There is nobody quite like professional dog walker Ellie Engleman as she talks to her canines and hears what her four legged friends have to say. It is a gift she hides from people so they will not commit her, but it is a prime reason her business is a success. One of her paw pals is Lulu the Havanese who is a strong candidate for champion ribbons at the Mid-Atlantic Canine Challenge held at the Javits Convention Center. At the show, Lulu's handler dies. The police arrive with Ellie's boyfriend Detective Sam Ryder as the lead investigator who hopes he can Ellie her from snooping. Before she even learns that the handler's death was probably a homicide, Lulu's owner Mrs. Flora Steinman asks Ellie to be the handler in the competition. After surviving that ordeal, Flora thinks the cops are working too slowly on solving who murdered Arnie Norris, so knowing Ellie has solved some homicides before asks her to investigate. Ellie agrees placing herself in the crosshairs of a killer. Although the police are unsure whether a homicide occurred, the audience knows from the onset the cause of death. The fascination in the latest Dog Walker Mystery lies with the unknown toxin, the method of delivery and the motive. Readers will enjoy the latest escapades of the heroine who frustrates Sam as she plunges into another amateur sleuth whodunit (see Hounding the Pavement and heir of the Dog) while her dog Rudy and her canine clients add amusing antics to the mix.

If you like dogs and mysteries, Rita Mae Brown Sister Jane series this is the series for you. I liked the characters and am enjoying seeing where they go. The plot is a tad predictable (I was able to figure it out pretty quickly) but I kept reading anyway, because of the characters. Michele

This is the third book in the series and as expected, they just get better! I love Ellie and her relationship with Rudy and her "charges" and Luci "Dog Show Diva" was a delightful addition to the crew. Her "just stand back and let me do my thing" attitude is a hoot...and then there's Rudy's infatuation with the high-class Luci. I'm trying hard not to spoil anything, but be prepared for the scene where Ellie sees Mr. T's choice of "attire"...just about worth the price of admission alone! We know early on the basic crime & how it's done...we think...but Judi takes us through twists and turns to the solution of the mystery. All I can say is "Judi, write faster!" Waiting for the next installment is too hard!
