Murder stalks the rugged Colorado high country--and sends Mattie Cobb on a quest to uncover the darkest secrets from her past in the sixth gripping installment of Margaret Mizushima's Timber Creek K-9 mysteries

A deluge has flooded the high ground near Hanging Falls--but heavy rains aren't the only menace descending on Timber Creek. While on a scouting mission to pinpoint trail damage, officer Mattie Cobb and her K-9 partner Robo stumble upon a body floating at the edge of a lake. Robo catches human scent, which leads to an enigmatic forest-dweller who quickly becomes suspect number one.

With help from veterinarian Cole Walker, Mattie identifies the victim, and discovers an odd religious cult whose dress and manners harken back to the 19th century. As the list of suspects grows, an unexpected visit from members of Mattie's long-lost family sheds new light on her childhood as they help Mattie piece together details of the fateful night when she was abducted at age two.

The tangled threads of the investigation and family dynamics begin to intertwine--but darkness threatens to claim a new victim before Mattie and Robo can track down the killers.

Booklist Review: "Mattie Cobb and her police dog, Robo, return for a sixth time, after Tracking Game (2019). The waters of Colorado's high country are flooding, and Mattie, out scouting for trail damage, finds the body of a man who is identified as a member of a polygamist cult in the area. Angie, daughter of Mattie's love interest, Cole Walker, and Hannah, one of the young girls in their circle, become friends. Another death broadens the scope of the investigation, and the suspect list grows. Hannah goes missing, and, when found, she reveals new information that sends Mattie and Robo on a deadly path that ultimately puts Cole's veterinarian skills to the test. All of this unfolds while a both delighted and terrified Mattie makes plans to meet her sister and grandmother, neither of whom she has seen since she was kidnapped when she was two. Rich in human interest and guaranteed to delight every dog lover, especially fans of Robert Crais' K-9, Maggie, and Paula Munier's bomb-sniffing Elvis. And, of course, Spencer Quinn's indomitable Chet."

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In Mizushima's solid sixth outing for Timber Creek, Colo., deputy Mattie Cobb (after 2019's Tracking Game), Mattie, who's been trying to understand why her parents disappeared and abandoned her to foster care when she was two, learns through a DNA match on an ancestry database that she has a sister and grandmother living in California. On the eve of her trip to see them, she and her German shepherd patrol dog, Robo, discover the bloated body of a man floating in a secluded lake, with the word pay carved on his chest. Mattie cancels her trip in order to focus on the investigation. Not to be deterred, her newfound relatives come to Colorado. Mattie juggles family revelations and developments in her relationship with veterinarian Cole Walker with hunting for a murderer who's lurking in the lush forests around Timber Creek. Fascinating information about the training and handling of police dogs makes up for the obvious mystery plot. Laden with a heavy dose of family drama, this entry will most please established fans. Agent: Terrie Wolf, AKA Literary Management. (Sept.)"
