As a narrator, Roger leans heavily on description, with much of the dialogue following that formula for consistency, and some of his wry observations are true gems. In particular, don't miss the descriptions of the different board members of the AKC, which are very clever with several laugh-out-loud bits.
Mystery lovers will appreciate the homage paid to Robert B. Parker's Spenser series, with Bowman talking to a woman who wants to hire him but can't give specifics a la the opening of many Spenser novels, and the Pearl the Wonder Dog breed selected to be the canine star of the book.
Dog lovers, especially those who know anything about show dogs, and those who like their mysteries more cerebral than noir--although be ready for a surprising bit of raw action towards the end--will enjoy this book.
The descriptions of Juliet and her interactions with other dogs and humans were delightful. It's obvious this book was written with love for dogs and a passion for the GSP breed. I loved the information on training and care of dogs, though it seemed a little stilted at times. The dialogue could have been more natural. And it would have been best not to try to write southern dialect. As a southerner, I often find that offensive, as it makes us sound ignorant and slow-witted. And the contraction y'all is for 'you all.' it is not used when addressing a single person. (we actually use the word 'you' for that!)
All in all, a fun book, especially for dog lovers and the 'dog show crowd.' I always wondered what some of those judges are thinking ... Who knew?
