Kay Powell wants to find that break-out client who will become a star. And she thinks she's found him: His name is Bruno, and he has to be walked three times a day.
Kay is the Agent to the Paws, representing showbiz clients who aren't exactly people. In fact: they're dogs. Bruno's humans, Trent and Louise, are pains in the you-know-what, and Les McMaster, the famous director mounting a revival of Annie, might not hire Bruno just because he can't stand them.
This becomes less of an issue when Trent is discovered face down in Bruno's water dish with a kitchen knife in his back. Kay's perfectly fine to let the NYPD handle the murder, but when the whole plot seems to center on Bruno, her protective instincts come into play. You can kill any people you want, but you'd better leave Kay's clients alone.

Animal Entertainment Agent Turns Amateur Detective
It was the title. It made me laugh and then I had to read the blurb which also pulled me in. I could tell this was going to be a fun, light-hearted mystery that wouldn't challenge me, but would entertain me highly. Dog Dish of Doom performed to expectation, for sure.
I have seen Angela from Simply Angela's blog reviews on a different cozy mystery series by this author so I was pleased to give Copperman's work a try in this new series start. What a fun theme for the series having the amateur detective being an animal entertainer agent. Kay is also accompanied in her efforts by her quirky show-biz parents, two rescue dogs, incomparable assistant Consuelo with son Diego, and potential flame and local coffee shop owner Sam.
Kay's an irascible and snarky, down to earth gal who is all about her animal clients even to the point of caring more about their well-being than their human owners or the humans they must work with. This story introduces her latest client, Bruno, who is up to co-star in an off-Broadway production of Annie.
The theater world was a neat backdrop for this mystery that had some nice twists. The story had two mysteries going on actually- the death of Trent and the malevolent interest in Bruno. It paced out slowly as Kay and the gang including a police detective followed the clues to a surprising end.
I listened to Dog Dish of Doom and enjoyed the talented narration of Christy Romano telling the story. This was not my first listen in with Christy. I enjoyed her work earlier this year. She's got a great wry, humorous tone that matched the story well.
In summary, this was vastly amusing and I can definitely recommend it to those who enjoy cozy mysteries. I definitely plan to read/listen to more of Copperman's work and this quirky fun series.

Another Good Series
Like Copperman's other books, Dog Dish of Doom is funny and entertaining with lots of twist and turns. The characters are realistic and well developed. The plot is well written with a steady pace and humor. I look forward to the next book.
