Overview

What if I died and came back to life as my own dog?
In Susan Conant's third dog lover's mystery, Dog's Life columnist Holly Winter is writing a story based on that improbable premise when she's interrupted by an urgent summons to rush to the aid of feminist psychotherapist Elaine Walsh, whose wild-acting Alaskan malamute, Kimi, has driven Elaine to take refuge on her kitchen table. Elaine inherited Kimi when a patient, Donna Zalewski, apparently committed suicide. Before long, Elaine, too, is found dead—of a fatal overdose of the same prescription drug that killed her patient.
Is a murderer targeting Kimi's owners? Or is Kimi the intended victim? Since the orphaned Kimi is Holly's dog now, Holly needs to find out who's next on the killer's hit list—¬¬¬¬and to protect herself and Kimi, she needs to find out fast!
While trying to convince her first malamute, Rowdy, to accept the tough, pushy Kimi and while persuading the uncivilized Kimi that Rowdy has rights, too, Holly now realizes that Kimi, her radical-feminist malamute, is the key witness to both murders, a canine witness whose testimony no one but Holly understands.
In pitting canine authenticity against human deceit, A Bite of Death offers a wry and hilarious take on men, women, dogs, and female empowerment.
This 2011 edition opens with a new preface by the author.
