Zack is a recent widower who inherits a house and some land in Oregon from a distant relative. Since he is mourning the death of his wife he decides that starting over somewhere else is the best thing he can do for himself. So, he moves. Almost immediately he has a corgi dog named Sherlock foisted on him and he also is accused of murder.
He and Sherlock must prove that Zack is innocent of the crime.
My rating: 4/5
I want to be clear here that my rating is based on my reading enjoyment and not necessarily how amazingly written the book was.
The mystery actually wasn't all that great. And, since it is a mystery I completely understand if that is kind of a turn off to people.
But, I absolutely loved the characters and particularly the authorial voice.
I loved Zack and Sherlock. I really enjoyed the exploration of the relationship between them. Particularly as Zack had never owned a dog before.
I appreciated how deep of a character Zack was. I don't often see a male protagonist in cozy mysteries and especially one who was sensitive and deep. His mourning for his wife touched my heart and Zack just seems like a nice guy. It is so refreshing to see a sensitive male character written by a male writer.
I loved following him.
If you love character driven stories and dogs then I recommend trying this book.
If you need an amazing mystery then this probably isn't' for you. It wasn't terrible. It was fine but the mystery itself didn't knock my socks off. The characters did and for me that was enough to make me eager to read more.
Poole is an adept writer. He has command of all the basic writing skills and weaves a fantastic story. It’s complex enough to keep you guessing, yet not convoluted. The characters are realistic and feel familiar to some folks I’ve known from a small town. The dialogue is enjoyable altho’ I could have done without the expletives. They were of the mild sort and just not really necessary when so many other creative options are available and I’m certain Poole is up to that task. Sigh...
There is no sexual content and no gratuitous violence. Any and all references to murder and death are done in a factual manner without much descriptive text. Were it not for the cheap lapses of language, this book would earn 5* and a G rating; as it is, 4* and PG will need to be. Even so, “Case of the One-Eyed Tiger” is an excellent adventure with new friends. I’m looking forward to visiting with them again.

Update: 13th October 2019 I have now read books 1 to 4 and thoroughly enjoyed all of them! In my opinion they just get better and better! I have 2 left to read and, like the last 2 mouthfuls of a favourite food, I am saving them to enjoy slowly , reading other books before coming back to fishing this banquet of corgi fun! I just hope the author has many more corgi case files for us in the future!
I will definitely be reading more of the series. Highly recommended.
