Overview

There's no end to the drama when Lia stumbles on a dead diva.

Talented, charismatic Dr. Geoffrey Lawrence has manipulated students and staff at Hopewell Music Conservatory for years, destroying lives and careers at whim. No one knows this better than Hannah Kleemeyer, the school admin who plays nanny for the professor's trio of adorable dogs and is witness to the school's secrets.

Lia's mural commission at Hopewell and her friendship with Hannah place her at the center of the drama when the Machiavellian voice professor is murdered, drama heightened by the theatrical tendencies of the suspects and further complicated by the terms of the professor's will.

The solution to Lawrence's murder lies with his many victims, but the detectives assigned to the case are more suited to rousting gang-bangers than eliciting shameful secrets. Meanwhile, a mysterious informant is determined to involve Lia's beau, Detective Peter Dourson. It's a case Peter can't touch now that Cincinnati has created a centralized unit to handle homicides. With Peter hamstrung by departmental politics and the assigned detectives barking up the wrong tree, it will take Lia and the dog park gang to unravel the truth.?

Editorial Reviews

Kirkus Reviews

Newsome writes in a clever, energetic prose that buoys the reader while slowly dispensing clues. ... The characters are well-drawn; the dialogue is sharp and funny; and the pacing is precise. The opening sequence--Newsome has to juggle a dozen different characters milling around a crime scene--is nothing short of masterful. This remains at its heart a series for dog lovers, but even mystery fans who are ambivalent about dogs will be caught up in Lia's latest quest.
