.
