From a review by the HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER, Grady Harp

The real pleasure of jumping into this mystery is the manner in which Richard Houston writes. Think Garrison Keillor's 'A Prairie Home Companion', a dab of Mark Twain, and a dollop of John Grisham - marinate out in nature, and out comes Houston's style. Not bad ingredients for an author on the rise. 

Jake Martin is not your ordinary sleuth. He's an ordinary guy with an extraordinary dog. This time the story takes place in the foothills of Denver. Jake is accused of manslaughter and he has to prove the accident was really murder. Along the way he encounters a poaching ring and falls in love with a beautiful game warden.

About the Author

Richard Houston worked as a carpenter for 20 years while taking college classes whenever he could. After earning a bachelor's degree in math he spent the next 25 years as a successful software engineer. Although he found success in those professions, he always dreamed of writing a novel. He honed that craft by taking every creative writing class he could. Somehow his poems and short stories usually had a dog as a major character.

Richard now lives and writes at his lake home in Missouri where he and his wife are raising their granddaughter, two dachshunds, and a rescue dog that is mostly Golden Retreiver.

A fun book to read, but sad too. I want to read all the “Books To Die For.”

Truly enjoyed Richard's writing ! Was hard to put down. The last 3 chapters,though, were difficult to follow to figure out who the killer was, I had to reread them. I was sad when Julie died...just seemed too soon. And there were quite a few grammatical errors for sentences & typos. Overall, I did enjoy this book & how Fred was included, looking forward to the next one.
