Publisher's Summary

The story is not your typical murder mystery. The sleuth is not a detective, private eye, or lawyer. He's an ordinary guy with an extraordinary dog.
Jacob Martin is trying to make the best of a divorce and mid-life crisis when he gets a call at two o'clock Sunday morning from his mother. His sister has been arrested for the murder of her fourth husband, and his father is near death. Thus begins an adventure that takes Jake and his golden retriever from their Colorado retreat to a backwater town in the Missouri Ozarks, where they search for cold-blooded killers, a cache of gold coins buried by Jesse James, and the love of a beautiful nurse.

Too much idiot plot

In the hands of a more talented writer the plot might have reached its potential, and in the hands of a better reader the story might have been more entertaining. Too bad this book had the benefit of neither. The only reason I finished the book the dog.

Not what I had hoped for.

Would you try another book from Richard Houston and/or Todd McLaren?

No. I found the continual references to drinking distracting and began wondering is that all these people. The dog even drinks beer in the story.

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

I was glad it was over and have no interest in following this story further.

Would you listen to another book narrated by Todd McLaren?

Maybe

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment.
