I started this book assuming that it would be standard animal war stories..... wrong!!!
While there are enough typical vet’s tales of life and adventures in the trenches with all manner of mammalian, avian, reptilian, and amphibian critters, there is a surprising jolt well into the first-person narrative when the protagonist/vet happens into a series of severe potentially mortal conditions displayed by some of her patients.
Much, but not all, of the remainder of the story is
taken up by her attempts to discover the cause of the maladies, all of which present identically. They are scattered over the northeast portion of the United States; the pets in the remainder of the US are healthy: therein presents the problem..... and the story/novel . The vet must unwind the cause of the illness with the mortality clock ticking away for many of the small mammals.
Side story: there is a marriage and the presence of two young pre-teen sons thrown in, for a little extra
I recommend this book with reservations: I NEVER read mysteries or thrillers, so this surprised me. If I had known what type it was, I don’t know if I would have chosen it or not— I’m glad I wandered into the story unknowing .
Recommended— almost, but not completely
highly — recommended. Give it a chance!!
