Availability: Ready to download

A Greenwich Village PI and her pit bull hunt down killers in these three smart, witty mysteries from a Shamus Award winner. In This Dog for Hire, the debut of New York private detective Rachel Alexander and her pit bull, Dash—short for Dashiell—a hit-and-run leaves a local painter dead and his show dog, a basenji, temporarily missing.   After cracking that case, Rachel and A Greenwich Village PI and her pit bull hunt down killers in these three smart, witty mysteries from a Shamus Award winner. In This Dog for Hire, the debut of New York private detective Rachel Alexander and her pit bull, Dash—short for Dashiell—a hit-and-run leaves a local painter dead and his show dog, a basenji, temporarily missing.   After cracking that case, Rachel and Dash return in The Dog Who Knew Too Much to investigate a t’ai chi teacher’s fatal leap from a window. Rachel suspects there’s more involved, as the woman would never have left her beloved Akita behind.   Rounding out the collection is A Hell of a Dog, in which Rachel, a former dog trainer herself, must find out who’s killing off trainers at a professional gathering at a posh New York City hotel.   With comparisons to the mysteries of Laurien Berenson and Susan Conant, these novels—with “excellent” writing and a “nice touch of humor”—are an involving, atmospheric read for fans of strong female PIs, especially those with furry sidekicks (Library Journal).

Description From The Publisher: A Greenwich Village PI and her pit bull hunt down killers in these three smart, witty mysteries from a Shamus Award winner. In This Dog for Hire, the debut of New York private detective Rachel Alexander and her pit bull, Dash—short for Dashiell—a hit-and-run leaves a local painter dead and his show dog, a basenji, temporarily missing. After cracking that case, Rachel and Dash return in The Dog Who Knew Too Much to investigate a t’ai chi teacher’s fatal leap from a window. Rachel suspects there’s more involved, as the woman would never have left her beloved Akita behind. Rounding out the collection is A Hell of a Dog, in which Rachel, a former dog trainer herself, must find out who’s killing off trainers at a professional gathering at a posh New York City hotel. My Review: Each story has a different setting, but each involves animals, mainly dogs. The dags all play crucial parts in each mysteries and are as individual as their human counterparts. The characters grow with each new story. The writing is beautifully done and the scenes are so descriptive that you feel you are in the center of each interacting with the characters and events. The story moves quickly and you are soon starting a new one before you know it. There is so much to enjoy with each story. Leaving you wanting more. I can not wait to see where Rachel and Dash head off next. My rating is 4.25 out of 5 stars. Amazon link: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01M1D53MF/...

    This series gets better and better. The first I thought was just ok. The next was terrific in character and plot. Interesting and suprising with a major dog show as the environment. The next was set in an entirely different realm with even fuller characters. Each can be read as a stand-alone. In fact, skipping the first would bring you right into a page turner Netgalley free with review
