When Pru Marlowe takes a dog for a walk, she doesn't expect to find a body. But Spot, a service dog in training, has a good nose that leads her right to the remains of a beautiful young woman. Despite her best instincts, Pru can't avoid getting involved. The young woman seems to have been mauled by a wild cat, but Pru knows there have been no pumas in the Berkshire woods for years. And while Wallis, Pru's curmudgeonly tabby, seems fixated on the idea of a killer cat, Spot has been sending strange signals to Pru's own heightened senses, suggesting that the violent death was something more than a tragic accident. As motives multiply, a cougar of a different sort sets her eyes on Pru's sometime lover, and another woman disappears. With panther panic growing, Pru may have to put aside her own issues - and her own ideas of domesticity - to solve a savage mystery.

Great narration, Same series flaws
- Karen K
Imaginative mystery and Dr Doolittle in one
Right at the top of my A+ list.
When Spot blocks Pru from walking forward when there is danger ahead. Really shows how wonderful these helper dogs are and how they can be totally trusted by someone that has to rely on them completely.
OMG Tavia Gilbert is fantastic. I love everything about the way she handles the entire series. Her animal depictions are wonderful and all her other characters really come to life under her narration.
Can't say there is a particular moment. I just enjoy the animal interactions with Pru.
Although I love animal books like Pru Marlowe I think that the narration by Tavia Gilbert is 99% of my enjoyment just by the way she interprets the story.
