Publisher's Summary

Co-author of the best-selling Mrs. Murphy novels, Rita Mae Brown launches a new series with this first mystery featuring Baxter the wirehaired dachshund.
When Baxter and his owner, Mags, leave New York for Nevada, they find themselves embroiled in a real head scratcher. First, the local water-pumping station is sabotaged. Then, a murdered man’s bones - dating back to the 1800s - are unearthed in a barn owned by Mags’ great-aunt. As Mags attempts to put the pieces together, Baxter readies himself to protect her at all costs.

A Nose For Justice: A Novel

Johanna Parker did a great job narrating this book. This is a change for Rita Mae Brown and I hope maybe a new series. I read Brown for her interesting animals trying to led the humans to the answer of a murder and her intertwining history into the story. Over the years she seems to get on a soap box over political issues. The political message in this book is an important one of water usage and conservation. Her other books take place in Virginia but this one takes place in northern Nevada, an area I know the history and geology. So I did catch an error in geography. This story is short and makes a nice break between longer and more intense stories.

Bring back Sneaky Pie...

I am a huge fan of Rita Mae Brown's Mrs. Murphy series, but I haven't been able to get into any of her other books. This one is no exception. The characters didn't have the depth and richness that I have come to expect (attributed to Sneaky Pie's influence!) and the plot wasn't as interesting. The narration was fine but not outstanding. Sneaky Pie is obviously the superior writer!
