New to the historic town of Metamora, Indiana, Cameron Cripps-Hayman is looking to make friends with her neighbors.What she isnt looking for is one of their bodies floating in the canal.
When she and her estranged husband, the town sheriff, are both suspected of murder, Cameron takes crime solving into her own hands, teaming up with her eccentric group of volunteers who dub themselves The Metamora Action Agency.
As if hunting for a murderer with two high school geniuses, the town drunk, and an elderly kleptomaniac isnt hard enough, Cameron adopts the five mangy guard dogs of her deceased neighbor. But maybe a stint at playing gatekeeper is just what she needs to come face-to-face with the killer and save another neighbor from being the next victim.

The plot is very, very good in this one. The dogs are fun, the mystery is difficult to solve, and all the characters make this a great afternoon read. Suspense Magazine
