Are "mutts" as good as purebreds?
Daphne Coleman, with her little Lab cross Naiad, is determined to prove her dog's worth in the Enterprise dog show and agility contest, which now allows mixed breeds to participate, thanks to the advocacy of dog show judge Sinopa Folds.
Then murder strikes.
The top contender, a beautiful Irish setter, is found dead of poison.
Daphne is irate. Who would kill a dog?
But before Daphne can find out, murder strikes again, and this time it's Judge Sinopa Folds.
With accusations flying, Daphne puts her sleuthing skills to work and this time they're welcomed by detective Hector Rine, who's convinced there's a connection between the two deaths.
Can this tenuous new partnership not only solve the murders but be the start of something else?
