Pru Marlowe is out at the nature preserve training Spot, a mixed breed as a Companion Dog for an elderly man. Spot alerts her to danger; checking it out she finds the body that appears to have been mauled by a large cat. As they are returning to the car to report the body, Spot stops her again and gets the thoughts “DANGER, CAT, SCARED, HOME”.
Pru calls her police friend Jim Creighton so Spot can lead him to the body. Now Pru is looking for clues as to what happen. IS THERE A LARGE CAT OUT THERE? Pru needs to find the answer before more lives are lost.
Not having read the previous books cause a problem.
There is no explanation of Pur’s gift. At times I wasn’t’ sure if Pru talking a person or an animal. Before long the story caught my interest and I didn’t put the book until I finished. There is good information on training service dogs.
I received a free copy from Netgalley for a honest review.
