Presbyterian church secretary Cindy Preston and rabbi Jeremiah Silverman, introduced in The Lord Is My Shepherd (2010), team up again to solve another murder. This time the deceased is the personal assistant to Joseph Tyler, a wealthy member of Cindy’s church who’s launching a new program to pair up homeless people with rescue dogs. Cindy and Jeremiah are trying to stay out of the way of the investigation of the assistant’s murder—their last amateur-sleuthing foray landed them in the sights of a serial killer—but when homeless people begin getting killed and their dogs stolen, keeping out of it is no longer an option. Cindy and Jeremiah are two extremely likable protagonists, and the story is elaborate enough to keep readers interested but not so convoluted as to weigh the novel down. Though this is no cozy, the author does have a light touch—the danger to our heroes is real, but we’re never in any doubt that they’ll scrape through. --David Pitt
