Former Army MP Mercy Carr and her retired bomb-sniffing dog Elvis are back in Blind Search, the sequel to the page-turning, critically acclaimed A Borrowing of Bones

It’s October, hunting season in the Green Mountains—and the Vermont wilderness has never been more beautiful or more dangerous. Especially for nine-year-old Henry, who’s lost in the woods. Again. Only this time he sees something terrible. When a young woman is found shot through the heart with a fatal arrow, Mercy thinks that something is murder. But Henry, a math genius whose autism often silences him when he should speak up most, is not talking.

Now there’s a murderer hiding among the hunters in the forest—and Mercy and Elvis must team up with their crime-solving friends, game warden Troy Warner and search-and-rescue dog Susie Bear, to find the killer—before the killer finds Henry. When an early season blizzard hits the mountains, cutting them off from the rest of the world, the race is on to solve the crime, apprehend the murderer, and keep the boy safe until the snowplows get through.

Inspired by the true search-and-rescue case of an autistic boy who got lost in the Vermont wilderness, Paula Munier's mystery is a compelling roller coaster ride through the worst of winter—and human nature.

Very enjoyable book. The characters and storyline kept me engaged and entertained. This is the second book in the series but I didn't feel like I missed anything by not having read the first book. I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. My thoughts and opinions are my own and without bias or favor.

law-enforcement, murder-investigation, K-9, protective-dogs, search-and-rescue, autism-spectrum, small-town, Vermont Elvis the Belgian Malinois is a retired US army MP with two tours in Afghanistan behind him, just like his human partner, Mercy. Susie Bear, the beautiful Newfoundland dog is a search and rescue specialist working with her Fish and Wildlife warden, Troy. The good natured bazillionaire with the magnificent compound in Vermont has a group of old friends out for legal hunting on his property, but it turns out very badly with the first murder. Even worse, the murder was witnessed by a young boy who has enough problems of his own and becomes targeted by persons unknown. Thankfully, he has both protectors enjoying and guarding him while their partners go about doing the detecting. Lots of plot twists and red herrings to keep things crazy! A good read that grabbed me by the brain and wouldn't let go until finished! I requested and received a free ebook copy from St Martin's Press/Minotaur Books via NetGalley. Thank you!

Oh, what a tangled web we weave, when first we practice to deceive! Blind Search is a terrific mystery. Mercy & Elvis are back and entangled in another murder mystery and keeping a special little boy safe. This story takes place in Vermont in the autumn and the location is as much a part of the story as the suspects. I really enjoyed this story and look forward to more adventures with Mercy & Elvis.

Mercy and her valiant k-9 Elvis find themselves deeply involved in the hunt for a killer when a hunting party on her wealthy neighbor Daniel's estate goes badly wrong and one of the guests is shot and killed by an arrow. Mercy and Elvis, along with game warden Troy and his dog Susie Bear then find 9 year old Henry, an autistic boy who has seen something- what they aren't sure about but they know it was something. All of the guests for the weekend, who were there to make decisions about a ski resort, are under the microscope and then another guest is killed. And then Mercy, Daniel, and others comes under attack. Old secrets play an important role here - and the answer came as a surprise to me. Munier takes good advantage of her Vermont setting. The main characters are delightful but if I have a quibble, it's that I had a hard time keeping track of who was who on the suspect list. Thanks to the publisher for the ARC. A good read that's fine as a standalone. I'm looking forward to the next one.
