Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"It is Carmichael’s scenic descriptions of the northern Arizona setting, insider’s peek into the world of therapy pets and loveable characters, both human and otherwise, that make this lighthearted romp worth savoring."

If the initials CD bring to mind a dog obedience title rather than audio merchandise or a financial investment, you may well be one of Conant's ( Paws Before Dying ) fans--or one of her canine-obsessed characters. Heroine Holly Winter of Cambridge, Mass., spends her time training her two copiously described Alaskan malamutes, enjoying a courtship with a veterinarian, contributing to dog-lovers' magazines and solving mysteries. In this latest outing, well-regarded veterinarian Oscar Patterson has vanished. Holly's hackles rise as she sniffs out a few suspects, among them a client whose dog died in Patterson's care and an unprincipled trainer whom Patterson had rebuked. As in Conant's other books, mystery takes a distant second to details of doggiedom: the author recommends wholesalers of pet supplies, comments on the terrier personality, advises how best to get a rare breed recognized by the American Kennel Club, and so forth. Conant infuses her writing with a healthy dose of humor about Holly's Fido-loving friends and other Cambridge cliques; the target of her considerable wit clearly emerges as human nature. (July)

'Gone to the Dogs' has the elements of a story that aren't often seen in a mystery. Humor is at every corner of this page-turning masterpiece, with wit, suspense, and a knowledgeable expertise on the canine species shining through.
