    In Lee, New Hampshire Anne O'Hara owns the Thurston Tavern a bed and breakfast antiques store. Ex-prison guard dog Claudius, a Husky German Shepherd mixed breed, in turn owns Anne. In the few months they've been together they have solved two murder investigations and made the husky acquaintance of the new detective in town Gus Jackson.

    Anne's closest friend Cary hires her to locate the man who broke into her car and stole her jacket with her grandfather's medal pinned to it. Claudius finds the perp, dead in the middle of a frozen lake. When they go to retrieve the jacket and medal, Anne finds a miniature that was stolen from the nearby Fox Hill prep school. The dead perp's sister is killed shortly there after and Anne believes all these acts are linked, including the death of an elderly teacher shortly after the robbery in the school. Annie decides to do a little investigating, aggravating Gus while getting herself in deep trouble.

    It's too bad that dogs don't read because Claudius is a credit to his species and would make canines very proud. His human is a terrific person who knows that no matter how hard she tries to hide it from herself, Claudius rules the roost. The mystery is lighthearted fun that will appeal to amateur sleuth lovers everywhere as Ann Campbell's latest novel stars a well-matched sleuthing duo.
