Product description

About the Author

The author is a Professor of Pulmonary and Critical Care Medicine at the University of California's Medical School at Davis, near Sacramento in Northern California. Jerry, a two-time winner of The Indie Book of the Day Award, writes fast paced “tweener” mystery books (tough mystery stories that follow the cozy conventions of no graphic sex and no cussing), all published as e-books on Amazon Kindle. Several of the books introduce the readers to South America, a region where he has lived and worked that is a long way from home for most English speakers. He and his wife Elaine lived previously in Salta, Argentina and Montevideo, Uruguay. Jerry and Elaine breed prize-winning German shorthaired pointer dogs; Elaine also provides technical advice for Jerry’s dog-related novels like The Deadly Dog Show and Hunter Down, as well as editing for all of the books.

This is the latest installment in the Roger and Suzanne Bowman Mysteries. This time they are somewhat closer to home though. Roger has been asked to investigate shady goings on at dog shows by the CEO of the AKC (American Kennel Club). They are lent a prizewinning dog, and Bruce gets to step out of his Nanny role and extend his skills as a dog handler. Suddenly, though, they find themselves knee deep in murder, drugs, stalkers and attempted drivebys. Have Roger and Suzanne got too close to the truth? Can they solve the mystery so some sort of normality can resume?

This is the latest of the Roger and Suzanne Mysteries and also the longest. This is necessary though as there is a lot of story and ground to cover. Once again, although it is the latest in the series it does work well as a standalone with no previous knowledge of the books before it, but to get a sense of the characters I would recommend reading them in order. This time the world of Dog Shows is at the forefront. It is an interesting subject, one I am interested in, and so got into the story right away. The pace was unrelenting, and I found myself page turning like a mad woman. The whodunnit aspect was well played out, and I was quite surprised when the culprit was revealed - the mark of a good thriller in my mind. Well done Jerry, another belter! Here's hoping there are more.

I received a complimentary copy oft his book in exchange for my honest review.

I'm not a particular lover of dogs so my reason for choosing this book was because I'd read a previous Roger and Suzanne mystery by the author and wanted to read another. Nonetheless, I was fascinated by all the information about dogs, dog shows, dog training and the American Kennel Club. It appears to be a very different world from the British doggy world.
The characters are easy to relate to and my particular favourite is Bruce, the nanny.
An easy, enjoyable read and I look forward to reading more in the series.

5.0 out of 5 stars Best in Show 4 Aug. 2013
By CA reviews - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed the storytelling vibe of the latest mystery featuring Los Angeles PI Roger Bowman and his cast of interesting characters--brainy wife Suzanne, gay former Seal and current nanny/chef/jack-of-all-trades Bruce, and junior detective/former spook Vincent. In this novel in the series Bowman is hired by the AKC board of directors to investigate funny business with regard to dog shows in the western US and Roger will tell us how the case goes every step of the way.

As a narrator, Roger leans heavily on description, with much of the dialogue following that formula for consistency, and some of his wry observations are true gems. In particular, don't miss the descriptions of the different board members of the AKC, which are very clever with several laugh-out-loud bits.

Mystery lovers will appreciate the homage paid to Robert B. Parker's Spenser series, with Bowman talking to a woman who wants to hire him but can't give specifics a la the opening of many Spenser novels, and the Pearl the Wonder Dog breed selected to be the canine star of the book.

Dog lovers, especially those who know anything about show dogs, and those who like their mysteries more cerebral than noir--although be ready for a surprising bit of raw action towards the end--will enjoy this book.
4.0 out of 5 stars HIGHLY RECOMMENDED FOR JUST ABOUT ANYONE. 12 July 2016
By Amir - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is the second book I've read by the author and I must say, ever more enjoyable. Not being a dog owner I was pleasantly surprised and taken by these amazing animals. I found much of the dialogue interesting and I dare say Hilarious!!, like the description of the fat rich guy in his 50s screaming "I drink far too much!". I felt the character descriptions were almost classic, but would have liked to see much more dialogue between the characters, like a rapid ping-pong back and forth as one sees in real time in real life, and perhaps a little less description of events or the scence. Being an amateur fiction writer myself, I struggle a lot with this issue and especially in the current book I am writing (my first one). Without hesitation, I would recommend this book to all and anyone ... even if you are not a dog owner.
4.0 out of 5 stars Authentic dog show mystery! 21 Dec. 2013
By Sharyn Hutchens - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is one of the best dog mysteries in terms of painless explanation of the dog show scene, even including points, championships, grand championships, handlers, and more. It's easy for an author to either get bogged down explaining the minutia or cut it too short leaving the reader in the dark about what's going on. I would fault it on understanding of how the AKC works. First, it is not a wealthy organization, but more importantly, the board of directors is not hired, but elected from the delegate body. Each delegate represents a member club, so governance is provided by dog club members. Only the staff (president, vps, etc as well as lower staff members) are actually hired. Board members do not receive salaries, though their expenses may be reimbursed. They do not all live and work in NYC...they have other lives and jobs.

The descriptions of Juliet and her interactions with other dogs and humans were delightful. It's obvious this book was written with love for dogs and a passion for the GSP breed. I loved the information on training and care of dogs, though it seemed a little stilted at times. The dialogue could have been more natural. And it would have been best not to try to write southern dialect. As a southerner, I often find that offensive, as it makes us sound ignorant and slow-witted. And the contraction y'all is for 'you all.' it is not used when addressing a single person. (we actually use the word 'you' for that!)

All in all, a fun book, especially for dog lovers and the 'dog show crowd.' I always wondered what some of those judges are thinking ... Who knew?

3.0 out of 5 stars MIxed bag in writing and plot 7 Sept. 2013
By Terrie Curran - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really got into this--as a dog-lover learning about the show scene--and while most of the writing is fine, much dialog suffers from being 'lecture'. The author needs to be more subtle in conveying the (necessary) information, but when husband talks to wife (or some such) and says "Dear, as you know, our 4 year old pup is a four time winner..." (my made-up quote--but that sort of unreal dialog to let the reader know something that the characters clearly know--is very awkward). The plot moves along very well, but the conclusion is a bit rushed and muddled and has a sniff of 'deus ex machina' (i.e. out from nowhere). I think the author has all the bits and needs to be a more critical reader/editor. (I'd like to give it 3 1/2 stars and hope for future 4-5.)
3.0 out of 5 stars A Good Story 22 Jan. 2015
By Nancy Malven - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
For the most part I very much enjoyed this book. The players are likeable and the story moves along nicely. The reason I gave this book only 3 stars is due to the authors' attempt to write dialect. So many authors attempt to do this and all fail miserably, particularly when attempting to write southern/Texas dialect. Everyone winds up reading like that old cartoon character Foghorn Leghorn. Also the term "ya'll" is never ever used when speaking to a single person. "Ya'll" only refers to more than one person and no person in the south or in Texas that I have ever known or met says "ah" for "I". It is very insulting as I imagine people from Boston or New York or New Orleans are insulted by the sad attempt to write in their dialects.
