Have you read a mystery dog book? Braced for Murder is a mystery story that involves 2 K9 basset hounds. It all begins when a freelance reporter Beanie received a phone call about a basset hound named Calamity. Calamity was in a humane Animal Shelter. Beanie already has a rescue basset hound, Cruiser. Beanie along with Cruiser went to the shelter to save Calamity. The story gets mysterious when the shelter manager’s body was discovered in the CO chamber room. The adventure of Beanie along with her partner in crime Cruiser begins. Of course, Calamity plays a role too in their mystery adventure.
Questions arise in mind while reading the first few chapters. Does a kill shelter still exist? We don’t know any that exist and hope for all shelters to be no-kill.
