"Spencer Quinn speaks two languages -- suspense and dog -- fluently." -- Stephen King Why would anyone break into 19 Gentilly Lane? That's where the Gaux family lives, and everyone knows they have nothing worth stealing. More important, the house is usually guarded by Birdie Gaux's dog, Bowser, a large and handsome fellow with a big set of sharp teeth.Now Birdie is looking worried and Bowser is on the trail of something rotten. Who was behind the break-in? Why is a girl with green hair asking odd questions about what happened to Birdie's dad, a policeman who was killed in the line of duty years ago? Worst of all, why is the whole town starting to stink of limeade aftershave and CAT?!? The death of Birdie's father may be a cold case, but Bowser can tell it's heating up fast. Someone is coming after Birdie and her family, and Bowser must be ready to protect them from anything. Even that awful cat.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Bowser loyally follows his human, Birdie, into a new mystery. Why would someone break into their home, tear it apart, but steal nothing? And why the reoccurring scents of lime aftershave and cat? Bowser happily relates Birdie's quest at least the bits he understands and checks up on the new people in town, including Birdie's mama, back from the oil rig, and Junior, the town ne'er-do-well's son. False leads keep Birdie and Junior guessing as they learn new details about the murder of Birdie's father. The bayou, its colorful inhabitants, the well-paced plot, and Bowser's cheerfully unreliable narration make this a delightful sequel to Woof (2015).--Harold, Suzanne Copyright 2016 Booklist"
