New York Times bestselling author and King of Canines Spencer Quinn is back with the next WOOF book!


Bowser the dog is doing great. He's been adopted by Birdie, the greatest girl in the world, and he gets lots of love, lots of walks, and sometimes even bacon!

But - why is Birdie looking so worried? Who broke into their house? Why is the new girl in town digging into the old mystery of what really happened to Birdie's dad, a policeman killed in the line of duty?

Bowser better keep his ears perked and his paws at the ready. A murder case that went cold long ago is fixing to get way too hot.

When Birdie was just a baby, her father, detective Robert Gaux, was killed in the line of duty while working on a case with the New Orleans police department. When multiple break-ins occur (including Birdie’s house), a mysterious woman and a suspicious man by the name of Vin Pardo appear. Clues start pointing back to the murdered detective. It is up to Bowser, Birdie’s faithful dog, to assist Birdie in unraveling the mysterious happenings of St. Roch.
I enjoyed how the author made Bowser such a humourous, loyal dog, and how he was portrayed without a care in the world. I also liked how the novel was written in Bowser’s point of view. It included his thoughts and feelings about the problems he and his owner faced; it really makes you have another view on how a dog might think. I enjoyed how this book was made into a thrilling mystery with twists and turns at every chapter. I would recommend this book for teens that are in grades 5-8 who are looking for an intriguing read to savour.
